Hamilton’s opens in Corktown

The new Godfrey Hotel Detroit (Curio Collection by Hilton) has opened its full-service restaurant, Hamilton’s, a vibrant neighborhood tavern focused on providing the community with an approachable, yet refined dining experience. Hamilton’s is a collaboration of Detroit-based Chickpea Hospitality and international real estate Oxford Capital Group. Chickpea Hospitality owns and operates several restaurants in the Metro Detroit area including Leila in Detroit, and Phoenicia and Forest in Birmingham. Hamilton’s food and beverage offerings highlight local and seasonal ingredients along with a thoughtful beverage program while staying focused on classic American fare. According to Samy Eid, co-owner of Chickpea Hospitality Group, “When we were asked to collaborate with Oxford and the Godfrey team, we wanted to deliver a restaurant that was very approachable and would make people feel very comfortable. We wanted to open a restaurant where people from the community would feel as welcome as the hotel guests.” Hamilton’s notable menu items include appetizers such as: burrata with tomato, basil, cucumber and toast; tuna tartar with crispy rice and spicy tuna; hamachi with serrano ponzu; and oysters on the half shell. Entrees feature salmon; fish and chips; Sunday roast for two; vegan mushroom and lentil spaghetti; filet; and hanger steak. For the design of Hamilton’s interior and menu, the team leaned on Groundswell Design Group with Swiss Cottage Designs for its brand identity. “The working dynamic – from the style and features inside Hamilton’s to our crafted menu –has been an incredible collaboration between Chickpea Hospitality and Oxford,” said Eid. Hamilton’s accommodates 93 guests in its dining room and bar, and 38 on its ground floor outdoor terrace along Michigan Avenue, allowing guests to enjoy the modern, urban aesthetic of Corktown. The Godfrey Hotel Detroit also features an indoor-outdoor lounge (I|O Rooftop) with expansive views of downtown Detroit and Corktown that serves craft cocktails and bites as well as a 5,100 square foot ballroom that will accommodate events of more than 300 guests and a welcoming hotel lobby bar for guests and locals. 1401 Michigan Avenue, Detroit
