The tables are set and the grill is now fired up to a searing 1800 degrees.

The Hyde Park Prime Steakhouse opened its doors in Birmingham on Thursday, June 7th, 2012.

It's the restaurant's first Michigan location and present its award-winning steaks, diverse fish and seafood offerings.

Hyde Park's chef-driven menu will feature variations of its legendary aged prime steaks and continue its tradition of naming signature dishes after area sports celebrities. Naturally, the Birmingham menu will honor Detroit sports legends and future hall-of-famers. A sampling of the celebrity named steaks include a filet mignon crowned with lobster and béarnaise, while another steak will feature two petite cuts of tenderloin wrapped in bacon and blue cheese. Hyde Park will also offer prime dry-aged and Wagyu "Kobe-style" steaks.

The restaurant's rich, stylish décor features lots of comfortable leather seating, wood-paneled walls, three fireplaces, portrait-lit art and museum framed oil paintings suspended from the ceiling.

Executive Chef Allan Ayers was good enough to stop by the Fox 2 kitchen Friday morning. Click on the video player to watch him work his magic.
