Detroit - need recommendations near Milliken State Park Marina

CurryLover | Feb 18, 201208:42 PM

We will be coming up the Detroit River from Lake Erie and we plan to dock at Milliken State Park Marina for one night in May as part of a multi-day excursion. We'll have bikes on board & plan to arrive late in the morning in time for a lunch destination. I'm aware of Eastern Market but am wondering if there are any other culinary gems within walking/biking distance of the marina??? We'll also need some dinner recommendations within walking distance of the marina - is it safe to walk near the river front at night or should we plan on bringing food to grill/cook on the boat & just stay near the boat/marina?? Not interested in walleye/perch b/c we have an amply supply of favorite places around Lake Erie that serve fresh walleye/perch. Interested in Middle Eastern food and anything unique to Detroit that we shouldn't miss.
