Behind the Scenes with Jeremy Sasson

Old World, Meets New World at Prime + Proper in Capitol Park

Restaurateur, Jeremy Sasson, wanted to create something new after successfully opening Townhouse Detroit in 2015. A three year project, Prime + Proper brings to life the dining experience Jeremy desired for himself but couldn’t find in the city. The immaculately designed space is carefully curated to represent the Prime + Proper brand and draws on art deco and mid-century modern design elements. Jeremy has created a new-level dining experience that introduces guests to food in a bygone way.

“Fifty years ago you bought your meat from the neighborhood butcher. You had a relationship with him and knew where your food was coming from. We want to bring that back.”

Prime + Proper is more than a steakhouse, it is also a butcher shop where you can walk in at any time and purchase raw meat to go. It’s a specialty service that fits in well in the burgeoning micro neighborhood. Capitol Park boasts a growing number of residential and commercial tenants and Jeremy looks forward to welcoming both young professionals and the seasoned business executives to the restaurant. Down the road, frequent guests of Prime + Proper can look forward to an exclusive invitation to the downstairs bar, Cash Only. In the meantime, make your reservations to Detroit’s newest hot spot.
