Hot Spot: November 2014

Bistro 82 /// The interesting happy hour menu served in the bar from 4-6:30 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday is attracting attention at the corner of Lafayette Avenue and Fourth Street in downtown Royal Oak. Chef Derik Watson and crew are dishing up niceties including salmon tartare, Parmesan pommes frites, French bread pizzas, Prince Edward Island mussels, and East Coast oysters — and not a chicken wing in sight — to go along with bubbly and craft beer on tap and a nice selection of wine and liquor at bargain prices. 401 S. Lafayette Ave., Royal Oak; 248-542-0082.
