If you're short on time like us and want show your mom (an O.G. DGAT) some love, there is a [...]

Table for Two: Detroit’s Most Romantic Dinner Spots

We all know that Detroit is brimming with places to get a casual bite with friends or grab a drink with co-workers — you can get the messiest Coney on any corner and a decent Thai take-out on any street downtown.

Detroit has always had an international community. Why not incorporate that into your holiday meal?

Detroit has always been an enterprising city; Motown, the Big Three, Faygo, Better Maid, and Sanders Bake Shops are quintessential self-started staples of the city. Of the things Detroit is known for, there is one forgotten treasure. During Prohibition, speakeasies and hidden bars thrived in Detroit. Amongst the music, dance, and cigar smoke, [...]

Soulfood Sunday

There are certain traditions that cross both borders and time. Things that get passed down from grandma to you; things like cherished family recipes and the art of setting a table for a proper dinner. Chef Giles and Dave Theriault, co-owners of the The Sunday Dinner Company, know about these traditions very well. In fact, they're Sunday dinner [...]

The title Iron Chef may be intimidating to some, but if you are in the D and up for an adventure, check out Iron Chef Michael Symon’s Roast in the Westin Book Cadillac Hotel.
