This Wyandotte Seafood Restaurant Will Make Your Mouth Water
Wyandotte – Whether you like to dip lobster tails in butter or want a sophisticated fish dish, if it comes from the water, they serve it at H2O Seafood.
“I’ve always been a great fisherman, a great hunter, I’ve traveled the world doing both,” says David Wood, Executive Chef and General Manager of H2O Seafood. “Thanks to this, I was able to meet Al Frtiz, the owner of the property, also a partner. He always wanted to do seafood, he was also a big guy from Key West, so we came up with this concept together, and it’s a dream come true. “
They wanted to mix those Key West vibes with the tastes of Michigan, taking classic seafood dishes and giving them a twist. Chilean sea bass, for example, is lightly coated in panko breadcrumbs and Morrel mushrooms, a Michigan favorite. Michigan fish like walleye are also on the menu, but you can also get blackened grouper and shrimp.
This mixture of styles is also found in the decoration. The tables are all made in Michigan from reclaimed wood from Detroit, while the walls are covered in murals depicting underwater life. There’s a nod to Key West with photos of Ernest Hemingway, a famous author who made Key West his home, framed in old Florida lobster traps.
“It’s very fun, exciting, cool, collective. Not fine dining, but not mediocre dining either,” Wood says.
Their food will make your mouth water. Popular appetizers include their Cold Water Trio, which features cocktail shrimp, fresh oysters, and lobster claws. They like to try to add seafood any way they can. The mer-cuterie, for example, offers white fish mixed with chorizo in their sausage and smoked salmon, plus all the nuts and cheeses you’d expect on a charcuterie board. Their Crab Caprese is exactly what it sounds like, tons of crab piled on a fresh Caprese salad. Main courses include their twin lobster tails which are perched on a pile of mashed potatoes served with mixed vegetables and melted butter on the side. Freshly made desserts include items like peach cheesecake.
