The former Beau Jack’s, at the northwest corner of Maple and Telegraph in Bloomfield Township, will reopen Wednesday under new ownership, a new name, and a new menu featuring “updated classic American cuisine.”
“Visitors to Beau’s (Grillery) will feel right at home with the traditional and comfortable décor and homemade classics,” says Zack Sklar, chef and owner of Peas & Carrots Hospitality, which also owns and operates Beau’s. “When developing this restaurant, I wanted to ensure that all our guests will feel right at home as soon as they walk through the doors.”
The 7,000-square-foot restaurant, which seats 165, and will employ nearly 100, is home to three wood-fired grills, where staff will prepare nine varieties of classic meats and fish on a daily basis. Ranging in price from $17 to $33, options include BBQ half-chicken, center cut filet mignon, and salmon.
Other entrees on the menu include sandwiches, burgers, mushroom pasta, and rotisserie prime rib, which will be complemented by 16 rotating seasonal sides, including quinoa “fried rice,” baked apricot-Ritz crackers, corn cakes, and potatoes prepared in five ways: sweet potato fries, french fries, twice-baked potato, cheesy potatoes, and mashed potatoes.
“I am looking forward to reintroducing American classics to diners and visitors of metro Detroit,” says Executive Chef Daniel Campbell, formerly of the award-winning Roast restaurant. “Creating this menu provided Zack and I with the opportunity to take what we all know and love and turn it on its side.”
The full bar features more than 20 wines by the glass, 60 by the bottle, and Chateau D’Orignac for dessert. There will also be a selection of draft and bottled beer, whiskeys served in a variety of styles, and classic cocktails, including the Mint Julep, Side Car, and Stoli Doli.
For the décor, Ron Rea, who also worked on Sklar’s Social Kitchen & Bar in Birmingham and MEX in Bloomfield Township, used copper, brass, and steel materials throughout, including in the bar and on the ceiling. The exterior of the building has been completely remodeled and now includes cedar shake siding, copper planter boxes, and landscaping accents throughout.
Located at 4108 W. Maple Rd., Beau’s is open 4-11 p.m. Monday through Sunday and is expected to open for lunch and brunch service on Oct. 1. For more information, visit beausbloomfield.com.
