DETROIT, September 2, 2010 — The historic and classy Caucus Club along with the brand new Detroit Seafood Market are the latest additions to an already impressive list of fine dining heavy-hitters participating in the fall edition of Detroit Restaurant Week.
“We are extremely pleased to have the Caucus Club and Detroit Seafood Market be apart of our third Detroit Restaurant Week,” said Jason Huvaere, Executive Director of Detroit Restaurant Week. “I expect both will be fantastic ambassadors of fine dining because of their great menus and inviting atmospheres.”
Caucus Club is located inside the Penobscot Building in downtown Detroit. It opened in 1952 to manage the overflow of customers from the London Chop House. In 1961 the now famous Barbara Streisand performed there before heading to New York to perform on the Jack Parr Show. Iron Chef Bobby Flay visited to feature Caucus Club’s Sautéed Lake Perch and Oysters in Champagne Sauce for his “Food Nation” television program. Today, with its English Gentleman’s Club charm and classic cuisine, the Caucus Club is still a popular spot for judges, lawyers, and Detroit business leaders.
“We are excited to be part of Detroit Restaurant Week,” said Mary Belloni, who along with her son Robert has owned the Caucus Club since 1994. “Detroit has always been a terrific place to find amazing food, and for us this promotion will be a great opportunity for us to introduce new people to an old classic.”
Detroit Seafood Market, located in the Paradise Valley entertainment district, opened in late July and since then Executive Chef Leonardo Vulagi has impressed locals with his culinary skills, while the servers have proved to be on top of their game, and the owner Kenny Akinwale has shown a strong commitment to making his restaurant a success in Detroit.
Detroit Restaurant Week is Friday, September 24 through Sunday, October 4.
