Need help choosing Detroit-area restaurant gift

LindaMc | Jan 30, 2012 12:51 PM

I'm from the Detroit area but haven't lived there for over 20 years. My family is still there, and I want to give my sister and her husband, who have been through a rough time lately, a nice dinner out.

They live in Pleasant Ridge but like to go out downtown and elsewhere in the area. They're not exactly food-obsessed people, but they appreciate a good meal. He likes meat, she likes seafood. I'm looking for a nice, cosseting atmosphere, nothing too formal.

I had considered Cork, which is around the corner from their house, but the reviews seem kind of "meh" and they are not big wine drinkers. Am now considering Roast downtown and the Forest Grill and Tallulah in B'ham, but am open to other suggestions too.

Many thanks in advance for your thoughts!
