Jim Brady's Detroit


To create the new Jim Brady’s Detroit, ROSSETTI collaborated with the grandson of restaurateur “Diamond” Jim Brady to completely transform the former Oxford Inn in Royal Oak into a classy, retro-inspired space with modern touches. This American-style restaurant offers a contemporary interpretation of the original Diamond Jim Brady’s restaurant in Detroit, while embracing the nostalgia of the 1950s. One side of the dining room features a lavish “gangster” booth adorned with ruby crushed velvet, and an oversized black and white mural of Jim Brady made from an old newspaper photograph watches over the bar. On the other side, ROSSETTI recreated the former Jim Brady’s booths with street lamps and blade signs.
