Westborn Market's future Plymouth outpost will include a bistro. The Detroit News reports that the local, family-owned grocer has asked Marais chef/owner David Gilbert consult on a menu for a 90-seat eatery opening in the new market. The restaurant-market combo located inside Plymouth's historic post office will be the first of its kind for the Westborn brand.
The market in Plymouth will be about half the size of other locations and in turn the bistro is expected to have a smaller footprint with 20 seats inside and a larger 70-seat patio. Gilbert, who recently returned to his post as executive chef at Marais, will stay at his Grosse Pointe restaurant. Two unnamed sous chef will run the Plymouth eatery.
Correction: Chef Gilbert is not the owner but rather a consultant on the menu for the restaurant.
