About us

Welcome to Syndicate Ferndale, an upscale Seasonal cycle Restaurant nestled in the heart of downtown Ferndale, Michigan. Founded by Dana Taucher, Syndicate is a culinary conquest that combines the freshest local ingredients with a sophisticated ambiance to create a truly unforgettable dining experience.

Situated at 140 Vester St, Syndicate breathes new life into a historic location which was once Ferndale City Glass Co. A location that layed vacant for some years, Dana had a vision for a bustling restaurant when she discovered this hidden gem upon moving to Ferndale in 2019. Now, Syndicate has become a reality and stands as a testament to her passion and dedication.

At Syndicate our Locally focused seasonal menu takes center stage, showcasing the vibrant flavors of the region.
