French-style Bistro to Open This Month at Courtyard Shops in Ann Arbor
Mikette, a French-style bistro that features plates inspired by the culture of Marseille, France, will open this month near the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
The new bistro will offer sharable menu items made from scratch, such as a French dip sandwich, salmon pate, steak frites, smoked trout, and French onion soup.
“With our menu interpretations of classic French dishes and Mediterranean cuisine, including a new-to-market raw bar, we are eager to establish Mikette as a fresh new dining experience,” says Adam Baru, owner of Mikette.
At 3,000 square feet, Mikette will feature 75 indoor seats as well as 50 outdoor seats located under a patio and canopy area. Baru says 40 to 50 people will be hired to run the day-to-day operations of the bistro.
The bistro will be located in The Courtyard Shops, 1759 Plymouth Rd., a shopping complex adjacent to the North Campus of the University of Michigan that’s managed by Birmingham-based Broder & Sachse Real Estate Services.
“Mikette is sure to bring a quality dining experience to The Courtyard Shops that is unique to Ann Arbor’s shopping centers on the north side,” says John Hamburger, president of Broder & Sachse.
Mikette is Baru’s third restaurant in the Ann Arbor area. He also owns Mani Osteria and Isalita Cantina, which are both located at 341 E. Liberty St.
