Iconic Detroit dining landmark reopens for business

DETROIT (WXYZ) - Caucus Club, a fine dining restaurant in Detroit that was open from 1952-2012 and famously gave Barbra Streisand her start as a lounge singer, has now been remodeled and revitalized under new ownership.

The 6,000 square-foot restaurant (150 W Congress St., Detroit, MI 48226), housed in the historic Penobscot Building, reopened its doors on Friday, May 12, 2017, with a sophisticated and polished 'club' atmosphere, decorated in an Art Deco style and seating for 155 diners. The New Bullshot, a reimagined version of the original Bullshot drink invented at Caucus Club in the 1950s, is now being served.

The new Caucus Club menu features dry-aged steaks, scallops, pan-seared halibut and lake perch and a cheese-stuffed burger that pays homage to a dish served at the original Caucus Club. Bread will be baked freshly daily and desserts will include seasonal panna cotta, homemade cheesecakes, tiramisu, and crème brulee.
