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.

Oktoberfest is the annual German festival that originated over 200 years ago as a celebration for a royal wedding. If you can’t make it to Germany this year for the full Oktoberfest experience, you can still eat like you’re there with our Oktoberfest meal kit to go. Our Oktoberfest meal is chilled and ready to heat, so you can spend more time running around in your lederhosen.
Order online and pick up curbside this Oktoberfest meal kit to prepare a German celebration right at home.
We are currently working on ways to serve our community safely. Information about curbside pick up options for our Holiday Bake Sale and other special events will be available soon. Please check back often for changes in service and special events. Thank you for your support.
