Aaron F. Belen's new venture in downtown Royal Oak is coming to fruition.
Thursday afternoon, Belen and crew were busy opening boxes, training staff and putting the finishing touches on Bistro 82, a new Europeon-style restaurant, and the handsome ultra-lounge, Sabrage, at 401 S. Lafayette.
Belen’s vision is clean and unique and he's invested millions in the hopes of pulling patrons from Ann Arbor, Grosse Pointe, Detroit, Bloomfield Hills and Birmingham to Royal Oak’s “cool, hip, up and coming vibe.”
Patch was invited to snap a few pictures before the doors officially open sometime next week. Stay with Patch for updates on the grand opening.
