CAPE CORAL, Fla. — On Tuesday, Detriot Pizza Joint, which was destroyed during Hurricane Ian, hosted a pop-up location at My Sweet Art off Nicholas Parkway in Cape Coral.

Todd Stern owns Detriot Pizza Joint and said he is still searching for a new location, more than one year after the storm.

"The whole restaurant was completely wiped away,” said Stern.

On Tuesday, inside the French restaurant, Stern wasn't serving up French favorites or even pizza.

“We are not doing pizza because there is a pizza place in this strip center so we are being very respectful to them but we are doing Detroit-style food which is very hard to find down here and we are starting with the coney dog,” said Stern.

Stern told Fox 4 he is grateful for the opportunity.

"My Sweet Art, they are very much part of this community and they saw that I needed a place to do a pop-up...I can't thank them enough," said Stern.

Detriot Pizza Joint will be hosting another pop-up at My Sweet Art on Oct. 24.
