Coming to Ferndale Thursday, a brand new edition to the metro Detroit dining and nightlife scene: The new Inyo Restaurant and Lounge is all set to celebrates its grand opening.
Fresh and delicious sushi will definitely be served up as well as other modern creations, however Inyo is focused on being something different.
“We’re not really trying to do the Asian fusion,” says Service Manager Derek Rekar, “but it is Asian cuisine.”
Inyo, which is the Japanese symbol for circle and means weakness and strength, opened its doors in a soft opening June 4, but on Thursday, guests will be greeted with a full lunch and dinner menu that includes items like Bejing Duck, a newly-opened patio and sounds by Captn20.
Nightlife “is something we want to focus on,” Rekar says. “We do want the bar atmosphere but we want the lounge experience” too.
There’s no dance floor at Inyo, but with occasional DJs, a full bar, unique dishes like shabu shabu (thinly-sliced meat cooked at the table), this is a spot you’ll definitely want to keep watching on your after-dark radar.
8 p.m. Thursday, Inyo Restaurant and Lounge, 22871 Woodward Ave., Ferndale, 248-543-9500.
