Former Brush Park brunch spot Le Petit Dejeuner is making good its promise to return — and this time with mimosas. Owner Tina Motley confirms to Eater that she's testing a new partnership with Grand River Avenue's TV Lounge starting this week.
Dejeuner will occupy the under-utilized stage space at the club, she explains, and will take advantage of the Lounge's liquor license. "The bar will be open during my hours that's kind of a plus for both of us," she adds. Motley will start off the week serving her original shared plates menu, but plans to test new items like shrimp and grits, German chocolate waffles, and salmon hash once she gets more comfortable in the kitchen.
Meanwhile, Dejeuner's owner is moving forward with litigation against her former landlord, who she claims tried to evict her when property values in the Brush Park neighborhood increased. Motley says she spent most of her savings and the better part of a year renovating the building and getting through city inspections and hopes to recoup some of her losses.
Le Petit Dejeneur opens Tuesday through Sunday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the TV Lounge.
