Eminem Is Opening a Restaurant Called Mom's Spaghetti
A permanent location in downtown Detroit.
A reference to the lyrics of the rapper’s hit track “Lose Yourself,” the project is a collaboration between Eminem, his manager Paul Rosenberg and Union Joints Restaurant Group. “We’ve had a lot of fun putting this project together with the folks at Union Joints, and the response from fans has been overwhelmingly positive,” Rosenberg shared in a press release.
Prior to the permanent opening, the pasta pop-up has made multiple appearances at the musician’s live performances and festivals like Coachella. Throughout the pandemic, the restaurant has also supported frontline caregivers based in Detroit. “The previous pop-ups were really a test for us to determine whether there was enthusiasm for a regularly-occurring Mom’s Spaghetti spot that would be open all year long,” Rosenberg added. In addition to the restaurant, Eminem will be opening a store called The Trailer where Stans can shop for merch.
Union Joints’ co-owner Curt Catallo further explained: “We’re proud of the fact that we created a scratch sauce that tastes like it’s straight from the jar, and wok-firing the noodles gives it that leftover pasta snap. The walk-up window and small diner-like spot for people to eat add to the feeling that this is a homegrown, DIY experience.”
Mom’s Spaghetti and The Trailer will open on September 29. Head to the official website for more information.
