Restaurant Week in Detroit

Yes, that's right -- Detroit's inaugural Restaurant Week kicks off this Friday, and it promises to be a great event for the city. A few years ago, an event like this would've been impossible to pull off, but Detroit's restaurant scene has made major strides and we now have an impressive collection of restaurants to celebrate.

Here's how it works: Ten nights, 17 restaurants, and minimum three-course meals for $27. Plus, some will offer specially priced wine pairings. Beverages, taxes and tip are extra.

The lineup of restaurants:
  • 24Grille Westin Book Cadillac Detroit
  • Andiamo Detroit Riverfront - GM Renaissance Center
  • Atlas Global Bistro - Midtown
  • Coach Insignia – GM Renaissance Center
  • Cuisine – New Center
  • Da Edoardo Foxtown Grille – Fox Theatre Building
  • Detroit Fish Market @ Paradise Valley
  • Forty-Two Degrees North – Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center
  • Iridescence – Motor City Casino-Hotel
  • Mosaic Restaurant – Greektown
  • Opus One - Downtown
  • Rattlesnake Club – Stroh River Place
  • Roast – Westin Book Cadillac Detroit
  • Saltwater – MGM Grand Detroit
  • Seldom Blues – GM Renaissance Center
  • The Whitney – Midtown
  • Wolfgang Puck Grille – MGM Grand Detroit

The event runs Sept. 18-27, and I hear that spots are filling up fast, so it's a good idea to make reservations asap. We plan to get out a few times to experience our first Restaurant Week in Detroit. Hope you do, too. If you go, come back and comment here and tell me what you think.


  1. We have a similar event in Toronto - summer and winter-licious. A great way to try places you might not otherwise be able to afford.

  2. There's now talk of doing spring and fall events, because this first one has been so successful. We took two of our kids to Cuisine on the first night, and it was terrific. Think the kids liked it too!
