On March 18th, The D Brief and Hour Detroit teamed up to host our monthly Networking Night for Detroit creatives. Thanks to everyone who came out!
Here are the creatives that we featured:
Chef Maxcel Hardy, HOUR Detroit‘s 2021 Restauranteur of the Year
Hour Detroit named Chef Maxcel Hardy as the magazine’s first ever Restaurateur of the Year. This twist on one of the magazine’s most highly anticipated annual features reflects all the Detroit dining scene has endured in the past year and honors the distinguished 2021 recipient for his food and philanthropic endeavors during the pandemic.
Recognized as one of Hour Detroit’s 2020 Taste Makers powering the Detroit food scene and one of the 16 Black chefs changing food in America by The New York Times in 2019, Hardy is no stranger to creativity in the kitchen. His cultural culinary expertise can be experienced with every bite of COOP’s Coconut Curry Shrimp served in a fresh pineapple bowl with Caribbean rice and cilantro, or Jeds Detroit’s signature Caribbean Balls drenched in a sweet-spicy mango habanero sauce and topped with bright, citrusy pineapples and shredded cheese.
Coop is located at 474 Peterboro St. in Detroit.
Jeds Detroit is located at 1648 E. Seven Mile in Detroit.
