Raymo's Ready to Entertain Fenton

New bar/restaurant to focus on a variety of entertainment for patrons.

It’s showtime.

That’s the vision owner Marc Raymond has for his new restaurant/bar Raymo’s set to open in June.

“It will be more like a theater experience of having several different types of entertainment,” Raymond said. “We might have a lounge singer for 15-20 minutes, then have 10 minutes of comedy, then have a four-piece band for an hour.”

The Raymo’s building, located at 4015 Owen Road, has undergone a complete transformation from its days as a seafood restaurant and bagel shop. Raymond said he tried to create an interactive dining experience with an open kitchen and the building’s own sound system and house instruments.

“Everything has changed. We removed the ceiling, made an open kitchen,” Raymond said. “It has been an incredible transformation. “

Raymond his design reflects his background of a being a professional artist, a wannabe musician and nearly 30 years in the catering business.  The Fenton resident designed the lighting and painted the building’s floors, might play drums once in awhile and will serve some of the food he created with a private aviation catering business.

“Everything is off the less is more concept,” Raymond said.

The restaurant will have a small plates menu featuring smaller portions for a lower price including salmon, beef tenderloin and more. Plates will cost between $5 and $20. Patrons will also be able to purchase wine by the half glass as well as full glass.

“You come in and have more portions of music, food and drink to sample,” Raymond said.

The establishment will be open at 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

“We are trying to put on a show five nights a week,” Raymond said.

Brady...You are correct about Marc's vast experience and his love for this area and wanting to bring these dishes to all of us. I just stopped in today to do a little tweaking with the sound system and stage curtains. Update: Through May/June...Multiple wine and cocktail tastings, to get them "just right". Menu items, created and made. Kim, I and others say they taste wonderful. Chefs Adam and Marc say "no, not quite"... Now, remade, redesigned, reconceptualized into WOW!, and now done. The soft openings, by invitation, are in June. Kate...Cool, fun, artistic design by Marc himself.. Robert...Grand Opening? Stay tuned!
