The day is finally here. Detroit restaurant duo Jacques Driscoll and chef Les Molnar — the men behind Green Dot Stables and Johnny Noodle King — are launching their latest restaurant concept The Huron Room in Mexicantown right now. As the name implies, Huron Room draws on the Great Lakes for inspiration with aquatic décor and a very fishy sign.

The menu also has a big focus on seafood. Diners can order from fish & chips, fish tacos, and fish bolillo with their choice of perch, walleye, whitefish, smelt, trout, or the catch of the day. For those more inclined to order turf, Huron has a variety of options from pierogis to venison kofta and Vernor's to wash it all down. Huron Room is the second restaurant opened by Driscoll and Molnar this year. In May, the pair launched Green Dot Stables' second outpost in Malaysia.
