52969 Van Dyke Ave., Shelby Township, 586-580-9382; vastkitchenandbar.com
Open since last year, the Vast crew wanted to provide a restaurant that was high-end but approachable, sophisticated but not intimidating. That translates into a menu of burgers and sandwiches for lunch, but some pretty high-toned entrees for dinner, including filet mignon, Parmesan-crusted chicken, lamb chops with polenta, and crab cakes. At the corner of Van Dyke and 24 Mile, the business is closed Sundays.
