An eight-seat tasting menu restaurant planned by chef Garrett Lipar is expected to open in downtown Detroit's Siren Hotel near the end of January, Eater reports

Lipar – a two-time semi-finalist in the James Beard Foundation's Rising Star Chef of the Year category – partly made his name on his tasting menu at the now-closed Torino in Ferndale. The concept is one of seven food and beverage spots in the hotel, which will likely open in early January in the newly renovated Wurlitzer Building.

Eater also reports that Gold Cash Gold bartender Marlowe Johnson may take over a craft cocktail bar called the Candy Bar that's planned for the hotel.
