New chapter for Eddystone Hotel
The team behind Four Man Ladder Management has announced that they have been selected by Olympia Development of Michigan to operate an all-new dining concept in the former Eddystone Hotel in Detroit. The Four Man Ladder team owns and operates Grey Ghost and Second Best on Watson Street in Midtown. The operation includes Chefs John Vermiglio and Joe Giacomino, along with Will Lee (Beverage Director) and Michael Gray (Director of Operations). Chef John Vermiglio commented on his team’s excitement to embark on another venture with Olympia Development. “As we look to continue the expansion of our family of restaurants, the Eddystone concept immediately stood out to us as a great opportunity given the beautiful architecture of the building and the location within The District Detroit. We are looking forward to starting construction and sharing more details as we progress,” said Vermiglio. Restoration of the historic Eddystone continues to move swiftly and will bring 92 apartments with 20 percent set aside as affordable units, just steps from Little Caesars Arena. The 5,000 square foot restaurant will comprise 85 seats split between the dining room, bar and lounge. Projected grand opening is spring of 2022. The Eddystone is located at the corner of Sproat Street & Park Avenue, Detroit.
