NYC CH'r looking for one great meal in Detriot
- Spends Rent on Food Apr 3, 2009 05:46 AM
We'll be in detriot for the final four this weekend, and while most of the weekend is already planned, I have made time Sunday evening for one really good meal. While I'm up for anything, I'll be travelling with a few family members who aren't very adventurous (greek town is probably 'pushing the envelope' for them).
Anyone have any recommendations? Cuisine can be Seafood, Greek, Italian, American, or steakhouse. Price not a huge issue.
Any can't miss places in Detroit?
Many thanks to all who offer suggestions.
some places to check out:
all of those are super tasty, of different price points and decor. never had a bad meal at any of 'em.
I personally love Seldom Blues (downtown). Saltwater is a great suggestion too - both are very upscale but have good selection. At Saltwater, if everyone doesn't like seafood, you can order off othe steak menu at Bourbon (next door). Slows is awesome - but casual (depending on what you are looking for). Both the Detroit Free Press and Detroit News have some good articles about the restaurant scene...
Welcome to the D - have fun!

I was in Detroit on business in February and we had dinner at Roast. One of my fellow auditors was a very picky, unadventurous eater (he ate plain steak and baked potato 4 nights in a row) and he liked Roast as well. Granted he only ate steak and potatoes!
Very nice ambiance and great food. It was my first Michael Symon restaurant and I was very impressed.
