The Capitol Park restaurant opens with a menu of hamburgers and sandwiches in a retro-inspired space
Proprietor Eli Boyer and Co-Executive Chefs Jennifer Jackson and Justin Tootla
(DETROIT, MI; March 8, 2018)— The team behind Ferndale’s successful seafood spot Voyager opens their second restaurant Lovers Only in Detroit’s Capitol Park neighborhood. Proprietor Eli Boyer, alongside Co-Executive Chefs Jennifer Jackson and Justin Tootla, unveil their concept at 34 W. Grand River Ave. with an approachable and nostalgic menu and thoughtful service. Following in Voyager’s footsteps, the restaurant will provide the same heartfelt hospitality guests have come to expect, but in a fast casual setting. “Our aim is to add layers to quick service so that our guests truly feel that they’ve been taken care of when they visit, not only fed,” says Boyer.
Chefs Jennifer Jackson and Justin Tootla craft burgers and sandwiches that draw from their rich culinary experience—as well as family memories—to create a menu that not only delivers deliciousness, but a story as well. Each burger uses a special grind of 100% pasture-raised Michigan beef from local butcher Farm Field Table , as well as its own unique bun or bread. Inspired by a trip Jackson and Tootla took through Wisconsin, the Burlington tops a beef patty with dijonnaise, twice-cooked onions, pickle relish, and Wisconsin-style cheddar cheese sauce on a brioche bun, while the Classic Smash presents a more modest approach to the burger with a smashed beef patty, mayo, mustard, onion, and lettuce. Chef Jackson’s Southern charm shows through in the Extern which draws from a quirky family tradition of serving cold fried chicken sandwiches (topped with house slaw and white barbeque sauce).
Lovers Only’s beverage program keeps things simple with a curated list craft draft beers, as well as a variety of draft cocktails. A fast favorite from the cocktail menu is the House Punch made with rum, Aperol, Chambord, lemon, honey, and mint – perfect for pairing with a burger or on its own at the bar. The full food and beverage menu.
The interior of Lovers Only reflects the classic appeal of its menu with vintage-inspired design. Round avocado banquettes and quirky patterned wallpaper with a cowboy motif play against sleek tile and brushed brass. A variety of globe lights and large front windows brighten the space and provide an expansive view of the bustling Capitol Park neighborhood.
“We’re thrilled that our vision for Lovers Only has come to fruition, and we can’t wait to share our independently-owned burger joint with the Detroit community. Care, craftsmanship, hospitality is at the core of everything we do, and that shines through in every element of this restaurant,” says Proprietor Eli Boyer.

Lovers Only to Source from Farm Field Table as Well as Other Michigan Artisans
Ahead of its March opening, the Capitol Park restaurant shares details on its ingredients and menu
Proprietor Eli Boyer, Co-Chefs Justin Tootla and Jennifer Jackson
(DETROIT, MI; March 1, 2018)— The team behind Ferndale’s successful seafood spot Voyager aims to highlight Michigan’s wealth of local artisans at their upcoming Capitol Park restaurant Lovers Only. Proprietor Eli Boyer alongside Co-Executive Chefs Jennifer Jackson and Justin Tootla worked carefully to select quality ingredients for each element of their menu: from the meat to the buns, ice cream, and more.
Collaborating closely with butcher Farm Field Table, Chefs Jackson and Tootla created a customized meat grind for Lovers Only’s burgers using 100% pasture-raised Michigan beef. Dry-aged chuck, brisket, and short rib creates a combination of umami, meatiness, richness, and complexity that results in the ultimate marriage of flavor and texture for their burgers. Those burgers include the Classic Smash on a sesame potato roll with a 6 oz. patty, onion, mayo, and mustard and the Burlington on a brioche bun with a 6 oz. patty, dijonaise, raw and cooked onions, pickle relish, and Wisconsin-style cheddar cheese sauce. Lovers Only will also serve a handful of other sandwiches, including The Extern with cold fried chicken with house slaw and white bbq sauce.
Along with Farm Field Table’s selection of family farm-raised meats, Lovers Only will source their buns from Brown’s Bun Bakery and Alharamine International Foods, milk from Guersney Farms Dairy, ice cream from Calder Dairy for their milkshakes, and bologna and hot dogs from Sy Ginsberg.
“Michigan is home to so many incredible artisans and family-owned companies: from butchers like Farm Field Table that work to highlight small producers and farms to businesses like Sy Ginsburg that have been perfecting their recipes for generations. We want to be a burger joint for Detroit, so naturally we’re partnering with the best local purveyors possible,” says Proprietor Eli Boyer.

I’m almost tempted to go with this tutorial because the ones they have out are horrible. They don’t do justice to Shuri or the actress who played her.
