Lady of The House opens next week in Corktown


  • LOH/Facebook
Lady Of The House, the long-awaited restaurant of chef Kate Williams, opens next week in Corktown's former St. CeCe's space.

The soft opening is today, and the Detroit News reports that the former Republic, Parks & Rec, and Rodin chef will be joined by sous chef Larissa Popa, who also worked in Republic's kitchen. Christian Stachel, who previously worked at Wright & Company, is LOH's beverage director and general manager

According to its website, Williams will specialize in "nose to tail, whole animal preservation and utilization, as well as highlighting local farms. Williams is also focusing on #uglyfood, which is about minimizing food waste on farms in an effort to feed more people and promote more hungry folks to grow their own food."

The space seats around 65 and will have nods to Williams’ Irish-American heritage. Once open, the restaurant's hours will be Wed. through Sun. from 4:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. The bar is open until 2 a.m., and brunch will be available in the fall.
