The casual Chinese American restaurant and bar the Peterboro is returning. The eatery closed its doors on July 22 to undergo renovations and an ownership transfer.
Taking over is a familiar face. According to former operator Dave Kwiatkowski of the Detroit Optimist Society, Charles Inchaustegui — who had served as managing partner when the restaurant first opened its doors in 2016 — has taken over ownership of the restaurant.
The closure over the summer took employees by surprise, according to a Daily Detroit report at the time saying that employees only had a few hours notice that the restaurant would be closed for an extended period of time. The Peterboro’s Facebook account posted late Tuesday, October 18, that management is “looking to assemble a fresh crew.”
The Detroit Optimist Society operates a variety of restaurants and bars in the area including the Sugar House, Time Will Tell, and more.
