Illuminating Detroit

Birmingham restaurateurs Norm and Bonnie LePage and their son and daughter-in-law, Scott and Susanne LePage, of Big Rock Chophouse and Griffin Claw Brewing Company fame, have ventured south for their newest venture, Lumen Detroit, 1903 Grand River in Detroit, anchoring the new Beacon Park, the new public space developed by DTE. The 4,000 square foot restaurant, which will open the first week of April, offers 125 seats indoors, and another 150 on a flexible outdoor patio. A grand outdoor staircase leads to the sustainable green rooftop space with another 45 seats – and panoramic views of the park and city skyline. Lumen’s creative menu features eclectic American fare, with everything from classic steak and frites and mussels three ways to chicken wings with everything bagel seasonings, crab cakes, and mac & cheese, salads, soups, entrees and snacks. “We’re really looking forward to the opening of Lumen Detroit and the restaurant aims to be a vibrant new space for the surrounding neighborhood and a gathering place for families enjoying all the events, activities and attractions the city offers,” said Norm LePage. “There are so many great things happening right now and we are so glad to be part of the Detroit restaurant scene. We’re really hoping to provide a dining experience unlike anything in the city.”
