The owners of Chanosos and Oishii in Downtown Windsor have unveiled a new restaurant concept slated to open soon.

South Detroit is a brand new eatery that takes a page from a tongue-in-cheek name for describing Windsor.

South Detroit will feature a full service bar, appetizers, soups and salads, sandwiches, burgers, flatbreads and fresh/raw oysters every weekend.

Co-owner Mat Mathias says South Detroit’s name came from Windsor’s history. “The name actually came to be from an article talking about how Windsor was once voted to be names 3 names — South Detroit, Windsor or Rochester. It’s a part of the history of this area and we realized how much Windsor and Detroit have in common and the history we share. The name itself has been well received from the people we have reached out to. You will see a lot of the history from the two cities in the decor.”

South Detroit will feature “the best of Detroit’s classic dishes with a twist” and that South Detroit will also focus on specialty beers, whiskeys and sports.

Owners Scott D’Amore, Seth Perera and Scott Stevens teamed up with Mat Mathias to bring the idea to life which will include a facelift for Chanoso’s/Oishii. The new restaurant will have its own separate street entrance right next to Chanoso’s/Oishii at 255 Ouellette.

“We hope to create a one stop destination in the heart of downtown,” says Mathias. “We feel it will be a truly unique experience, people that want to experience Detroit will have no need to cross the border!”
