Restaurant to serve up southern and Mexican inspired fare at historic building
in New Center area.
Southfield, Mich.-based Farbman Group, a leading full-service real estate company, announced the recent opening of The Zenith, a new southern and Mexican cuisine restaurant on the first floor of the Fisher Building in the heart of the New Center area. Andrew V. Farbman, CEO of Farbman Group, made the announcement.
For East Coast transplants and restaurateurs Robert and Melissa Jasper, The Zenith is a departure from the diner fare they’ve served at their last two restaurant concepts, and an ambitious new venture in Detroit, the city they fell in love with when a spontaneous trip launched a life-changing move.
The Zenith will serve up innovative takes on traditional fare and offer both a quick service build-your-own-lunch menu and more complex sit-down dishes, all offered in an eclectic vintage décor setting. Once the Jaspers have acquired a liquor license – anticipated for later this summer – they plan to launch a new drink menu as well.
“We are thrilled to welcome this modern and exciting new restaurant concept to the Fisher Building,” Farbman said. “Farbman Group has a more than 35 year history of investing in Michigan and Detroit, and we believe that The Zenith will perfectly compliment the continued progress that is now taking place in the vibrant New Center area.”
Constructed in 1928, the historic Fisher Building has long been a Detroit landmark, located at Second Avenue and West Grand Boulevard in the New Center area. The Zenith occupies a 16,000-square-foot space, which has a 225-seat capacity. The space also includes a private room for 12.
