From the Motor City to the city where culinary dreams come true, Detroit is quickly becoming an epicurean food haven. With so many new and exciting dining options, how does one decide where to indulge? Dine Drink Detroit is in its second annual week of dining and drinking.

Dine Drink Detroit was created to provide an affordable way to experience the latest and greatest restaurants in the city. For a mere $15, you can enjoy a food option with a drink at any of the participating restaurants.  

Check out which of your favorite restaurants are participating this year.

Step into Green Dot Stables for a variety of sliders and cocktails, nestled away in south Corktown.

As a Detroit favorite, Slows Bar BQis a must for a smokin’ good meal!

Brand new to the scene is Johnny Noodle King. This is not the college Ramen you are used to.

Venture over to the up-and-coming West Village area for a meal at Craft Work for American cuisine with quality ingredients.

Take a trip to Spain when you step into La Feria. Its Spanish tapas are the real deal.
