On fireworks night we were looking for a place to go that wasn't super busy. As we walked by The Foundry, we noticed that there still seemed to be quite a few tables available. Knowing that this was a new venue, and that they had completely renovated what it used to be (a teeny club) we decided to stop in and see what it was like.
At first, we weren't too sure. It seemed dark, and the tables were a bit sticky from the humidity. However, as time went on we adjusted to the darkness and it really is a nice establishment. The decor is great: big wood tables, interesting hanging lights, and lots of large photographs of old Windsor/Detroit on the walls.
They have a decent selection of beers on tap, including a Dubbel from Belgium which I enjoyed.
The food is not really what you would expect when walking in to a place like this. They don't have a traditional kitchen; instead, it is an open space in the corner where they prepare sandwishes, and Mexican fare. They have tacos, burritos, nachos, and a selection of sandwiches. Not exactly what you would expect walking in to a pub. However, it was quite good! My girlfriend has the Guac Chicken sandwich, which they said was very popular and she really enjoyed. I had the burrito, which came served within grilled flatbread.. interesting, but tasty!
The food is also very reasonably priced!
Overall, I'm glad to see that we have lost yet another teen bar in favor of something with a more grown-up atmosphere. I hope it lasts!
