Capitol Park’s restaurant lineup continues to balloon. The downtown area is slated to welcome a new micro apartment building from Bedrock across the street from Urban Bean Co. On Thursday, Dan Gilbert’s real estate arm revealed further details of the 28 Grand project including plans for 4,500-square-feet of retail space and a restaurant concept by culinary duo Marc Bogoff and Eli Boyer.
Bogoff is the owner of the popular Stockyard food truck and Supper Club while Boyer is a restaurant industry veteran who’s worked with Chicago restaurant group DMK and Gold Cash Gold in Corktown (he left the restaurant in June 2015). The pair announced their partnership earlier this year and are currently in the process of building out Voyager, a Ferndale-based seafood restaurant and raw bar.
Eater reached out to the pair for more information about the unnamed Capitol Park eatery. Boyer declined to provide any specifics on the new development, noting that it’s still approximately a year from opening and there are “many details still to be worked out.”
Boyer had previously alluded to other projects in interviews with Eater, saying in April, "We've got some other stuff in the works. Maybe in Detroit next." Bogoff, too, has expressed interest in developing a brick-and-mortar version of his food truck.
This is the latest edition to Capitol Park’s growing list of restaurant developments. Go! Sy Thai, La Lanterna (a throwback project from Da Edoardo Restaurant Group), and The Detroit Optimist Society’s Bad Luck bar are all slated to open nearby in The Albert Building. Townhouse owner Jeremy Sasson is also developing a massive modern steakhouse called Prime + Proper with an invite-only bar at the corner of State and Griswold. More food-related retail projects in the vicinity are expected to be announced in the very near future.
