Ima, take two

February 19, 2019

 

So far, so great, at Ima’s second location in Madison Heights at 32203 John R Road, which opened in late December. Those who frequent the Corktown location – 2015 Michigan Avenue, Detroit – will notice differences between the two. For starters, the new 2,500-square-foot space is all counter service. Owner/chef Mike Ransom said they did this because it’s quicker, especially for those looking to go out during lunch, compared to a full sit-down restaurant. “It’s kind of a hybrid,” he said. “It’s the ease of service with the speed of a fast food restaurant.”  Ransom noted that it’s been well received by guests. The menu also has some changes, including a separate ramen menu – there are four choices, with one that is vegan, and all are popular – and a few different beverages. One new dish that was only on the Madison Heights menu, their smoked salmon potato salad, was so popular it’s now on Corktown’s menu too. They now have their liquor license in Madison Heights and offer artisan beer, sake, and wine. “The city of Madison Heights has been great to work with…it’s been a really positive welcome to the city and we’re really happy to be there,” he said.
