Detroit Dining

One thing you’ll find appealing about eating in Detroit is the diversity in cuisine.  You’ll be spoiled with the selection of foods and dining options included at high-class and casual restaurants alike. 

Elegant
You’ll want to include The Whitney on your list of venues for dining in Detroit.  This Romanesque style mansion is elegant and quite ornate.  It’s decorated with Tiffany stained glass windows befitting of a cathedral.  There’s garden and indoor seating.  There’s romance and ambience.  And the entertainment ranges from chamber music to live bands.  The menu features American cuisine with seafood, pastas and mouthwatering steaks.  And the desserts resemble fine works of art.

Another excellent location for dining in Detroit is Opus One.  This award winning restaurant is known for its wonderful array of eclectic entrees.  Try the angel hair pasta with seafood or the Filet Mignon topped with crab meat. 

Tip:  If you want to indulge in sinful temptations of the utmost degree, try the apple flan.  It’s served hot with a scoop of cinnamon ice cream and chewy caramel. 

International Flavors
If you find yourself craving for the flavors of an excellent Italian meal, you won’t go wrong with Andiamo Italia for dining in Detroit.  You can choose from the five course dinner or order a la carte.  Everything from the spinach ravioli to the three cheese lasagna is fantastic.  And if you go through the wine list, you’ll find outstanding vintages from renowned wineries of Italy, France and the United States. 

Greek immigration has given Detroit the best gastronomical venues.  At the Cypress Taverna, visitors can enjoy authentic Greek cuisine focusing on specialties from the islands.  Among the top favorite dishes are the spinach pie, the grape leaves, moussaka and grilled lamb.  If you stay for the live music, you can dance around your table and as tradition has it, you can break all the plates.

Regional
If you want to dine at the most innovative restaurant in town, Hockeytown Café is it.  It’s popular among the locals and critics call it “the most fun for dining in Detroit.”  It’s not only spacious but features an ice-skating rink in the center.  It also offers a state of the art sound system, a roof top bar with live music and amazing vistas of the Comerica Park.  The menu shows photographs of famous hockey players as well as superb dinner choices like cheese quesadillas, barbecued ribs and tasty hamburgers.  There’s also a list of deli specialties including corned beef Reuben, home made soups, salads and decadent desserts.  And if you have time, you can enjoy the custom motorcycle exhibit.

For more of the superb city skyline, you’ll want to dine at The Summit Steakhouse.  It’s located on the 71st floor of the Renaissance Building
and the food is as sublime as the views.  It’s elegant, yet comfortable, and the prices are reasonable.  The steaks, of course, reign supreme on the list of signature dishes, but the seafood is another must try as it’s fresh and creatively prepared.  It’s another excellent choice for dining in Detroit.
