Dinner in Detroit - Suggestions Needed
I am staying in Detroit for business tonight (and in the future). Staying by airport but would like to find a place for dinner in a cool hood...maybe downtown. I am vegetarian and like a modern-ish restaurants. Love tapas style and prefer a good red wine selection. Any ideas?
I assume you have a car at your disposal. Otherwise you're kind of up the creek as mass transit, in a word, sucks.
Middle Eastern in Dearborn would not be far from the airport...good for vegetarian, not so hot for alcohol. If your definition of "cool" includes an authentic ethnic neighborhood, Warren Road in Dearborn would qualify.
Ann Arbor is not too far...eve and Seva come to mind.
Small Plates in downtown Detroit might fit the bill, but others will have to say if it's worth the trip as I haven't been. The menu looks like what you have in mind, though
314 E Liberty St, Ann Arbor, MI 48104
Not many good restaurants near the airport.
The best vegetarian that is somewhat nearby is NeeHee's (indian, vegetarian street
food). Very tasty. No liquor at NeeHee's.
Otherwise; this italian restaurant is very near the airport ... it was just-okay:
Much better italian; not that far from the airport:
