THE PETERBORO’S OPENING REVIVES DETROIT’S CHINATOWN

THE PETERBORO’S OPENING REVIVES DETROIT’S CHINATOWN

The Peterboro, a new restaurant to open in Detroit’s Chinatown/Cass Corridor, plans to open March 17 with their Asian-inspired menu.

The space will open their doors at 420 Peterboro and be able to seat nearly 80 people after a series of private soft openings and much preparation.

The Detroit Optimists Society, the group behind The Sugar House, Café 78, Honest John’s and Wright & Company, plan to debut The Peterboro’s menu with the leadership of chef Brion Wong. Wong and the team created the menu after combining his 9 years of professional cooking experience, childhood memories and a mix of nostalgia. Wong has worked with chefs Doron Wong, Susur Lee, Alex Guarnaschelli, Gray Kunz and more to get to where he is today.

The drink menu features rotating cocktail specials, including sake, sherry, and of course, a variety of beers and wines. The latest cocktails on the menu include The Red Dragon, made with arrack, campari, beet and carrot, and C.R.E.A.M., made with bourbon, rice and almond milk, cinnamon syrup and bitters.

The cuisine includes both small and large plates, including small plates of Mushroom Salad (wild mushroom saute, yuzu vinaigrette), Fish Croquette (hot Chinese mustard sauce), Salt and Pepper Shrimp (head on, secret spice mix, jalapeno confit) and more.

The Peterboro is slated to have a schedule of 4 p.m. to midnight Sunday through Thursday and 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. Friday through Saturday.

Stop in at 420 Peterboro, visit their newly published website at thepeterboro.com and keep in touch with them on social at The Peterboro on Facebook and Instagram.
