Contemporary American
Chic yet approachable, historic while tastefully modern. The Apparatus Room bridges the old and the new, offering iconic New American cuisine by Chef Rece Hogerheide rooted in Midwestern ingredients, thoughtfully crafted cocktails, and esoteric wines. By blending a three-meal restaurant, elevated dinner service with signature touches, and a world class hotel bar, the Apparatus Room welcomes locals and travels alike to sip, stay, and enjoy one of Detroit’s signature restaurants. Our cocktail program is classically focused with inspiration drawn from the history of the building and the city itself. The ingredients may be familiar and the presentation simple and classic, though each cocktail has a deeper story to tell for those who have time to listen. Sommelier Liz Martinez showcases the diversity of both Old World & New World wines, and the regions are separated as such on the menu. Winemakers that take pride in sustainable, environmental practices are always on the top of our mind.

    The not so good: Main menu has 6 items but 2 were NOT available and 2 of the 4 left were Pork. Server either had a terrible cold or severe allergies. Seating was cramped, it was impossible to have a private conversation. The good: the interior design is fabulous, the bar outstanding, the 14-year sourdough is great (the harissa butter is great), the citrus soup an experience, and the Porchetta was substantial.

    We went for our anniversary and Would have liked to have a table alone, we sat in between 2 other parties but it worked out as the other 2 parties left and done with their meals about 1/2 hour later so all was good

    I think the best thing I had was the French fries from the bar menu. I was not impressed with the quality of the food

    Everything was perfect! Our server Michael was great and personable. Manager and Chef both came out to see how our food and service was. It's pricey but worth it. Will definitely be going back.
