After the impressive restoration of Book Tower, five different dining and bar concepts are set to open over the next several months. Expect both French and Japanese options, with service from morning to late night.
Here's what we can expect to see at the revitalized corner of Washington and Grand River:
The two concepts opening this summer will reflect Detroit's French history. Le Suprême will have French cuisine as well as pastries, breads, desserts, and cocktails. Seating options include the dining room, the bar, a 24-seat private dining room, and an outdoor space. Le Suprême will be open all day.
Bar Rotunda will be open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Expect pastries, coffee, small plates, wine, and cocktails. Bar Rotunda is located inside the lobby, where guests can look up and see the beautifully restored glass skylight. (rendering at the top of the page)
This fall, three more concepts will be opening:
Hiroki-San will be an izakaya and omakase style dining on the lower level of Book Tower, while Sakazuki will a more casual sake and sando bar on the ground level.
Kamper's will have indoor/outdoor seating options on the 14th floor. The bar and lounge is named after Book Tower architect Louis Kamper.
“Dating back to the 18th century, Detroit’s rich French history and its unparalleled contributions to the American manufacturing and music industries were attributes that we wanted to celebrate with the conception of Le Supreme and Bar Rotunda. The revitalization efforts that have gone into Detroit’s downtown core are remarkable, resulting in a renaissance that we are excited to be a part of,” said Randall Cook, CEO and Co-Founder of Method Co. “Our goal is that Le Supreme, Bar Rotunda, and our subsequent openings within Book Tower will offer guests a new opportunity to discover the beauty and spirit of this legendary city.”
