As a concept, Lady of the House is a Modern American restaurant and bar by Chef Kate Williams in Detroit’s historic Corktown neighborhood.  Our menus demonstrate a passion for knowledge and technique, with special emphasis on freshness and creativity, also reflecting a strong commitment to community sourcing and support of Michigan farms.  

The goal of our hospitality team is to provide an unforgettable dinner party every night, each visit a unique experience for travelers far and near, or neighbors across the street.  Our offerings may surprise or delight you, but after all, we’re responsible for your happiness, and this means you should want for nothing while you’re here, already so generously sharing your evening with us.  Quite truly, we couldn’t do it without you.  We look forward to caring for you soon.
