Is Asian cuisine the next trend in Detroit restaurants? Model D reports that
Dave Kwiatkowski and Marc Djozlija (both of Wright & Co. and Café 78) are a new Asian-inspired restaurant is headed for the Cass Corridor. Called The Peterboro, the restaurant is expected to be located in the same Chinatown complex as the forthcoming 8 Degrees Plato bar and bottle shop. The restaurant's underconstruction website features this brief blurb:
Located at the corner of Cass and Peterboro in Detroit's historic China Town, "The Peterboro" will be serve Asian-American fusion food in a casual and fun environment, along with craft cocktails and micro-brews.
Asian cuisine seems to be having a small resurgence on Detroit menus. Katoi in Corktown will open soon with Thai-inspired flavors, while downtown's forthcoming Townhouse restaurant will offer a sushi bar and dim sum carts. Last fall, West Village's Craft Work began offering sushi on weeknights. Eater has reached out to Dave Kwiatkowski for details on the new project (see update below). In the meantime, check out Curbed's complete update for more details on Chinatown's coming attractions.
Update/Correction, 04/15, 6:21 p.m.: Dave Kwiatkowski tells Eater he and Djozlija are consulting on The Peterboro, which will be headed by close friend and current general manager at The Sugar House, Charles Inchaustegui. The headline for this article has been updated to reflect the new information.
