In 1894 “The Whitney” became home to the family of lumber baron, David Whitney Jr., the wealthiest man in Detroit at the time.
Today this iconic turn of the century, romanesque revival mansion turned restaurant retains all of its charm and refinement while appealing to contemporary tastes. You will find award-winning cuisine, unique presentation and flavors to never be forgotten.More About Us
Metro Detroit is ripe with opportunities for outdoor drinking and dining. Arguably, though, none is better than the gardens at the Whitney.
All the splendid houses which have been erected before and which adorn the broad avenue of town (Woodward) are fairly eclipsed, and the new home enjoys the distinction of being the most pretentious modern home in the state and one of the most elaborate houses in the West.
The stunning location makes for a sophisticated dining experience, while the private dining rooms provide add to the intimate ambience.
Magnificent Whitney continues its great dining glory...
The Whitney offers award-winning cuisine that is elegantly American. Our unpretentious wine cellar can provide the ideal libation to compliment any of tantalizing entrées from the land, sea or garden. Enjoy some of the world's finest dishes prepared by master chefs.
