Bogart’z Food & Spirits, Detroit MI | Merchant Profile

Bogartíz Food & Spirits first opened in 2005 and was owned by Gary Van Biervliet. Garyís son Jason began helping out at the restaurant and found his real passion in the kitchen. Jason continued to work more and more in the kitchen that he ended up quitting his second job to work at the restaurant fulltime. After seeing his son dedicate so much time and effort to improving Bogartíz, Gary then presented the opportunity for Jason to buy the restaurant from him. Jason accepted his offer and spent the next few years working to save up money in order to make the down payment. Jason went to the Art Institute of Troy as well in order to finish culinary school and hone his skills in the kitchen. After three years of hard work Jason was able to buy Bogartíz from his father and started turning the restaurant into his own vision. Jason redid the whole front of the building, changed the lighting, and even added an outdoor patio area. In addition to aesthetics, Jason also revamped and updated the menu to a more contemporary style. Jason wanted Bogartíz Food & Spirits to have a gastropub vibe where people could come and enjoy a good beer with quality food.  Everything at Bogartíz is fresh and made in-house.
