Detroit Restaurants Help
Any Detroit restaurants dining experience must include a visit to Greektown. The atmosphere, the energy, and the smells of Monroe Street simply pull you right into the restaurants. Our favorites here include the New Parthenon, Pegasus Taverna, and the Olympia Restaurants. Sure, I may be partial to these as they were my favorites growing up some 30 years ago, but traditional ethnic food is just that, traditional, so why would I presume to undermine such a wonderful tradition! Regardless of which wonderful place you decide to dine make sure you experience The spanakotiropita (spinach cheese pie) saganaki ("flaming cheese"), a platter of lamb chops, octopus and baklava.
For Mexican restaurants in Detroit there is no substitute for Mexican Town located right downtown. This is some of the most authentic Mexican food I have ever had. The Margaritas certainly add to the appeal.
Detroit restaurants also serve up some of the countries best pizza. Thats right I said pizza. Although Chicago and New York are better known for their pizza I would put Detroit pizza up slice to slice. Among Detroits best is Pizza Papolis. Their Chicago style pizza is second to none. Expect a wait during the summer months as I am certainly not alone in my reccomendation but dont worry, its well worth the wait.
Detroits version of the Seinfelds soup Nazi is another Detroit favorite - Zoup which has several locations around the city. Nothing can warm your heart and break those Michigan winters like a faboulus soup from Zoups!
For the sports diners there is no substitute for Hockeytown Café. Located across the street from Fords Field this favorite of all sports lovers is in the heart of it all. Their hockey rink style bar complete with a frosty metal top adds a perfect compliment to the sports orientated décor. For sports bar food this unique Detroit mainstay will not disappoint.
