Kuzzo’s Chicken and Waffles puts good vibes and great food in the atmosphere as the newest addition to the Livernois Corridor on Detroit’s northwest side. Situated in the heart of Fashion Ave, Kuzzo’s Chicken and Waffles is the official new kid’s on the block and rightfully so.
After months of building and planning Detroit native and former Detroit Lion’s player Ron Bartell finally opened the doors to Kuzzo’s on January 27th for a soft opening. Now, just one month in arrival before 10 am or earlier is a must if you don’t plan to wait before you are able to have a seat and enjoy the Bartell family’s infamous cinnamon buttermilk waffles.
The menu an ode to true Detroit natives with combination platters of popular slang like the ‘Trey-Deuce” or the ‘What Up Doe’ featuring your choice of 3pcs fried chicken, signature buttermilk waffles, cheese eggs and grits. Everything at Kuzzo’s is fresh being a true scratch kitchen. What’s better than Blue Kool-aide or Homemade Lemonade to wash it all down with?
The name Kuzzo is a play on a term of endearment. It’s meant for anyone who’s a friend, family member or someone from a similar culture. Kuzzo’s restaurant lives up to it’s name in every essence. From the moment that you enter Kuzzo’s Detroit, you can’t help but feel the energy of right at home.
At Kuzzo’s everyone is family and the vibes are so good that you may just want to sit and stay a while. In the corner by the bar you may catch an episode of Girlfriend’s playing on TVOne or in the main dining room a group of hipster’s sitting next to a grandmother and her crew of ladies enjoying a Tender Love and a cup of freshly brewed Michigan Great Lakes coffee.
If you are the one to enjoy the moment perhaps sit and stare out of the glass windows a bit you may notice that Kuzzo’s Chicken and Waffles is the first of many new buildings and businesses to the Avenue of Fashion. A historic shopping district full of many African American owned small businesses. The new kid’s on the block brought a new energy and this is only the beginning.
