The Whitney is celebrating the end of M-1 rail construction with some new offerings. It has reopened for lunch, updated its Sunday - and now Saturday - brunch, and it's expanding its High Tea service to Saturdays and Sundays.
Also in the announcement is new Executive Chef Paul Jackman, formerly owner and corporate chef at D’Amato’s restaurant and Goodnight Gracie Martini Bar. Jackman joined The Whitney in June and has over 30 years of culinary experience in the metro Detroit area and has updated and augmented the menus for all meal services. Pastry Chef Eric Bungee also offers more than 20 desserts now, including many flaming desserts.
Lunch had been cancelled due to the difficulty in navigating M-1 rail construction. The Whitney now promises to get guests in and out in under an hour for lunch. The new lunch menu includes many different entrees and salads, plus a two course Mansion Luncheon with choices of whitefish, sliced tenderloin, jumbo shrimp scampi, or saffron risotto, paired with soup, salad or Eggplant Bruscetta.
