Seeking car show dining guidance (round 2!)

SouthernGent | Jan 10, 201411:07 AM

Its time to buy a new car again and this year's show looks like there are going to be a million cool things I haven't seen before, so we're heading back to your fair city. Last visit ( ), we did a Coney taste-off and ended up with our fine dining night at Roast. This year I've got three days and nights and a rental car, so I've got more options open this time. We are staying at the hotel where Roast is located, but I'm not adverse to driving if it is worth the trip!

One thing I always like to do is to hit any real local specialties that I haven't had elsewhere. Clearly, I have to get a Detroit pizza. It seems that Supino is the most famous, although Buddy's has its advocates as well. Leaning towards Supino since its pretty close to downtown. Anything else uniquely Detroit I should look for? Paczkis? Any place that strikes you as a must-do even if the food isn't necessarily a regional thing?

It sounds like Roast is still going strong and I have very fond memories of my last trip there. Assuming my friend loses track of his credit card or I find the local poker players inferior to me, any other high end joints I should make an effort to check out in addition or instead?

I assume Detroit has also figured out that if they add an ingredient or two that I've never heard of to a cocktail, they can charge three times as much for it. Any can't-miss craft cocktail spots?
