Fort Street Galley Mixes High Brow Food with Low Brow Mess Hall Seating

Detroit has always been known for its cars and music, but over the last decade we have also made a name for ourselves within the food community. Our dining scene has exploded and all sorts of new cuisines and ideas are being embraced by Detroiters. One of the latest trends to come to the Motor City is the concept of a restaurant accelerator. Basically, it's a shared space where a small start up idea can either blossom or fail.

After a careful selection process, four businesses were given the chance to launch their restaurants inside the Fort Street Galley incubator to see if they can make it work. The goal for each businesses is to work out their kinks and perfect what they do so that they can open their own brick and mortar space after their time with the galley. This gives diners opportunity to try a lot of new things in one space without breaking the bank. The food is high quality and interesting, but it served up inside what is essentially a modern mess hall that includes a full bar complete with its own menu of creative one of a kind cocktails that were curated by Detroit drink creator Marlowe.
The dining hall like space seats around 250 people at a time and the room features art from local creators like Camera Jesus. The first four restaurants care called Allenby, Isla, Lucky's BBQ, and Pursue. You can sample their menus and learn more about each concept by using the links below. 
The restaurants are open from 11 a.m. until 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. until 10 p.m. on Friday, 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. on Saturday, and 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. on Sunday. The bar is open a bit later on the weekends. The restaurants are supposed to switch out every 12 to 14 months. So, if you don't like what you find this time, come back in a year and you might find something completely different! We love that you can pop in, grab some food and grab a seat, no lines, no waiting, no hassles.
