Twelve Oaks Mall – 27466 Novi Road, Novi – is finally putting something into the empty Max and Erma’s space – Sedona Taphouse. With plans to open in late March, this will be Sedona Taphouse’s second location, with the other in Troy at 198 E. Big Beaver Road. Owner, former state Sen. Marty Knollenberg, said the Novi demo is complete and they are currently renovating the space. So far, they’ve added a large bar and significantly expanded the patio area. Said patio includes fire pits and an area that will be open all year-round. Knollenberg mentioned the menu will look similar to Troy’s – steak, seafood, pastas, and chicken dishes. Even though they don’t have any Novi charities finalized yet, they will continue their weekly Steak Out for Charity specials when they open. “I think it’s going to be a great value to Novi...it’s going to be exciting to tap into that marketplace and bring something that will hopefully draw people to the area,” he said.
