Steve's Backroom - DTW - on Jefferson

First visit on Saturday night, with three friends that have trustworthy

First impressions:

- Parking could be a real problem, if the restaurant gets busy.

- Not an upscale operation. Not a downscale
operation. The photo featured on their webpage
is a beauty shot of their front room/bar area.
It was closed on Saturday @ 7PM.

Arrived @ 7PM and promptly seated at a table
for five. The front room was not being used.
The back room was not full.

Server was attentive and knowledgeable.

Appetizers were good. The portion size of the
"large" appetizer was unexpectedly small, for a
$13 appetizer.). Tabbouleh, baba ghannouj,
cheese, olives & meatless grape leaves were
good. Hoummos was quite bland. Also ordered
fool mudammas ... good. Some of the bread was
fresh/warm from the oven; some, not. Would
have like to see 5 grape leaves on the plate
for our party of five.

The server was a teenie bit aggressive in
trying to get us to order entrees. Had to wave
her off several times when she interrupted.

Entrees were competent, but the flavors were
muted when compared to what is typically served
in Dearborn and W. Bloomfield.

Will I return? No. The food was not worth the
trip from W. Bloomfield. If I lived in the
area, maybe.
