The restaurant industry in Detroit and the rest of the state has taken a tough hit during the outbreak of the coronavirus.

Justin Winslow, president and CEO of the Michigan Restaurant & Lodging Association, talks with Deadline Detroit about the future of the industry and its integral role in Detroit's comeback. He predicts as many as a third of restaurants could close for good. And those that survive may have to alter menus and make other changes.

Winslow is asking the state to let dining resume May 29, the day after the current stay-home order expires. See the full interview below.
