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.

                Yep...they have been closed for awhile now.

            2. Bistro 222 on Michigan Ave, is one of the best restaurants in Dearborn in my opinion. They have had some very good reviews.


              1. The two best Middle Eastern restaurants in Dearborn:

                10613 W Warren Ave
                Dearborn, MI 48126
                (313) 581-0714

                  M&M Cafe
                  13714 Michigan Ave
                  Dearborn, MI 48126
                  (313) 581-5775

                  Great home cooking... Turkey burger they serve on Wednesday is to die for!
                  Lemon Chicken and their tomato soup are also delicious.
