About the restaurant
Chic yet approachable, historic while tastefully modern. The Apparatus Room bridges the old and the new, offering iconic New American cuisine by Chef Rece Hogerheide rooted in Midwestern ingredients, thoughtfully crafted cocktails, and esoteric wines. By blending a three-meal restaurant, elevated dinner service with signature touches, and a world class hotel bar, the Apparatus Room welcomes locals and travels alike to sip, stay, and enjoy one of Detroit’s signature restaurants. Our cocktail program is classically focused with inspiration drawn from the history of the building and the city itself. The ingredients may be familiar and the presentation simple and classic, though each cocktail has a deeper story to tell for those who have time to listen. Sommelier Liz Martinez showcases the diversity of both Old World & New World wines, and the regions are separated as such on the menu. Winemakers that take pride in sustainable, environmental practices are always on the top of our mind.

Comfort Food
Detroit
About the restaurant
Cork & Gabel, a restaurant fusion of Irish, Italian, and German cuisine, opened in 2018 in Detroit's Corktown district. We are known for our use of modern techniques on old school classics. European comfort food is a staple at Cork & Gabel. We pride ourselves on being a scratch kitchen, sourcing and using Michigan vendors including farmers and small business. Fresh is key when it comes to providing a great experience and we make everything we can fresh and in house.

Detroit
About the restaurant
Supergeil is inspired by the energy and food of Berlin’s Kreuzberg district.

We are bringing our version of the Kreuzberg Doner experience to Detroit and creating a place where you can begin and end your evening. Our cocktail menu pulls from the vibrant colors, spices and punchy flavors of the district. Our light and dark beer selection are a reference to the “branded” corner bars scattered throughout the neighborhood. Our food is diverse, direct and craveable.

The only negative comment is that our pork chop was a bit overcooked.

About the restaurant
an intimate 48-seat neighborhood restaurant in royal oak, michigan. we strive to be thoughtful about the food we plate, atmosphere we create, & energy we spread.

our goal at beppé is simple: to be intentional about the food & drink we serve, while fostering a welcoming environment.

whether you love beppé for our house-made pasta, to share with those you love plates, summer patio, thoughtfully curated cocktails, or a quality bottle of wine, we're here to be your spot & can't wait for you to keep coming back.

as a smaller establishment, we feel obligated to accommodate and serve all customers who want to dine with us in a timely manner. with that said, we do have policies limiting length of reservations. groups of 2-3 are allowed 90 minutes. groups 4+ are allowed 120 minutes. we ask that this policy is taken into consideration before choosing to dine with us.

bar seating is first come first serve.

we do not offer separate checks for groups of 5+.

We were on their lovely, lovely patio for drinks and apps. There’s a beautiful draped cloth ceiling to protect from too much sun or little rain sprinkles, as we had that night. Very California. Delicious food (especially the cauliflower with cashew butter and dates), and the service was friendly and attentive. Other times, we’ve had the entrees, which are also delicious.

The food is excellent but perhaps a bit pricey. The atmosphere is hip and young. Service is excellent. There is a service fee included with the check.
