JOE MUER SEAFOOD NOW IN BLOOMFIELD HILLS

I have always been a HUGE fan of Joe Muer Seafood. Whenever a special occasion or celebration came up, it was place I suggested. But for so long, the only location was in Detroit – which is wonderful but quite the drive for some people. So I was extremely excited to hear about the Bloomfield Hills location opening – now whether you are in the suburbs or downtown, you can enjoy this upscale, phenomenal restaurant.

Spot.

The new location is located at 39475 Woodward Ave, Bloomfield Hills, MI 48304, right next to The Kingsley Inn. There is valet available or parking in front or on the side of the restaurant.

Cost.

Joe Muer Seafood has won award after award for best seafood restaurant, restaurant of the year and more. So their prices do reflect the amazing seafood and spectacular service. Entrees range from $35-$90 but they do offer some incredible happy hour drink and appetizer specials.

The sushi is always fresh and unique.

The decor and ambiance is stunning.

VOO VODKA: ANYTIME, ANYWHERE

When we were introduced to VOO Vodka, we went on a mission to convince our friends that it is the way to go when drinking vodka… anytime, anywhere! It is so clean, that even the anti- vodka drinker couldn’t deny its smooth flavor. voo-bottle1

Why VOO?

VOO Vodka is distilled and distributed right here in Michigan. It is distilled eight times versus the industry standard five times, which explains why there was no “burn” when you drink it.

VOO Vodka makes the perfect mixer in a cocktail:
