Now though fall, Book Tower is introducing a series of new food and beverage concepts to the growing restaurant scene in downtown Detroit. Located within the historic landmark, which has undergone a recent $400M restoration, the culinary-diverse establishments will be operated by Method Co., in partnership with Bedrock.
Complementing the openings of ROOST Detroit, The Residences at Book Tower and Anthology Events, the additions are designed to further transform the Washington Boulevard Historic District with unparalleled accommodations, and dining options for locals and visitors.
Le Suprême endeavors to bring the taste and style of early twentieth-century Paris back to Detroit – a city once known as The Paris of the West. A 210 seat Parisian-inspired brasserie providing lux French fare, such as Moules Frites, Soupe à l’Oignon Gratinée, Steak Au Poivre, Le Suprême offers all-day dining at the restaurant’s bar, alfresco, or in its elegant dining room. The restaurant features an in-house patisserie and boulangerie, plus a curated cocktail program and a selection of over 300 world-class wines and champagnes.
“Our goal is that Le Supreme, Bar Rotunda, and our subsequent openings within Book Tower will offer guests a new opportunity to discover the beauty and spirit of this legendary city.” ~ Randall Cook
In the Book Tower’s lobby atrium, Bar Rotunda is a 70-seat all-day cafe and wine bar serving as a destination for coffees, pastries, small plates, wine and cocktails, with design and service that is also inspired by the grand cafés and venerable hotel bars of early twentieth-century Paris.
Canopied by The Rotunda, Book Tower’s marble arched atrium and 100-year-old Kamper-glass skylight, Bar Rotunda offers wine or cocktails during breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Method Co. is scheduled to open several additional concepts at Book Tower later this fall including Kamper’s (featured image), a warm and inviting rooftop bar and cocktail lounge located on the 14th floor of the Book Tower building, which offers gorgeous views of the city while it pays homage to the building’s original architect, Louis Kamper.
Sakazuki, is an intimate street level sake pub featuring sandos and exclusive Japanese libations; and Hiroki San, a new iteration of Method’s famed Philadelphia eatery, Hiroki, is said to feature izakaya and omakase style dining.
Le Suprême, Hiroki-San and Sakazuki were collaboratively designed by Method Studios, Method Co.’s in-house design firm, and Philadelphia based Stokes Architecture + Design, while Kamper’s and Bar Rotunda were designed in partnership between ODA Architecture and Method Studios.
