THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Opus One Restaurant Review

: Opus One is flexible, like the savvy corporate executives who frequent it. Elegant when required, yet capable of accommodating a casually dressed customer who prefers a meal at the bar, this restaurant has it all. At busy times, peek in the mirrored dining room and see which bigwig (from General Motors, Blue Cross or one of the Detroit sports teams) is sitting pretty. Fare includes Alaskan king crab-stuffed filet of salmon, sesame-crusted ahi and pan-seared Chilean sea bass. You’ll also find more than a dozen beef and seafood dishes (generally there are three specials). Expect white linen on the tables, bread hot from the ovens and a rolling cart of desserts. Owners patrol the floor, shaking hands with all, and paving the way for a first-class experience. Also expect lots of action on the nights when the Opus shuttle transports theater and sports fans and Detroit casino patrons to their destinations. With over 200 different wines from all over the globe, Opus One can rightly boast as having one of the largest wine offerings in the Detroit metro area. Theater packages are available.
