Dazzling dining

When Shimar Mitchell says the dishes at Table No. 2 – 18925 Livernois Avenue and Seven Mile Road along the famed Avenue of Fashion in Detroit – come with a wow factor, he means it. There’s the fried chicken dish served in a mason jar and a variety of meals served tableside, such as the Tomahawk steak, caesar salad, lobster bisque, and banana foster. “Diners want to be entertained, they want a show, and they want the food to taste good,” said Mitchell, who is the restaurant’s general manager. “So we put all those elements together.” The gourmet American cuisine restaurant – which opened on Easter Sunday – is owned by twin brothers, Shimar and Omar, who serves as their executive chef, and has a warm and inviting tone. Omar may be recognized for when he was on Food Network’s “Chopped” and ran the Great Lakes Burger Bar in Detroit. Being called a “white linen, fine dining restaurant,” Table No. 2 is the first of its kind in Detroit’s Avenue of Fashion. The garden patio will seat 85 and open as soon as weather permits.
