Eateries Add To Dynamic Restaurant Scene Downtown
June 4, 2014 (DETROIT) – Bedrock Real Estate Services today announced three dynamic new restaurants that will soon add flavor in the heart of Detroit’s Central Business District. Each restaurant will provide a unique dining experience for Detroiters. The restaurants will occupy space in 1500 Woodward, 1001 Woodward and Chrysler House (719 Griswold Street).
“We are focused on attracting a variety of quality sit-down and quick-casual restaurants to downtown that create an urban experience that can’t be replicated in the suburbs,” said Dan Mullen, Vice President of Leasing and Development for Bedrock Real Estate Services. “The added variety of new restaurants is just what downtown Detroit needs.”
The three new restaurant tenants that Bedrock has recruited to downtown Detroit include:
• Wright & Company (1500 Woodward; 3,107 square feet): A joint venture between Dave Kwiatkowski (owner of Sugar House) and Marc Djozlija (former head chef at MGM Grand’s Wolfgang Puck), located on the second floor of 1500 Woodward Avenue, at the northeast corner of Woodward Avenue and John R. Street. Wright & Company specializes in contemporary American small plates, craft cocktails and natural wines. The restaurant will be open this summer Monday through Wednesday from 4 p.m. to midnight and Thursday through Saturday 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. For more information visit www.wrightdetroit.com.
• Freshii (1001 Woodward; 1,066 square feet): Owned by Lunchtime Global owner Randy Dickow and his brother Andrew Dickow. Freshii is a restaurant focused on providing fresh and nutritious meal choices for people on the go. The global franchise was founded in Toronto and now is in some of the largest cities in North America including Chicago, New York, Washington, D.C. and San Francisco. Freshii will offer salads, wraps, soups, burritos, rice bowls, fresh-squeezed juices, smoothies, frozen yogurt and more. The Detroit location will open in September serving breakfast, lunch and dinner Monday through Friday. For more information visit www.freshii.com.
