There’s a park rising on the west side of downtown Detroit at Cass and Grand River, and today we have more information on the restaurant space that’s going to go in it.
DTE Energy, who owns and is constructing the new public access park, announced it has partnered with restaurateurs Norm and Bonnie LePage to operate the restaurant.
The restaurant, currently under construction, will open this fall and will be the first restaurant in the city for the LePages who also own Clubhouse BFD in Rochester Hills (that’s owned by their son, Scott LePage), Big Rock Chop House and Griffin Claw in Birmingham.
According to DTE Energy, the restaurant will feature:
- Seamless and connected indoor and outdoor dining spaces with sliding glass walls that open to offer a flexible floor plan and outdoor dining.
- A noutdoor staircase will lead to a green rooftop dining space with panoramic views of the park and city skyline.
- An expansive ceiling made of Forest Stewardship Council Certified Sapele mahogany wood, ensuring that the wood is sustainably harvested from responsibly managed forests.
Architectural firm, Touloukian Touloukian, Inc., is leading the construction of the rooftop’s green restaurant space. Interior and patio design is by Victor Saroki, and Kelly Building Company is performing the build out of the space.
While the 85 indoor seat, 125 outdoor seat restaurant will open in the fall, the park will open in July of this year.
