FERNDALE, Mich. - He's a familiar face on Fox 2 News, Cardiologist and Author Dr. Joel Kahn and now, he's added something else to his resume, restaurateur.
His new café combines healthy living, fine dining and even mixology.
"Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food,” said Dr. Kahn.
Modern translation; eat, drink, be merry but also healthy.
"I’m taking my medical career as a heart specialist at a number of the hospital systems and my own clinic and merging it with fine dining,” said Dr. Kahn.
Holistic heart Doc Joel Kahn, M.D., he is a doctor and plays one on TV, is talking about his brand new Greenspace Café in Ferndale, a sort of daring mash up of eat your greens and push the button marked booze.
“As probably a few viewers can see behind us, we want you to have a really good time while you are eating really tasty and healthy and behind us is a full liquor license gorgeous bar,” said Dr. Kahn.
It's local farm to table, plant based.
“We're fresh, we don’t use fryers or microwaves and this is really hand-crafted food like you might see in L.A., New York or London,” said Dr. Kahn. “We are right here in Ferndale doing that."
Opening night underway, dinner to start with lunch and carryout planned for 2016.
