Eastern Market restaurant Antietam will close in March


  • Antietam/Facebook

Detroit's Antietam will close on March 31. The French-inspired restaurant — which sits on Gratiot near the Eastern Market and shares a block wth Trinosophes, Gather, and others — made the announcement on its Facebook page yesterday:
The last 5 years have been a tremendously rewarding experience during the creation and execution of Antietam.
I could not have more respect for all of my staff and Chef Seth High …. simply incomparable.
We will be serving dinner though March 31st.
At which point Antietam will become a memory. 
The very reason it was created.
In the Spring the building will be sold to give way to greater creative challenges.
Thank you to everyone for bringing this vision to completion.

Owner Greg Holm previously worked as a photographer in New York City before moving to Detroit — where he grew up — to open Antietam in 2013. It closed in July 2014 following the resignation of the chef, bartender, and some staff, but reopened in November of that year.
