THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Wood-Ruff's Supper Club Restaurant Review

: An east-side Manhattan feeling imbues this interesting spot tucked into a side street in Royal Oak. The piano bar is set on a level above the bar, which is the first thing you see as you come through the French doors, thrown open in warm weather. The friendly welcome, however, may not be what’s thought of as typically Manhattan. The staff really does welcome guests and look after them as they peruse an eclectic menu including a number of American favorites from shrimp cocktail and crab cakes to calamari and sun-dried tomato pizzas. EntrĂ©e choices include a nice twist on fish-of-the-day. It’s chicken-of-the-day, which might be grilled chicken with orange ginger marmalade with rice pilaf and seasonal vegetables. Roast duck is a specialty, as is grilled pork loin with Gorgonzola and red cabbage as well as mashed sweet potatoes. There are a number of pastas, typified by penne with Bolognese sauce and linguini with clams, and steaks which are ubiquitous on local menus. The room, done up with mellow wood accented by copper, is seductively lit for a romantic feeling. It is very much a couples place.
