Gather Detroit – an Eastern Market restaurant specializing in local foods that are cooked above a wood-burning grill – will reopen to the public on Friday, its owners tell Metro Times.

The restaurant abruptly closed last month, and though diners will find a new menu when it reopens, the concept will remain the same.

Co-owners Kyle Hunt and Leah Hunt opened the restaurant in May along with chef Nate Vogeli, who was not a partner. Kyle Hunt tells Metro Times that Vogeli left the restaurant abruptly, but on good terms.

Jessie Patuano, a former chef at The Root and Torino, is now in Gather's kitchen. Hunt says the menu received "a complete overhaul" and to expect more of a focus on seasonality, local sourcing, and veggies, as Patuano brings strong relationships with local farmers.

Among those partnerships are Keep Growing Detroit, Grow Eastern Market, Farm Field Table, Coriander, Fairway Packing, Avalon, Calder Dairy, Cherry Capital, Fortune Fish, R Hirt, Werp Farms, and Fluffy Bottom Farms.

"Still an approachable neighborhood spot with thoughtful dishes and reasonable prices," Hunt tells us.

Our food critic, Jane Slaughter, praised the 34-seat restaurant in her July review. We also found the restaurant's wings to be among the city's best.
