01 Jul Get To Know Jeffrey Hillman
Full Name: Jeffrey David Hillman
Where did you grow up?
I grew up right here in Metro Detroit in Huntington Woods, MI.
Where else have you lived in Detroit?
I moved to Downtown Detroit in 2010. My house in Royal Oak had been sold and I decided to look in Detroit after a real estate seminar at Centaur Bar behind the Fox Theater. I had a persuasive chat with the owner who has always been a strong advocate for the city. From there I took off work on a sunny Friday in April to look around. By May I had moved into Woodward Square. Best decision I’ve ever made!
List three things that make you happy.
A perfect cut on a slalom waterski on a still glass lake. New York City. A great throw out from third-to-first base.
What is the last book your read?
One More Thing by B.J. Novak. I actually am constantly reading it. You will always find this book in my briefcase.
What is your favorite restaurant in the area?
I actually don’t eat any meat besides fish, so I really enjoy Greenspace in Ferndale. You don’t have to be vegan to enjoy it, the food is amazing and the staff is very knowledgable of the menu.
How do you take your coffee?
I actually quit coffee in January, don’t miss it at all.
What is your go-to drink at the bar?
Shaken Dry Tanqueray Martini. Taught to me by my awesome Uncle Gary Eisenberg – thanks Uncle G!
