AKA super awesome
Detroit newcomer Supergeil at 2442 Michigan Avenue is the latest venture from David Landrum, owner of Two James Spirits, which is conveniently located just across the street. Housed in a beautifully restored 1900’s Corktown brick structure, Landrum says Supergeil’s interior creates an environment that is organic and lively with the use of hanging plants, Spanish tiles and warm woods. Chef Brendan McCall, formerly of Ann Arbor’s Mani Osteria and Isalita, will serve as chef de cuisine for the menu which features the Berlin Döner – a type of Turkish kebab made of meat cooked on a vertical rotisserie. Although one can expect to find the full range of Two James’s distilled products available, Landrum says the bar will focus on gin. “We will have eight different gin and tonics drinks along with frozen gin cocktails. The gin pairs very well with our food,” he said. In addition, the eatery will be importing sherry from Malaga, Spain – also a perfect complement to their Mediterranean cuisine. If anyone wonders where the name Supergeil comes from, it translates to “super awesome” in German. It certainly sounds as if this new establishment has been aptly named.
