Food from Two James
“Well, we just put a roof on,” laughed chef Brendan McCall about Supergeil, his upcoming restaurant with Two James Distillery owner, David Landrum. Needless to say there is still quite a bit to be done at 2442 Michigan Avenue, Detroit – an empty warehouse now getting a very significant remodel – before their late summer/early fall opening. The new establishment is just across the way from Two James Spirits tasting room in Corktown. Berlin slang for “super cool,” Supergeil will have döner kebabs as the menu’s anchor, with their flavors leaning towards Spain, Turkey, and the Balkans. “We want to make it really good, make it very crave-able, and make it affordable,” McCall said. “We want to be a part of everyone’s daily lives rather than a special occasion.” The drink menu will naturally feature Two James spirits, and will be heavy on gin and tonic selections.
