July 17, 2015 | Detroit Free Press

Join the Feast team Aug, 10 when the Free Press takes over Bistro 82 in Royal Oak for the sixth evening of the Top 10 Takeover dining series. Earlier this year, Bistro 82 won the votes for Readers' Choice Best New Restaurant of 2015. Takeover tickets go on sale at noon Friday. The Bistro 82 tickets are $56 each. Bistro 82 is a great date-night place with a lively but sophisticated atmosphere and clean, contemporary styling – expansive windows, sleek white leather chairs, soft gray walls and vivid paintings. But it’s much more than just another pretty place to have dinner. Executive Chef Derik Watson is one of metro Detroit’s most talented chefs, and his French bistro-inspired plates are as delicious and creative as they are beautiful. Restaurant critic Sylvia Rector – who loves Watson’s style -- says it’s a place food-lovers shouldn’t miss. Here's a glimpse at Bistro 82's Takeover menu: 1st course: Grilled Chesapeake Bay oyster, guanciale-corn relish, pistou butter 2nd course: Consommé royale, foie gras, vegetable matignon, spinach 3rd course: Ricotta tortellini, ragú of duck sausage, pea tendril 4th course: Flat iron steak, honshimeji mushroom, pomme purée, lobster emulsion 5th course: Trois chocolat: chocolate mousse, chocolate bisquit, feuilletine Partial proceeds from the Top 10 Takeover dining series benefit Forgotten Harvest of metro Detroit. Thus far, the Free Press' Takeover events have raised enough for more than 6,000 meals for those in need. The dining series is sponsored by the Metro Detroit Chevy Dealers association. If you are interested in joining us for the hottest dining series in metro Detroit, plan ahead and visit often. Tickets to each Takeover dinner go on sale about three weeks before the event date. Ticket availability depends on the size of the restaurant and the establishment's preferences.
