Help me, I'm moving to Detroit

david de berkeley | Jul 20, 2005 12:14 AM

Howdy Chowhounds,

I am moving to Detroit at the end of August. I am only in town for a year, so I want to get as much out of the year as possible. I know nothing about Detroit at all.

I am working downtown, so I would like to live somewhere within driving distance.

Is there a neighborhood that is good for chowhounding? Downtown seems like it may be a little thin, although I have heard that the Greek and Mexican neighborhoods are close by.

Dearborn seems good for Middle Eastern food.

Is the area near Wayne State a good area to live/eat? How about Ferndale? Is there a reason everyone keeps recommending Ferndale?

I'm just looking for a neighborhood with good eats, and some divey places to whet my whistle.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
