Union Joints, the restaurant group behind suburban hotspots Vinsetta Garage, Clarkston Union, Gran Castor, and others is opening a new restaurant, Union Assembly, at Woodward and Columbia in Detroit this fall.
The two-story 14,800-square-foot restaurant has room for up to 500 guests, including seating on a mezzanine and two large patios. There’s also a private dining room.
The restaurant, which anchors the Little Caesars corporate extension, has elevated views of Woodward and Comerica Park from the indoor-outdoor bar, and profiles of the Fox Theatre and Fillmore Detroit. It’s Union Joints’ first new construction restaurant.
Photographer Michelle Gerard recently had a sneak peek at the restaurant interior.
The walls throughout the restaurant are decorated with vintage wallpaper, including in the unisex bathroom on the second floor.
A DJ can enter a red-and-white striped booth from the mezzanine.
The menu will include game-day classics, including Detroit-style pizza, “grown-up hot pockets,” macaroni and cheese, hot perch, an extensive lineup of salads, and other items that draw on the national and international experiences of the executive chefs.
The opening date is contingent on hiring, but the team has a target date of early fall.
