Restaurants in Detroit

I'm coming down to Detroit for the game against SJ this weekend. We are staying in a Holiday Inn Express, specifically 1020 Washington Boulevard.


Can I get some restaurant recommendations that are maybe pretty close to where I'm staying? I'd prefer some kind of Italian grill or Italian restaurant.

Andiamos in the Renaissance Center is a good, more upscale italian restaurant. There is also Mario's on Cass Rd in Midtown (about a mile north of your hotel...wouldn't walk that mile in particular but taxis are cheap and the area around it is nice). If you like other Mediterranean food, greektown has a lot of great restaurants and is safe walking distance from your hotel (20 min?). There are a LOT of great restaurants that are around downtown and midtown (university district) if you are interested in anything other than Italian. Have fun and be safe, Detroit is fun and safe in the busier areas but it's got it's reputation for a reason.

You should go to Roma.

It's in the Eastern Market. Also, Angelina Bistro might be good.

'Slows BBQ' on Michigan Ave is a local favorite. It's really really damn good and has been featured on Food Network a few times. They also have a take-out place in Mid-town.

Motor City Brewery has AWESOME pizza. It is a brewery but I don't think you need to be over 21 to get in there.

You'll be fine. Pizza Papalis is a popular pizza joint down here as well. I've never heard anyone say a bad thing about Slow's BBQ, as mentioned above. If you're into that I'd say go there. I think Slow's is about half a mile further in the opposite direction than PP is, FWIW. Not sure if you're walking or not.

It's definitely bigger than it looks, though don't rule out the other options!

If you like high-end BBQ, you can not do any better than Slows.

You'll have to call and make reservations, but it is the bomb-diggity.

I'm not a mac-n-cheese expert by any means, but Slows' is killer. If you enjoy BBQ then the chances are that you will very much enjoy that place. I've actually never had the Chuck Norris, but i'll give 2 thumbs up to their banana pudding.

If you're looking for another place for a quick snack, check out the famous coney islands, American and Lafayette. They're literally side-by-side so you can get a coney from each and see which one you think is better. They've also been on the food networks before.

Enjoy the trip.

Traffic Jam and Snug by Wayne State is a treasure.

Don't listen to people who tell you to be afraid or get as fast as possible. The city is empty, just avoid turning off main roads and you'll be totally safe downtown.

Not one mention of Pegasus in Greektown, interesting. If you want to eat good, go to Pegasus.

Any idea if Detroit Seafood Market's a good place? It sure looks like one. The last time I was in Detroit it was just around the corner. I didn't have time to go there, but it looked like a decent restaurant. Doesn't seem like the cheapest place, but if it's a good one I'll check it out the next time I visit Detroit.

Also if you feel like spending time in the casinos, they have some pretty damn good buffets inside.

The Mac n cheese is great. Slow's is really, really good, but plan on a 45 min wait to get a table because there is always a wait.

Also, a little bit north on Woodward is Union St, also a great place to eat. if you like hot food, try the Dragon Eggs, they're awesome.
