Detroit Head Chef Ben Wiley attended school in Grand Rapids before he left to join the culinary world on the west side of the state. Ben’s first position with Maru was at Maru Grand Rapids when they opened in 2012, and from there made the move to open Maru Midland and then again a few years later to open Maru Detroit.

Why does Ben love Maru?

He loves the family culture and opportunity for growth that his position as chef offers.

“There aren’t a ton of barriers set for anyone outside of the own determination,” he said.

Stop into Maru Detroit and have Ben make you his favorite dish – a negi-hama maki (yellowtail and scallion roll). Simple but delicious.
