Noble Fish, a popular sushi restaurant and carryout at 14 Mile and Main Street in downtown Clawson, is expanding, the downtown Clawson Facebook page announced Monday.

Joan Horton, executive director of the Clawson Downtown Development Authority, said Noble Fish will expand east and north into the spaces once occupied by the Tirana Cafe, which is closed, and a hair salon, respectively. 

All the work needed for the expansion is interior work, and it won't result in any closures of the business. No exact timing for the completion of the expansion was available Monday, Horton said, because the plan for the design is still being finalized.

"A couple months" is the expected time frame.

The hope, she said, is to expand while retaining the character the restaurant enjoys.

While the expansion will open up more seating, it will also allow more to-go options to be offered. The expansion will also streamline the entire takeout experience, Horton said.

Noble Fish declined to make its management available for comment Monday, so no word was given on whether expanded space would result in expanded hours at the restaurant.
