Love Conquers All…

Cupid’s arrow has sliced through the tough economic air in Detroit to sell out the city’s most romantic restaurant, The Whitney, for Valentine’s Day.

But don’t worry; reservations are still available for the special Valentine’s dinner for Friday, February 13 and for Valentine’s Day weekend Sunday Brunch with its famous “bottomless mimosa” February 15. Reservations are recommended.

But wait there’s more…Valentine’s Day wouldn’t be complete without sweets. The Whitney will feature two signature heart shaped desserts: Detroit Opera Cake -- layers of almond cake, coffee butter-cream and chocolate ganache and The Whitney Carrot Cake -- carrot cake filled with white chocolate mousse, homemade graham crackers and carrot sorbet. There promises to be something for everyone’s sweet tooth.

Back By Popular Demand!

Its official – due to popular demand and rave reviews The Whitney will continue to serve the Obama menu through the month of February! The exclusive lunch menu will continue to celebrate our new President Barack Obama and now Black History month. The Obama menu has items ranging from $4 to $12 with 20 percent of every meal contributed to the Capuchin Soup Kitchen in Detroit. Select items will also be available on The Whitney’s dinner menu.

A crowd favorite and anchoring the menu is the Obama family chili recipe that he serves to his own family, served over white rice with grated cheddar cheese, onions and sour cream. Other items on the special menu include Southern Fried Chicken served with macaroni and cheese and a side of broccoli; Shrimp and Grits; Obama’s favorite burger with avocado; and an Oreo Cookie Cheesecake, reportedly the President’s favorite dessert and may I add- deeeeeelicous! A beverage of choice is another Obama favorite, Black Forest Berry Honest tea.

Sunday Brunch with a Twist!

As the new Obama Administration takes over in Washington, Detroit, even more than the rest of the country, is experiencing extraordinarily difficult times and it’s important that we all pull together and help each other. The Whitney is offering neighborhood churches an opportunity for a first class social event that will bring parishioners together as a family while at the same time raising funds for their church.

The proposal is to offer a Sunday (excluding Easter and Mother’s Day) where the parishioners can enjoy The Whitney’s Signature Sunday Brunch at our regular rate of $38 per person ($15 for children 10 and under) with a portion of all proceeds being returned to the church. The Whitney offers outstanding food and great service in the most elegant surroundings in Detroit. Sunday brunches are our most popular activity and would offer the church an opportunity for personal social time with members of the congregation.

Valentine’s Day at The Whitney

Enjoy an award winning dinner on Valentine’s Day with the one you love.

The Whitney will be offering a special three course menu which includes a premium bottle of champagne with strawberries at your table for $75 per person, plus tax and gratuity.

Be sure to join us after dinner on the Third Floor at the Ghost Bar, with Music by DJ Matt A.

No cover. For dinner reservations please call 313-832-5700.
