That handsome, low-slung driftwood building you’ve noticed next to Plum Market on Orchard Lake Road at Maple — you know, the one with visible flames outside — well, it’s high time you went inside.
West Bloomfield’s profile as a dining destination has risen dramatically since the July 29 opening of Prime29, a contemporary steakhouse also offering seafood and cocktails. Co-owners Joe Barbat, founder of cellular store chain Wireless Toyz, and Jacob Dehko are new to the restaurant business but ambitious. Since taking ownership of the former Bar 7 Grill and 7 Ultra Lounge & Restaurant, Barbat said they’ve created an upscale “community place” for casual fine dining. Doors open at 4 p.m. daily.
