in downtown Ann Arbor reopened Tuesday after two weeks of renovations.
The new bar area at Real Seafood Company has a "modern vibe," said Mainstreet Ventures' director of marketing Julie White.
The 37-year-old restaurant at 341 S. Main St. has new black awnings and a new exterior, an updated kitchen and a remodeled bar area. The restaurant closed on May 21
, and the goal was to have it reopen before Ann Arbor's Restaurant Week starts
on June 9.
Real Seafood owner Dennis Serras, a partner in Mainstreet Ventures, said the company is taking a phased renovation approach at the 7,200-square-foot restaurant, which hasn’t received a major remodel in about a decade. The renovation started last year when the restaurant’s bathrooms were completely replaced.
Recent changes include: increased seating in the bar area, the addition of high-top table seating, new flat-screen televisions and a new bar.
