GENUINE TWP. – Livingston County chef Mark Skelton and his wife Emily Underwood are launching what they call a new concept for the local restaurant scene.

The couple is preparing to open Electric Ramen early next month at 5584 E. Grand River Ave., in a shop window at the Middletown Market building.

“We use traditional methods and sensitivity, but with a modern twist,” said the 40-year-old Skelton, who wanted to open his own place after decades of working as a chef, most recently at Brighton Bar & Grill.

Skelton said Electric Ramen recipes will include a modern Pan-Asian turn to Ramen dishes influenced by Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Thai, Indian and other styles of cuisine.

The restaurant will focus on custom takeaway, pickup and delivery via DoorDash. The couple have lunch indoors for about 14 people, and in the future they are considering placing an outdoor picnic table.
