Detroit - the Lark atmosphere

phoodee | Jun 8, 2008 09:31 PM

I've read many old posts but still have a couple of questions regarding a celebration dinner for a family member in Detroit. I've decided on the Lark, that is, if they have reservations available as I understand it's quite small. But, my question that I can't answer from the Lark's website is regarding the atmosphere - the pictures didn't really help me.
My family member appreciates food but is not a foodie in the usual sense - she may prefer a more hip atmosphere and lesser food than I would, for example. So - my choice of which restaurant (other choices I've compiled from the board include Forte, Whitney, Opus One, Tribute) will depend on what you all tell me about the Lark's atmosphere - stuffy, old, etc.? The food at the Lark sounds fantastic but I just want your opinion on whether or not the atmosphere takes away from the food for people who might be a bit more interested in the feel of the place compared to the typical foodie.
Thanks in advance
