Solanus Casey Center
While dining in metro Detroit, you can sample Middle Eastern, Greek, Mexican, Italian and Polish cuisines right alongside culinary creations from renowned master chefs such as Wolfgang Puck and Michael Symon. In between, you can also grab some unforgettable barbeque, maybe a little soul food, and wash it down with a great selection of Michigan-crafted brews and crisp vinos. As if that’s not enough yummy goodness, there are also two unassuming downtown Detroit restaurants living next door to each other that both sell a little piece of heaven tucked in a bun (aka the Coney dog). No trip to Detroit is complete without sampling these dueling world-famous, chili-smothered concoctions. Soooo good. With such a cornucopia of casual and fine dining experiences on the menu, this section is sure to help you pick and choose the metro Detroit restaurants, delis, joints, cafes, taverns, etc. that you won’t want to miss.
