WELCOME TO THE SARDINE ROOM!
The Sardine Room offers a raw bar with pristinely fresh oysters and seafood, along with small and large plate menus featuring American bistro fare. A rotating chalkboard menu draws on seasonal, locally sourced products, keeping daily specials fresh and regional. These sections of the menu, along with contemporary bar snacks and sides, let our patrons dictate their dining experience. A meal can be constructed of any selection of snacks, sides, small plates, large plates, or raw bar items, providing an alternative to the formality of traditional ordering. Fresh crudos, artisanal country hams, and house made pates are served in whatever order the diner desires. Large plates such as kobe flat iron steak or bouillabaisse can be shared among a group or ordered as a meal unto themselves. Our culinary team prides itself on executing creative, honest food at reasonable prices.
Beyond the kitchen, our bar program features well prepared cocktails made with respectable spirits, and an emphasis on the classics. An eclectic, affordable wine list is offered alongside a michigan-heavy selection of craft beers.
With a design that walks the line between big city sophistication and prohibition-era Americana, The Sardine Room gives nod to the contemporary while evoking the spirit of speakeasies, jazz clubs and seaside dives of bygone eras. Located directly across the street from Kellogg park in downtown Plymouth, The Sardine Room welcomes all interested in a good drink, a good bite and a good time.
WHATS WITH THE NAME?
The name “The Sardine Room” was conceived on a boat over several tequila shots. Although fish and seafood offerings are major components of the menu, the name is more about the “feel” of the space than the cuisine. With a comparatively small, long dining room and bar, The Sardine Room provides the type intimate setting usually reserved for its canned namesake.
WHO ARE THE OWNERS?
The Yaquinto Family. Starting with Paisanos Pizza in Dearborn, the Yaquinto’s have been in the business for over four decades. They are also the folks behind neighboring restaurants Compari’s On The Park and Fiamma Grille.
