Model D TV: The Whitney

The 1894 mansion on Woodward that houses Whitney is as elegant and emblematic of old Detroit as it gets. Inside, it oozes ambiance — giant Tiffany windows, intricate woodwork, etc.

Under new ownership, the restaurant is getting a facelift, raves from critics and, as Bud Liebler puts it, "unstuffed." The new attitude, restoration and revamped menu aim to keep this place among the city's most treasured fine dining establishments for more generations.

The Whitney is at 4421 Woodward. Go to for more info.

Check out what Liebler has in store for the place in Model D TV producer/director Tom Hendrickson's latest offering. The music is courtesy of Detroit's The Come Ons.
