Northville’s downtown area, which has become known for its number of restaurant options, now welcomes four new establishments to the neighborhood. Wok Asian Bistro, Lucy & the Wolf, Center Street Grille and Urge Juice expand downtown Northville’s offerings to 25 restaurants. This added diversity certainly increases consumer appeal to the neighborhood, which of course adds value. 

Wok Asian Bistro has a lot of things going for it. For one, the casual concept with full bar prides itself on using premium ingredients, like locally sourced produce and imported Thai shrimp. They also offer lots of customization options. Diners can cater their Wok Asian Bistro experience a few different ways: They can build their own stir fry from a list of ingredients and sauces, choose from one of the menu creations, or take the more adventurous route in telling a Wok Master what type of flavors they like and letting the WM take the lead. Another bonus? Wok Asian Bistro supports OneHope Wine, which gives half of all proceeds to various charities.

On the other side of the flavor spectrum is Spanish-inspired tapas. Interested? Try Lucy & the Wolf, which comes to you from the owners of highly acclaimed Table 5. Lucy & the Wolf only has one Yelp review so far considering how new it is, but the review is promising, giving a shoutout to the barrel-aged Manhattan served in a mini flask, the tomatoes (Tomato in Cast Iron: heirloom tomatoes, peppers, garlic, cheese curd, egg and baguette crisps), and the biscuit dessert. The menu, as far as we can see, includes a “charred” section (biscuits & honey, chimichurri flank, clams and double charred chicken wings are all on there) and a “chilled” section (smoke salmon tartar, Bay scallops crudo and a lentil salad, to name a few).
