the Exchange: Davante Burnley & Justice Akuezue

Episode Notes

Detroit is internationally recognized for Motown, Auto Motors, and today’s craft cocktails. The drink wizards using blends of natural juices, mixers (Shout Out Steve & Wolf Moon soon a guest again on Detroit is Different), and liquors are costing more than the traditional mojito, and so much better. Justice Akuezue & Davante Burnley are developing an experience through the Exchange combining fine dining and high-end drinks for Black culture. Both young Black men building their business with experience as the head chef for (Savannah Blue) and bartending experience (Grey Ghost & Detroit City Distillery) have the premise for a top-notch experience. Here Devantae and Justice give their takes on Detroit’s restaurant culture, Black business, and their aspirations.
