Motown, pyramids and gastro delights
As might be expected from the industrial Midwest, some of the best food in Detroit is of the all-American variety. Not that that means the options are limited: The Whitney is thought by many to offer the best food in the classiest environment. While "Old Detroit" style strip steak is a fixture on the menu, the food also has Asian and Middle East influences. The Whitney is not just for dinner, either: they also do a very reasonable four-course brunch including a cocktail for $40. Another longtime local favourite is Rattlesnake on the riverfront. Alongside the steaks, ribs and chops you would expect are imaginative twists such as sea scallop and lobster "reverse ravioli". Fishbone's in Greektown is a popular Cajun, seafood and sushi restaurant that has live music at the weekends, while those seeking to unwind over an informal drink should head to Traffic Jam & Snug, a microbrewery with its own in-house bakery.
