Upscale Seafood Restaurant Eddie V’s Opens Near Troy’s Somerset Collection in June


Eddie V’s, an upscale seafood restaurant and a sister eatery to The Capital Grille, will open its doors on June 19 in Troy and be located along W. Big Beaver Road, just east of Somerset Collection North. The 267-seat restaurant, which will be open daily for dinner, will employ up to 120 people, offer a jazz and blues stage in the V-Lounge, and will have private space for business activities and charitable events.

Menu selections, influenced by Modern Asian, Classic American, and Southern cuisines, include Parmesan Sole, Chilean Sea Bass, Swordfish Steak, Norwegian Salmon, Pacific Ahi Tuna, Alaskan Halibut, and Cold Water Lobster Tails along with Maine lobster bisque, an oyster bar, crab and corn chowder, and a selection of salads and other appetizers.

The 9,800-square-foot restaurant also will offer a number of hand-cut steaks and other dishes, including filet mignon, bone-in ribeye, New York strip, filet medallions, double-cut Midwestern lamb chops, double breast of chicken, and a range of sauces. Accompaniments include au gratin cheddar potatoes, truffled macaroni and cheese, butter poached lobster mashed potatoes, and grilled asparagus with crispy prosciutto and shirred egg.

“We are a prime seafood house and our fish will be flown in daily so it will be incredibly fresh,” says Mark Flora, managing partner of Eddie V’s, which operates 18 restaurants including locations in Chicago, Orlando, Tampa, San Diego, and Pittsburgh. “At the same time, we will offer an excellent steak program so our diners will have a large selection of menu items to choose from.”

The executive chef is Michael Sauer, who most recently worked at the Sheraton Detroit Metro Airport Hotel. The restaurant will be furnished with mixed wood finishes, natural stone accents, glass, original and lithograph abstract art, and earth tones. A small outdoor patio will be available, as well.

The wine list will feature more than 300 selections from throughout the world, along with a full bar offering beer and cocktail offerings.

There will be three private dining rooms equipped with audio-visual equipment, which combined could accommodate up to 48 seats or 70 people for a strolling reception. The restaurant will be available for private morning and lunch events, as well. “We want to be part of people’s lives, their communities, and their social engagements,” says Trena Franklin, associate manager of sales, luxury brands, for Darden in Orlando, the parent company of Eddie V’s and The Capital Grille.

The restaurant, located at 2100 W. Big Beaver Rd., will be open Monday through Thursday from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m.; Friday and Saturday from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m.; and on Sundays from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. A happy hour also will be offered, as well as personalized event planning, gift cards, and valet services.
