Foodservice Designers: Great Lakes Culinary Designs, Southfield, Mich. Architect: Macintosh Poris, Birmingham, Mich. General Contractor: Milad Zoorab, Detroit With the singular goal of bringing a world-class steakhouse to De- troit, the project team set about creating an exceptional restaurant experience. Modern elements, like an open kitchen and a full-service butcher shop, were placed alongside historic building elements, like a 100-year-old marble staircase. The judges thought the entire concept represented a fresh approach, particularly in bringing the kitchen into the dining room. "They brought energy with the kitchen and the staging of a butcher shop instead of a bar, which is where you'd usually expect the energy to come from," said the judges. "It's hard to stand out in this category, but they did it."
