On September 29, Oscar-winning singer-songwriter and rapper Eminem opened a new restaurant in downtown Detroit. The restaurant is named “Mom’s Spaghetti” after the most famous part of her lyrics in the singer’s Oscar winning song, You lose.
The lyrics to this 2002 hit song from the Eminem movie 8 miles, understand:
“His palms are sweaty, his knees weak, his arms heavy. There is already vomit on his sweater. Mom’s spaghetti.
Eminem (aka Slim Shady) also surprised fans by serving them the food window items. However, this was only exclusive to the first ten customers. According to the Detroit Free Press, the new diner / restaurant line was reaching several blocks by the time it opened.
Where is Eminem’s Mom’s Spaghetti located? Everything about the new restaurant
The restaurant is located in downtown Detroit (the rapper’s hometown), inside the new Union Assembly restaurant at 2131 Woodward Avenue. It is located in the alley between Union Assembly and The Fillmore, across from Comerica Park.
“Mom’s Spaghetti” was born out of a partnership between Eminem and his manager Paul Rosenberg and the Union Joints restaurant group. The same company also helped Eminem launch a “trial” pop-up version of the restaurant at The shelter in 2017. This time, the project took on a permanent place and time route.
The manager of the legendary 48-year-old singer Paul Rosenberg mentioned it in his press release:
“The previous pop-ups were really a test for us to see if there was any enthusiasm for a mom’s spaghetti spot that would perform regularly and be open year round.”
In addition, he also mentioned a store adjacent to the upstairs, called The teaser, which will exclusively sell Eminem merchandise.
Meanwhile, the co-owner of Union Joints said:
“When we were first asked to create the pop-ups, it was an honor for all of us involved. The opportunity to build a permanent location based on an incredibly meta-benchmark was an opportunity that everyone at Union Joints, as a Metro Detroit restaurant group, took very seriously.
How Eminem fans react to sky-high menu prices
The menu includes three main courses – Mom’s Spaghetti ($ 9), Mom’s Spaghetti with Meatballs ($ 12), Mom’s Spaghetti with Rabbit Balls (vegan) and an S’ghetti Sandwich ($ 11) with water and soda (soda).
The restaurant’s pricey menu drew a lot of criticism from fans of Eminem (aka Marshall Mathers III).
However, some fans were also excited to visit the restaurant.
Despite some negative comments, Em manager Paul said:
“… the response from fans has been overwhelmingly positive.”
