Nothing brings me more joy than developing the next generation of Detroit’s great chefs. Sharing the experience is at the heart of why we opened the FiftyOne O One. Our new menu draws its inspiration from local farms and markets, focusing on exceptional ingredients at the peak of their season.
The path from earth to plate remains clear and the cuisine reflects the complex layers of subtle craft beneath a simple decorative style. I invite you to come as you are and participate in the education of the next generation of Detroit’s great chefs.
