An iconic space in Detroit restaurant history – the top of the Renaissance Center – is about to get a new chapter.

James Beard Award winning chef Shawn McClain will be opening a restaurant in Detroit. This time in the Renaissance Center, home to the headquarters of General Motors.

His restaurant will go in the former Coach Insignia space on the 71st and 72nd floors.

The restaurant is expected to be open the fall of 2018.

This is the first restaurant to be opened by McClain and the restaurant group McClain Camarota Hospitality in Detroit. The group is made up of McClain, his wife Holly McClain, and Richard and Sarah Camarota.

McCain Camarota was formed in 2009. Since then the group has opened three successful restaurants in Las Vegas, Sage, Five50 Pizza and Libertine Social.

The 20,000 square-foot project will be designed by architect Greg Keffer of Rockwell Group.

The name and concept for the new restaurant will be released at a later date.
