The Easter Bunny Comes to MidTown

The Easter Bunny will be making a special stop at The Whitney on Easter Sunday (April 4) and will be digging through his Easter basket to hand out candy to all the boys and girls who grace the halls of the iconic restaurant.

Easter Brunch, one of The Whitney’s signature offerings, will be available by reservation from 10:30am through 3:00pm. Guests will enjoy two carving stations (ham and roast beef), omelets, salmon, chicken, shrimp cocktail, grits, bacon, a salad station, and pastries galore while listening to the melodies of a live pianist in the Great Hall.

Adults are $32 per person; kids between the ages of 7 and 12 are $12.95, and children six and under are FREE. And don’t forget the price includes The Whitney’s famous “bottomless mimosas” (for adults 21 and over).

Flowers are Taking Bloom at The Whitney

Even though spring is less than 24 hours away (tomorrow at 1:32pm), The Whitney already has flowers taking bloom. BIG flowers. With some creative help from The Parade Company (the same crew that created the Whitney’s Valentine’s Day heart) The Whitney now has a handful of gorgeous yellow and red tulips in its front yard- SEVEN FOOT TALL tulips to be exact!

“Soon after we showcased the heart for Valentine’s Day we realized that we needed to start thinking of something for spring. An Easter bunny…no; an umbrella for April’s showers…no; May’s flowers…YES! This city and everyone in it needs some sign of spring and sunshine,” said proprietor Bud Liebler. “So that’s exactly what we’re giving them…a reason to smile when they stop in or pass by The Whitney and take a gander at those gorgeous big tulips. Spring is here. That means The Whitney gardens can’t be far behind.”

St. Patrick’s Day Comes to The Whitney!

Your name doesn’t have to start with an “O” or a “Mc” and you don’t have to be wearin’ a green shamrock in your hair to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at The Whitney. For the first time ever, The Whitney, Detroit’s iconic Midtown restaurant, will officially celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with four days of special Irish dishes on its menu and live Irish music inside the Woodward Avenue mansion each evening.

From March 17 through March 20, The Whitney’s lunch and dinner menus will feature several selections of traditional Irish cuisine, each with a special Whitney twist. The Whitney’s signature menu items will also be available. Irish coffee, Irish beers and classic Irish Black and Tans with Guinness and Bass Ale will also be offered.
