Get to know your neighborhood pub
In December 2006 the corner of Trumbull and Merrick was just another bleak and blighted eyesore, littered with trash, broken bottles and graffiti. In a city so full of such corners it didn’t draw much attention. It took some vision, and possibly a bit of insanity, to see through all the faults and recognize the potential cornerstone that could anchor our beautiful Woodbridge neighborhood for years to come.
After being virtually abandoned for twenty five years, the building was rough to say the least. I lovingly restored it using salvaged materials everywhere possible. The larger than life bar is constructed from 1890s Oak, salvaged from the stairs and vestibule of a Saginaw, MI church. The back bar from doors and trim taken from a Saline, MI farmhouse slated for demolition. The beautiful hand carved 1906 Oak “Butcher Boy” refrigerator was salvaged from an old butcher shop on Lumpkin in Hamtramck and converted into the men’s bathroom. These repurposed items represent in many ways my feelings about Detroit. Being old, they reflect the historic character of the homes in the Woodbridge neighborhood and having been given new life, they symbolize the rebirth that Detroit is gradually realizing.
At Woodbridge Pub it is all about being local. Our food is primarily grown or sourced within five miles of our restaurant. We work with a handful of urban farmers and a large number of local purveyors to get the freshest and most local ingredients. All of our dishes are hand crafted daily with these fresh high quality local ingredients. Because we buy so local, our menus change with every season. Our creative chefs capture the flavors and essence of each of the four seasons in unique entrees that will entice your taste buds and go easy on your pocket book.
We take great care in preparing delicious hand crafted fresh foods, offering an exceptional selection of over eighty beers and wines from across Michigan and around the world, and providing a comfortable atmosphere complimented by friendly and knowledgeable staff. We look forward to seeing you soon!
