We had a great time. It was a slow night so we were seated right away. We were downtown to see a show at the Fillmore, and had parked at the Fox structure. It was an easy walk to the restaurant and then back to the Fillmore. Food doesn't take too long and was delicious. Service was great. More

How this isn't at the top of anyone's list of best restaurants in the midwest in unconscionable. The Eater 38 is incomplete without Mabel Gray. Brussel sprouts, meh, Mabel Gray brussel sprouts with venison chorizo, a fantastic dish with flavors that burst with every bite. Tater tots are fast food items, Tater Tot Waffles, unbelievably creative. The Crispy Bass was prepared to perfection, very moist and the skin was, of course, as advertised. The staff is very attentive and in tune with the food prep for that evening. More

This is our fourth time to La Bistecca, each time has been awesome. My wife enjoyed her 6 oz filet, while my NY Strip was cooked to perfection. The accompanying roasted potatoes and haricot verts were cooked perfectly as well. Dessert menu is limited, and that's a good thing, because what they do is the perfect follow-up to their awesome food. More

Discover Detroit

Detroit probably has more nicknames than any other city. The two most common, Motor City and Motown, stem from its large contributions to the automobile and the music industry. This booming city also offers a lot in the way of sporting events, attractions and eating establishments. Detroit not only has restaurants offering food from almost every culture, but it is also known for many of its own special delicacies. Many of the eating venues offer foods that have actually originated here, including Detroit-style pizza, Corridor sausage and double-baked rye bread. You can also taste Eastern Michigan favorites like Coney Island hot dogs and Detroit Street Brick. These are some of the most famous delights of the region, and Detroit and the surrounding area are a great place to give them a try.
