Restaurateur Todd Stern Opens New Concept for Popular Small Plates in Legendary Downtown Detroit Building

Small Plates Express To Provide Grab and Go Lunch Fare From First National Building On Campus Martius Park

 

DETROIT -- Detroit Restaurateur Todd Stern chose one of Detroit's legendary buildings to debut a new carry-out concept for his popular tapas restaurant, Small Plates. Small Plates Express, which offers a lunchtime menu of signature dishes and sophisticated takes on traditional offerings, opened Feb. 8, 2008 in the historic First National Building.

Stern's first Small Plates restaurant quickly became a favored fixture in Detroit's theatre district when it opened in 2002. Stern opened a second location in Royal Oak last year. Small Plates Express will provide the same friendly service and eclectic cuisine in a fun, casual and convenient setting, Stern said.

"We're thrilled to bring this new concept to the legendary Albert Kahn- designed First National Building," Stern said. "Not only will it give us a presence near downtown Detroit's heart at Campus Martius Park, but will put us at the center of exciting new development activity," he said.

"We believe this delightful concept of grab-and-go fare will add culinary excitement to the center of daytime activity in downtown Detroit," Stern said.

The new location will also serve as the official launching ground for Small Plates catering operations. Small Plates took on limited catering engagements from its other restaurants, Stern said. "But our new downtown location gives us a perfect platform to launch catering as a full and unique operation."

Small Plates is best known for its eclectic menu of savory Small Plates dishes such as Asian lettuce wraps or pan-seared scallops. Similar offerings, plus gourmet sandwiches such as chicken caesar wraps with hand-cut potato chips along with a variety of salads, tacos and hand-made-from-scratch desserts will be offered at Small Plates Express for prices ranging from $4 to $8.

"Small Plates Express is a wonderful addition to the First National Building and is representative of the excellent amenities that are available just steps away in Detroit," said Fred Schwark, Regional Manager of the Downtown Collection, a group of three historic downtown buildings in Detroit owned by the Northern Group, Inc., a privately held, New York-based real- estate investment firm.

The Downtown Collection consists of: The First National Building located at 660 Woodward Avenue, The Penobscot Building located at 645 Griswold and Cadillac Tower, located at 65 Cadillac Square. All three buildings are on or within a block of Campus Martius Park.

In addition to The Downtown Collection, the Northern Group, Inc. owns Alden Park Towers, a historic group of three riverfront apartment buildings in Detroit, and the Mies van der Rohe-designed Lafayette Towers apartment buildings in Lafayette Park.

The Northern Group in January added to its substantial investment in Detroit with the announcement of its iconic $150 million living, dining, shopping and entertainment complex called "Cadillac Centre" on Campus Martius Park. Cadillac Centre will occupy the entire Monroe Block with a connection to the Cadillac Tower.

The Northern Group was established more then 20 years ago by principals committed to creatively readapting commercial and residential real estate within urban areas. The Northern Group is responsible for transforming landmark buildings and neighborhoods by sensitive rehabilitation, tastefully blending the existing architecture with new infrastructure, creating vibrant homes and workplaces.

All of The Downtown Collection buildings offer attractive options for businesses and organizations with convenient locations, comprehensive amenities, multiple services and 24-hour-security. In 2007, The Downtown Collection signed an impressive list of new and expanding tenants totaling nearly 350,000 square feet.
