A tribute to Mother Handsome

A new café – Mother Handsome – has opened in Oak Park, joining the city’s burgeoning restaurant/bar and brewery scene. Mother Handsome is named after a legendary local tavern keeper from the 1800’s who was known as a rough and boisterous character who was also kind and welcoming. The new café/bar aims to honor Mother Handsome’s legacy by creating a space for the community to gather and experience top-notch hospitality and welcomeness. The establishment is co-owned by Brooke Zadorsky and Aaron Tye, who also own Detroit Fleat in Ferndale. Mother Handsome will offer pastries and coffees by day and cocktails and pizzas in the evening. “We wanted to make our menu approachable,” said Zadorsky. “It’s a minimal menu – we wanted to do everything really well.” A full bar offers beer, wine and cocktails with a focus on martinis. “We want to be known as having the best espresso martini in the area,” said Zodorsky. Mother Handsome has seating for 115 guests which includes bar seating, high-tops and a lounge area. There’s also a private event space which accommodates up to 50 people for events such as corporate luncheons, birthdays, showers, rehearsal dinners and more. 14661 W. Eleven Mile Road, Suite 500, Oak Park
