I'm a native Clevelander who lives in San Francisco. I'm heading back to Cleveland this week for a couple of days and that visit now includes an impromptu trip to Detroit. I'll be there this Thursday and Friday. Our launching point will be near Wayne State (which I believe is the Midtown area). We'll have a car as well as access to bikes.
This is my first visit to Detroit and I'm really looking forward to it! I want to spend my time there exploring via eating and drinking my way around the city. I'd love to know classic places worthy of a visit as well as the new food and drink scene I keep hearing about. Any stores selling local foods as well as bakeries would also be appreciated! I'm also very interested in checking out the urban farming happening there.
As this has just come up, I've started pulling recommendations from other threads here as well as reading up on what I can find online. Any guidance and recommendations from fellow Chowhounds is much, much appreciated! Thanks!
