Across from Comerica Park, there’s a restaurant that is perfect for game day!

With a menu including Detroit-style pizzas, sandwiches, and shareables

If you are headed downtown for the game, either today or sometime in the future, and you want to know where to eat. Well, we found a spot that is right across from Comerica Park and it’s from the same people that brought you the Union, Vinsetta Garage, and Gran Castor.

It’s called the Union Assembly and features three floors of dining with spectacular views of the ballpark. While generally, the Union Joints take over buildings with a past, like an old garage or church, this is the first time Curt Catallo and Ann Stevenson took on a new build.

Stevenson is the restaurant’s designer, and she takes a lot of inspiration from the building, so since this place was a blank canvas, she took her inspiration from its location. Union Assembly is at the center of the entertainment district surrounded by the Fox Theater, Comerica Park, and The Fillmore, so they wanted the space to be somewhere to keep you entertained as well.

You can choose your own dining experience with their three floors of seating, The first floor is very lively with the bar, TVs, and a floating DJ booth. The mezzanine is more intimate, perfect for a date night, and the third level offers spectacular views of the city with a long bar, covered patio, and a private dining room.

All along the way, you’ll spot little details that celebrate the Motor City, like their custom wallpaper with Detroit motifs, a picture of the Temptations, and a photo booth inspired by the Boblo Boats.

As for the food, it’s all about comfort. Cattalo describes it as “grandma’s cooking” if Grandma was from Detroit. They have Detroit-style pizzas, something new to the Union Joints, including a coney pizza topped with hot dogs, coney sauce, fresh onions, and mustard. Also on the menu is a wide range of sandwiches including The Weck, a specialty of Upstate New York with a house made bun topped with caraway seeds and flaky sea salt, stuffed with roasted turkey and horseradish sauce with some turkey jus to dip it in. Perfect for a party, they also have a lot of shareables like their tri-pepper wings, and of course, you can still get the famous Union Mac and Cheese.

Union Assembly is located at 2131 Woodward Avenue in Downtown Detroit.
