Over and out

It was short, but for those who had the opportunity to dine there, it was sweet. For those looking to visit Chapman House, 311 Walnut Boulevard in Rochester, for brunch or dinner this summer, they’ll have to look elsewhere. In May, the Rochester restaurant announced on their Facebook page they would be undergoing “improvements and changes” and “putting our regular dinner and brunch services on hold, at least through the end of summer.” For now, they will be focusing only on private events, curated dining, and imbibing experiences.

Metro Intelligencer is a monthly column devoted to news stories, tidbits and gossip items about what's happening on the restaurant scene in the metro Detroit area. Metro intelligencer is reported/created each month by Dana Casadei who can be reached at with news items or tips, on or off the record.
