The transformation of the Fenton Fire Hall resulted in “a delicious new place to dine, both for its unusual setting and its casual, creative, well-executed food.”

The wait for the Fenton Fire Hall restaurant to open was worth the wait, Detroit Free Press restaurant critic Sylvia Rector wrote in a review detailing the transformation of the 75-year-old building into a palate-pleasing restaurant.

The restaurant opened in December after a renovation that took about a year and one-half, “but the results were well worth the wait,” Rector wrote. “Owner Curt Catallo and company have created a delicious new place to dine, both for its unusual setting and its casual, creative, well-executed food.”

She took note of creative upcycling – hoses once used to fight fires have been repurposed as light fixtures and reproductions of vintage fire department records are used as wallpaper outside the kitchen – and raved about the menu created by executive chef Aaron Cozadd and chef de cuisine John Wentworth. For her favorites, read the full review on the Detroit Free Press.
