Just got back from two days in the Detroit area. I was staying in the 'burbs, but was in downtown a lot of the time. Great place for eating, and a fascinating place to visit.
Bloomfield Hills: The Unique Deli, the restaurant at the Radisson where I was staying, was probably the best hotel restaurant I have ever seen. Perfect combination of Jewish Deli and Diner, friendly as can be, and perfectly cooked food: Turkey Rueben, Turkey Hash, Eggs, Lox, Salads that were wonderful. I wish this was next to my house.
Mexicantown: El Borzon. The menu is Mexican on the left side, Italian on the right side, delicious on both sides. A rollicking sort of place, all smiles. I had great Fritto Misto with a wonderful tangy tomato dipping sauce, a taco and gnocci, both solid and fresh ingredients, and a superb chicken pipian (green mole).
Clawson: Shilla, delicious Korean food. Great BBQ (not at the table), beef ribs, chicken. Wonderful little fried cod pieces (a Korean companion ordered everyting). Great Pan Chan (the little side dishes that are always there) especially a fish cake sliced thin and dressed with pepper and vinegar.
Dearborn El Ameer: Perfect Lebanese food. This is just scratching the surface of Dearborn. Go to the supermarket across the street as well, it's incredible.
Please go to Detroit and see for yourself. If you haven't been you can't imagine what the place looks like. It's easy to root for the place, because the people are so nice, and it's mind-boggling to try ti imagine what comes next for that city.
