Help! restaurants? - last minute 40th anniversary dinner for 15 [Detroit]

jskang47 Apr 13, 2012 02:53 PM

My in-laws are celebrating their 40th anniversary next weekend, and my husband dropped the ball on planning. We're looking for something nice/middle or the road-ish in terms of price (perhaps a little nicer than an Andiamo). Any suggestions are appreciated!

    What part of DTW do you wanna go to? Any cuisine restrictions/likes/dislikes?

      POssibly downtown (but with restaurant week, I'm not sure that will be possible). Birmingham, Royal Oak-ish area would work, too. I think the group is fairly mainstream (not huge lovers of ethnic food) :P

        Angelina downtown is a big place and matches your little-nicer-than-Andiamo spec. Last Restaurant Week I was there, and it had a decent crowd but was not packed. Worth trying for reservations, at least. Fairly novel Italian food but plenty of pizzas for the less adventurous.

          My girlfriend and I celebrated our anniversary at Angelina last year. The food was excellent. It's right across from Comerica, but it's a day game. They've got valet parking, too. I whole-heartedly recommend it.

        Thanks all! Wound up going to opus one--not my favorite--but was still decent food and great service for a group that size.
