James Beard Award-winning chef and restaurateur Andrew Carmellini will open an Italian restaurant called San Morello in the soon-to-open Shinola Hotel.

His New York-based NoHo Hospitality Group is also planning a beer hall and craft cocktail bar in the 130-room boutique hotel, which is targeting a  December launch at Woodward and Grand River avenues.



The 3,700-square-foot San Morello will be an "urban Italian neighborhood restaurant," Crain's reports, while Brakeman — a beer hall focused on Midwest beers and bar games — will occupy another 5,500 square feet.

The 800-square-foot Evening Bar will be a Detroit outpost of the NoHo-operated New York City craft cocktail and small plates concept of the same name.

Crain's reports that NoHo also runs Italian tavern Locanda Verde in actor Robert DeNiro's Greenwich Hotel in New York City, The Dutch in New York and Miami Beach, and Lafayette Grand Café & Bakery in New York.
