Local Detroit Recommendations
I'll be on a business trip to Detroit in June...Any suggestions on great local places to eat in a comfortable and fun atmosphere? Thank you.
Slows BBQ, Giovanni's, El Barzon in Detroit
Polish Village Cafe in Hamtramck
There are a lot more recommendations outside Detroit as well, if you are interested

Markcron's suggestions above are solid, although I'd think Brooklyn has dozens of places like Giovanni's. I would head out to Dearborn and eat Middle Eastern food at La PIta (only one with alcohol), Al-Ameer, Cedarland, others. Michigan is the main drag, but Warren Ave. E of the Southfield Fwy. is the real heart of the Arab community.
If you want a downtown bar close to your hotel, I like Sweetwater. Good wings (one variety, not 20 varieties), and a reasonable cross-section of the people who pass through downtown Detroit. Foran's/Grand Trunk on Woodward is also a popular gathering place with a good selection of Michigan beers—probably the most exciting culinary development in our state in recent years.
The coney island hot dog was arguably invented at the two hot dog places on Michigan Ave. just west of Woodward. Enjoy!
Definitly check out Slows BBQ. El Barzon is also a good rec (great margaritas). You might also enjoy Roast and Supino Pizza.
