Detroit, MI – MOCAD is pleased to announce that Dave Kwiatkowski (owner of The Sugar House, Wright & Company) and Marc Djozlija (formerly of Wolfgang Puck, co-owner of Wright & Company) will open a new café and bar at MOCAD. Café 78 will open to the public February 6, 2015 in conjunction with MOCAD’s winter exhibitions.
Café 78 is located inside MOCAD, which was built as an auto dealership. Café 78 recalls the dealers' "Rule of 78s" to calculate interest. Designed by Daniel Moskop of Dan Huffman Architecture, the 4,800-square-foot space will allow seating for 179 people and feature a 14-foot bar, as well as table seating. Plywood paneling and phenolic coated plywood create a common material language for the new café, which adds warmth to the industrial aesthetic of the space. Using minimal detailing and a simple material pallet the design is a clean and thoughtful addition to the space. The existing 14’ glass garage door provides natural light and creates a connection to the streetscape.
Café 78 will operate beyond MOCAD’s Museum hours with coffee and breakfast service starting at 8am and will feature Anthology coffee and pastries from Pinwheel Bakery in Ferndale. At 11am the menu will transition from breakfast to lunch and dinner service with a menu of soups, salads, and sandwiches. In addition the menu features a full bar with craft cocktails and the popular bar snack spiced cashews.
Bartenders trained at both Wright & Company and The Sugar House will serve a selection of beers, wines, and craft cocktails inspired by artwork in the Museum. “We are extremely excited to partner with MOCAD, and feel Café 78 will both enhance the museum experience and also draw a new crowd that possibly wouldn’t have visited the museum otherwise," says Dave Kwiatkowski, owner of The Sugar House and co-owner of Wright & Company.
"We are delighted to partner with Café 78," said Elysia Borowy-Reeder, MOCAD’s Executive Director. “Their excellent, creative and internationally-inspired food and beverages and premiere service standards are a great match for the Museum, where we want to provide memorable experiences for our visitors and Members, whether they enjoy a lunch or light snack during a visit to the Museum, or an elegant catered dinner at a private evening affair."
