Pizza & pasta

June 25, 2019

 

Replacing Will Leather Goods – 4120 Second Avenue, in Detroit’s Midtown – will be the latest from restaurateur Jeremy Sasson, who owns Heirloom Hospitality, known for Prime + Proper and Townhouse restaurants in both downtown Birmingham and Detroit. The 9,000-square-foot space will include a restaurant with a big pizza focus and a market where Executive Chef Myles McVay of Otus Supply will lead the kitchen. Sasson said they will explore naturally fermented breads and natural yeasts – including in their Neapolitan pizzas – not just through bread making but also in the curing process of the food. Produce, pasta making, and rotisserie will also be large focuses on the menu. “The food is intended to be very – I’ll call it ‘health-minded,’ at its core,” Sasson said. “So, food you can enjoy and eat an abundance of and not necessarily feel like you’re down too many calories.” The market will follow a similar fashion, plus offer jams, oils, and beer and wine. Sasson said the aesthetic is inspired by vintage Palm Springs-meets-coastal-Italy, and they plan to keep some of the building’s historical beauty. With the goal to start construction over the summer, Sasson speculated they could be open as early as the end of the year.
