Thank you, Kesha Wilson, for introducing me to one of my favorite restaurants in Detroit, Empire Kitchen and Cocktail. Empire is a fairly new restaurant located in Detroit’s Brush Park neighborhood, across the street from the new Little Ceasers Arena. I am obsessed with the atmosphere and unique design.
Empire is an American Bistro. They offer a wide range of foods that would please everyone.They offer a dinner, weekend brunch, cocktail, and happy hour menu. I have not had the opportunity to explore their brunch menu, but the options look delicious! Now, I have had the opportunity to explore the dinner, cocktail, and happy hour menus and after my first taste, I couldn’t resist.
My favorite drink is the Punch-Drunk Love. For those that do not like cognac, PLEASE do not like the Remy Martin steer you away from trying this drink. I, too, do not like cognac; however, this is my go to drink. The Rose Liquor and lemon curve the cognacs robust taste. The cognac also adds a unique flavor to the drink, creating a unique delicious drink. I highly suggest checking this one out!
If I am going for just drinks and apps, these are my favorite go to Small Plates: 1. Wings – Crispy Dry Rub 2. Brussels Sprouts 3. French Fries 4. Mac and Cheese
I typically stick to my go to small plates rather than grabbing an entrée because I attend to order too much… however, my favorite entrées are: Empire Burger, Spicy Chicken Sandwich, and Empire Pizza. Everything I have tried here tastes wonderful! I am sure whatever you decide to try will be amazing!
During the current Stay At Home Order, they are currently ONLY doing Delivery and Takeout only. Contact them for hours and protocols [313-315-3131].
If you do not live close to Detroit, I would highly suggest adding this place to your list to check out once we are able to get back to reality. You won’t regret it!
NOTE: I highly suggest making reservations for parties larger than 2!
Hope you enjoy! 🍴
Love, Britt 🌺
