Krazy Jim's is now Krazy Pierre's: Blimpy Burger under new ownership
Edward Vielmetti | AnnArbor.com
It’s a tradition in transition. After 18 years under the watchful eye of owner Rich Magner, Ann Arbor's burger institution Blimpy Burger has been purchased by a French restaurateur.
Patrons will see an immediate change in both the dÃ©cor and the menu. The familiar burger menu will remain, but the focus has shifted to traditional French cuisine, and the cafeteria line has been replaced by sit-down, white tablecloth table service.
Joel Cronenwett, a Blimpy Burger staffer, confirmed the changes.Â
“The restaurant has been renamed Krazy Pierre's Bourgeois Burger," Cronenwett said. We’ll have French soups, prime rib, French desserts and even flaming CrÃªpes Suzette. We’ll still have our regular burgers on the menu, but we’re excited to be offering a this new upscale menu and service."
