On Thursday, August 13, 2015, the Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries will re-open its Cornerstone Bistro Restaurant and unveil its new Ice Cream Parlor and outdoor dining area.

The restaurant, which is located in Highland Park on Woodward, serves as a training facility and education venue for residents of DRMM programs to learn Culinary Arts skills, as well as a family, sit-down restaurant. DRMM opened the restaurant in 2010, and has since graduated more than 75 students from its training program, while provided a fun, family restaurant environment that serves healthy and delicious meals.

The event on Thursday is especially exciting due to the unveiling of the restaurant’s new outdoor eating area, as well as the addition of the ice cream parlor to the restaurant’s menu.

“We are very excited to re-open this beautiful restaurant and welcome the community to taste our ice cream and new menu items,” said Dr. Chad Audi, president of DRMM. “Job-training is a critical component for rehabilitation, and we work very hard every day to ensure those we serve have as many opportunities for training and education. That’s one of the reasons why I love to Bistro so much.”

In anticipation of the back-to-school rush, and to encourage school-aged children to work hard, the Bistro is offering an ice cream initiative to every student in the community. For every five (5) books read, the Bistro will give away a FREE ice cream cone. Reading log forms can be accessed online on DRMM’s website, as well as onsite at the Bistro, or DRMM’s Admin offices.

DRMM will host a formal Taste Fest event for the entire community in September.

In addition to family dining and ice cream, the Cornerstone Bistro provides catering and banquet hall services.
