Campus Martius Park will see a brand new restaurant opening up this summer in the space currently occupied by Fountain Bistro.

According to Detroit 300 Conservancy, Fountain Bistro, which has been open since 2010, will close.

 “Fountain Bistro has been a very popular dining and special gathering place in the heart of the city,” said Robert Gregory, president, Detroit 300 Conservancy. “With its stunning city and park views, residents, downtown workers and visitors from the region and afar have made it one of the must see places to visit in Detroit. We are pleased and excited that as downtown Detroit’s development accelerates, the dining options in the park for all visitors will not only keep pace, but will be enhanced with the new restaurant and the other related food and beverage outlets.”

The new restaurant will be owned by 800 Parc, LLC, which is a joint venture between Zaid Elia and The Elia Group and Matthew Shiffman of Centerpoint Ventures.

It will undergo several months of renovations to get ready for the opening, including a new interior design, new window system, bar, and the permanent enclosure of the current outside patio.
