A lot can be said about a restaurant with a menu that appeals to everyone, especially in times when there is such a variety of choices out and about – different ethnicities, price ranges, styles, etc.
In the end, from a rewarding culinary experience, what most want is a good atmosphere, enthusiastic service...great food. But not food easily made at home; something more than that.
A life-long resident of Northville, Mishelle Lussier and her husband, John, opened Table 5 in September of 2008. Always a place for their family to eat (the two of them, plus three children – a la table for five), Table 5 focuses on presenting regional foods with an American-bistro style approach.
With its incredibly alluring menu postured in a quaint, eclectic atmosphere, Table 5 is a restaurant that easily manages to broadly entice its customers. How? Executive Chef Brandon Wolschleger says that it’s “simple food done right.” Sometimes in the manner of continental cuisine or fusion entrees, simple or otherwise, the preparations and flavors are eccentric.
Like in the Texas rubbed flat iron steak served with Cotswold (British pub cheese) mac ‘n cheese, broccoli and pancho sauce, a savory sauce with its origins from Detroit’s historic London Chop House. Or, in the delectable pan seared scallops with a house-made shiitake mushroom ravioli, edamame, scallions in a dashi broth.
Table 5 also does its part to support the region when it designs its menu. Entrees, such as the sautéed walleye (served with paella fried rice with chorizo, green beans, red peppers, basil cream) come straight from the waters of Lake Huron and Lake Superior. Desserts, like the warm doughnut bread pudding (with apple cider caramel and candied pecans) draws its doughnuts and apples from the nearby – Northville’s oldest operating business – the Parmenter’s Cider Mill. Try something, like the apple tarte tatin, and you’ll find that it’s served with Guernsey Farms Dairy ice cream.
Mishelle and Chef Brandon change the menu with the season and offer a variety of specials and culinary experiences. Table 5 offers liquors, wine by the glass or bottle and local beers on draft.
