In the course of history, each city and era had a place where interesting people would gather. These saloons, pubs, bistros, and bars forever became places were history was made. London, St. Petersburg, Paris, Warsaw... Liberal arts pioneers, forward thinkers, creatives, musicians and writers would gather over food and drinks to exchange ideas, debate, drink, and enjoy. If you are one of these people and if your time is now, John D is your place.

Menu and wine list

Thank you so much for making me a part of the unforgettable culinary adventure! I cant think of another interior  in Metro Detroit that feels more cosmopolitan than that of John D. Succulent food, caring staff, and New York-style atmosphere - John D is a true find!

After years of being a patron of the former establishment I was needless to say, overwhelmed by the New John Ds!  The décor, food, service, wine and overall ambience is wonderful.  I look forward to summer evenings on the patio and live music.  Bravo Eddie!
