HFCC’s Chef de Cuisine Joseph E. Cosenze said that the restaurant has changed a lot over the last nine months.

“We took the look and feel of the dining room and made it more casual; it’s fine dining in a casual atmosphere, which is a trend in Metro-Detroit,” Cosenze said. “Our food is produced at a high level of quality. Each dish is prepared a la minute – which means right that minute – by students and is served by students under the guidance by chef instructors. It’s 100 percent run by students.”

Fifty-One O One will begin taking reservations Friday, Sept 5. For more information and to make reservations, please call 313-206-5101.
