Alpino to open in Corktown

A new restaurant project, Alpino, is in the works in Detroit’s Corktown, on the corner of Bagley and Trumbull – the former home of Lady of the House. The 3,200 square foot space is being brought back to life by Detroit native and New York hospitality veteran David Richter. David and his family moved back to Michigan last year to begin this project. “I’m thrilled to be back in Detroit, opening a restaurant in the city my heart never left. The culinary scene was being talked about in the cities I was living in, inspiring me to come home and be part of the growth,” says Richter. The restaurant’s menu will weave together traditional dishes from countries along the Alpine Mountains in Europe, including Austria, France, Germany, Italy and Switzerland. The concept of Alpino is inspired by the agriculture found in and around mountainous terrain, sourced from hills, rivers and streams, focused on yearlong diversity, be it fresh or preserved. Alpino’s beverage program will offer a unique list of lesser-known, affordable wines from that part of the world along with curated cocktails and European-style beers. The restaurant plans to open this winter, before the 2022 holidays. 1426 Bagley Street, Detroit
