The elaborate restaurant at Detroit’s new Asian Village blends French and Japanese cuisines on artistic plates served to linen-covered tables in the many-windowed room on the river. Each dish on Executive Chef David Koshizawa’s menu is a detailed composition with unexpected ingredients. The medley of salmon ceviche and seared salmon, for instance, served with finely sliced avocado and such accents as a scattering of spicy pink popcorn, and the Swiss chard-wrapped papaya salad atop slivered marinated jicama and carrots in Thai vinaigrette, typify a menu on which there really isn’t a conventional dish. Pastry chef Brandon Taylor’s sophisticated desserts also follow the fusion theme. In addition to an extensive wine choice, there’s a list of premium sakes to go along with the offerings at the sushi bar. 521 Atwater, Detroit; 313-566-0000. L & D Mon.-Fri., D Sat., B Sun. $27. Handicap accessible. 

Note: Dollar amount is average entree.
