Hi all --
So LA chowhounder here. I'm in the Detroit area with my husband on business (yes, you read right!) for the next few months and this upcoming weekend is my husband's birthday. Looking for a good place for dinner -- not too fancy, a place where we can wear nice jeans and a top.
He's already been to Roast so we can count that out. And we really like regional cooking. If there's a good restaurant on a lake, that's a plus (but not mandatory) -- that's something we don't have in Los Angeles.
We're staying in Royal Oak (and have pretty much done all the restaurants here). Don't mind driving outside of Detroit metro - maybe 30 or 40 minutes out or even more. We'd make a day of it. We like exploring!
Oh and we like pretty much everything minus Indian. We're open on the budget too -- like it to be nice, but we really didn't bring the clothing for anything super fancy. We like good food and something specific to the region. Seafood is always good. Italian. Etc.
