Fusing Art with Fine Dining at Asaysia Plates to Share

A new, small-plate dining experience is coming to downtown Detroit this week. 

Asaysia Plates to Share is set to open its doors for the first time on Brush St. between Gratiot Avenue and Madison Street on Thursday, March 22.

Highlighting the history and style of Detroit in a casual, polished and relaxed atmosphere, the restaurant will include an open kitchen serving locally sourced, scratch-made pizza and plates to share. The 5,000-square-foot restaurant will seat 150, including at a reservations-only chef's table. Through an exclusive partnership with the Detroit Institute of Arts, the restaurant will feature renowned artist Diego Rivera's Detroit industry murals, showcasing the beginning backbone of Detroit. 

Executive Chef Larry Middlebrooks and Sommelier Filippo  Morandi stopped by the Fox2 Kitchen with a taste of what they'll offer on the menu starting this week. Watch the video and click here for more information, including the menu.
