I am heading back to Detroit for the first time without staying at the in law's and therefore my partner and I will be choosing our meal locations ourselves more often. We need breakfast, lunch and dinner suggestions so that we don't end up saying yes to Baker's Square.
We are very open to all great food suggestions - we love and miss Detroit style Lebanese food - its different in New York's Arabic communities; and for that matter we also miss Detroit's soul food - the more authentic the better. Other than 1 person not loving veggies we have no restrictions - she is very flexible and adventurous. We are comfortable at Eleven Madison Park and the authentic Vietnamese dive on Jerome Avenue in the Bronx so please do not hold back on suggestions because the place is a dive or expensive.
(By way of background, we are currently New Yorkers, 1 of us a native, the other a native Detroiter.)
I will be drinking my fill of Vernor's which is not available in NYC while i visit. ; )
