After a successful pop-up and food truck business, Norma G's Caribbean style cuisine is celebrating the grand opening of their new restaurant in Detroit. The Caribbean style cuisine is the first full-service, sit down restaurant to open in the Jefferson-Chalmers neighborhood in nearly 30 years.
“Opening this restaurant in Detroit has been a dream of mine,” said Gouvia. “Thanks to the support of my family, the city of Detroit, and so many funders, I have a permanent home in Jefferson-Chalmers. I hope my move here will inspire other entrepreneurs to join in the transformation and revitalization of this area.”
“Lester and Norma G’s are a perfect example of who Motor City Match was created for - Detroiters who have talent and a dream to open their own business and make a difference in our city," said Mayor Mike Duggan. "Not only will Norma G's become a great neighborhood restaurant for the Jefferson Chalmers community, it will provide good jobs and help attract even more businesses to the area. Detroit needs more business owners like Lester.”
