While preparing for the official unveiling of the restoration efforts at 1 Broad St., and conversion to a restaurant, chef Kevin Getzewich (formerly of Indaco and The Macintosh) has honed a menu of something a little different for the South of Broad set — yet still approachable. The restaurant near Waterfront Park, Normandy at 1 Broad, or One Broad Street, or 1Broad, or The Room — co-owners Mike Ray and Ben Johnson don’t really play by conventional branding rules — should be ready to open for breakfast and lunch very soon.
The daytime menu has a little something for everyone. There’s a $5 scrapple sandwich, a morning crispy rice bowl, shakshuka, Detroit pizza, barbacoa tacos, carbonara, a cold fried chicken sandwich, and so much more.
In addition to Getzewich in the kitchen, former 167 Raw chef Sean Rieflin has joined the group.
Take a look here for the breakfast and lunch menus and a few pictures of the dining room restored to its original floors, paint color, and crown molding. The building was originally built as a bank.
UPDATE: One Broad Street will unlock the doors on Sunday, November 26.
