Two days in Detroit and suburbs

Business trip this week in Detroit area. Headed to Southfield area, then downtown second day. Need recommendation for lunch(something on the way to Southfield from the airport or close to Southfield), a dinner recommendation(will have a car) and then lunch downtown the next day(near the Quicken building). Love local places, no chains, all foods. A good happy hour with great food specials is an option for dinner too!

Been to Bacco, Cafe Thai, toasted oak in novi,

Thanks in advance for recs.....

  1. I'd recommend middle eastern on your way from the airport to southfield. Right off the SF freeway at Ford road is Ollie's.

    1. Downtown:

      - Roast; Michael Symon's palace of hot, dead cow & pig
      - Supino's; PIzza
      - Slows; BBQ
      - Russell Street Deli
      - Traffic Jam & Snug; short drive
      - Vicente's; Cuban
      - Roma Cafe; Italian
      - Bucharest Grill
      - Polish Village Cafe (a short drive)
      - Jacoby's (German)

      Many unsafe areas downtown
      Please; *Use* taxis
      Do not use busses
      Do not walk
