Nowhere on Earth has more soul than Detroit.- Mayer Hawthorne
Both my mom and I have grown up visiting Detroit on a regular basis. The Detroit that she knew was one with a bustling downtown filled with shops and gleaming department stores like Saks Fifth Avenue and Hudson’s. By the time I came along, downtown Detroit, was, for the most part, quiet and still.
It seems that finally this gem of a city is being polished and brought back to life. Detroit has a determination and creative spirit like no other city I’ve ever visited. This revitalization is happening in large part to a burgeoning food and restaurant scene.
Food artisans and restaurateurs are flocking to Detroit to start their own companies and open restaurants. There’s a creative fire fueling the city right now that’s really exciting. My mom and I’ve been having so much fun trying all of the new restaurants. This list will be part one of an ongoing Detroit restaurant series here at The Ladies McCann so stay tuned. Cheers to Detroit!
