A new soul food restaurant has taken up residence in downtown Detroit's Time Square area, The Detroit News first-reports. SavannahBlue opened last week featuring a sleek modern look with exposed brick walls, unfinished ceilings, and a dark color palette. The restaurant seats around 120 diners with 60 in the lounge, lit by an industrial chandelier.

General manager Thor Jones describes the menu as "contemporary soul food." The eatery serves up Southern-inspired flavors like twice dredged fried chicken with collards, maple pecan sauce, and sweet potato puree, alongside flat breads, and braised oxtail with Wisconsin cheddar risotto. There's also a full bar boasting cocktails and wines. Check out the menus below.

SavannahBlue is open Tuesday through Thursday from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 4 p.m. to midnight.
