New FINS Kitchen & Bar Pays Homage to Michigan’s Rich History

Share Article

The former Sweet Lorraine’s located inside the Detroit Marriott Livonia is now FINS Kitchen & Bar. Connected to Laurel Park Place mall, the new restaurant specializes in contemporary American fare and libations. The name “FINS” has dual significance, reflecting both the fresh fish and seafood of the Great Lakes, and the “fins” or taillights on cars, a nod to Michigan’s deep roots in the automotive industry.

The former Sweet Lorraine’s located inside the Detroit Marriott Livonia is now FINS Kitchen & Bar. Connected to Laurel Park Place mall, the new restaurant specializes in contemporary American fare and libations.

“FINS is about celebrating the heart of Michigan, and its unique history and geography,” said David Kipfmiller, general manager for the hotel. “It was the right time for the change as Detroit has been experiencing a resurgence. We are really happy to see our longtime guests and fresh faces enjoying the new feel and menu.”

On February 13, FINS is hosting a ribbon-cutting and “Kick Your Winter Blues” grand reopening celebration from 5:00-7:30 pm.
