New Pearl’s Deep Dive Seafood Restaurant Opens in Royal Oak
Pearl’s Deep Dive, the first of two new concepts at 11 Mile and Main in downtown Royal Oak, has made its debut.
Now open under Pinky’s Rooftop Restaurant & Bar, Pearl’s aims for a 1920s vibe for both the jazzy decor and the classic menu. Expect Rockefeller oysters, New England lobster rolls, lobster balls, champagne and caviar.
Popular architects Ron & Roman designed the space, which is centered by a large horseshoe-shaped bar seating 10 and serving handcrafted cocktails like “Some Like it Hot” and “Brown Butter Rum Old Fashioned” “. The capacity of the cozy 2000 square foot restaurant is 70 in total.
“Our team is thrilled to bring Pearl’s Deep Dive to the Royal Oak community, expanding our presence in the downtown area,” said owner Adam Merkel in a media alert regarding the opening. “Pearl’s has a unique, fun, eclectic and old-soul vibe and, like our other concepts, is intended to attract guests regionally while maintaining a strong neighborhood vibe.”
Pearl’s Deep Dive and a second restaurant under Pinky’s – Bohemia, coming in early 2022 – replace Merkel’s Diamonds Steak and Seafood. The restaurateur still operates a Diamonds Steak and Seafood in Howell along with two other restaurants.
Pearl’s, 100 S. Main, is open from 4:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday. and 4 pm-1am Fri-Sat Make reservations through the Resy app or visit pearlsdeepdive.com.
