What is Michigan's Most Haunted Restaurant?
According to Food Network, The Witney on Woodward Avenue in Detroit is the best place to enjoy a meal and have the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. The legendary building was built between 1890 and 1894 for lumber baron, David Whitney. The family lived in the iconic home until 1920. The Whitney has 52 rooms throughout its 21,000 square feet including 20 fireplaces. Here's what Food Network had to say about adding the once residence now restaurant to the list;
"The Whitney, a palatial building on Woodward Avenue, is a portal to the past in midtown Detroit. It was built as a private residence in 1893, and after various uses over the years, was transformed into The Whitney restaurant in 1987. On the mansion’s first floor you can sup on the signature beef Wellington in the Music Room or head upstairs to The Ghostbar for dessert and clever cocktails such as The Witching Hour, a martini with a touch of sweetness. Despite its moniker, paranormal activity isn’t limited to The Ghostbar. The elevator has been known to move from floor to floor with no riders, and several guests have spotted a crying woman dressed in white in the third-floor ladies’ lounge. Even the owners’ son had an unexpected memento from his bachelor party here — a ghostly apparition caught in a group photo. Can’t get enough thrills and chills? Check out The Whitney’s monthly paranormal dinners or special ghost adventure events during Halloween week".
