Any good restaurants in Dearborn, Michigan?

Looking for something at the higher end and something casual.

  1. How broad are your tastes?

    For mainstream fish & chops, consider Big Fish. It's on the loop road
    around Fairlane Mall.

    The restaurant at the Ritz Carlton does a fine job for higher-end fare.
    Dearborn has a VERY wide selection of arab restaurants and a couple
    of good asian choices.

    1. I've never been there but isn't Giovannie's close to Dearborn?

        It's maybe a 15 minute drive from Dearborn --the best Italian restaurant I've ever been in, anywhere. Warm service, outstanding food ---flavorful, sophisticated, not just red gravy.
        A treasure.

          Depending on where you are in Dogbone, less than that.

      2. It's been a while but I remember the Early American Room at the Dearborn Inn being good, plus the building itself is historic. Near Greenfield Village/Henry Ford Museum if that is on your agenda.

        Casual? Millers Bar for burgers! Can't get any more casual than that.

        And of course Middle Eastern.

        1. I am in love with Amani's on Michigan Ave just a block west of Schaefer. I keep singing it's praises but I never hear anything back from fellow Chowhounds. I think you all would be the happier for making the trip.

              I think Steve's 3 Brothers is closed now.
