Hot Spot: John D Bistro


Published:

This stylish yet casual spot brings something just a little different to the eclectic mix that is Ferndale. Its one-room space is a complete reworking of what in a previous life was the funky Club Bart — and if I have to tell you who the designer was, you haven’t been paying attention. The menu of sharable appetizers, sandwiches, and burgers is augmented by full-scale lamb-chop and filet-mignon entrees presented with artistic flair. Roll-up front windows bring the street scene into play, and when the tiny balcony stage behind the bar is dark, it becomes a coveted dining area.

22726 Woodward, Ferndale; 248-398-4070, johndbistro.com. D 4-10 p.m. Sun.-Wed., 4-11 p.m. Thur.-Sat., BR 10 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Sun.
