Outdoor Dining in Detroit: If the weather still agrees with the Motor City come late September and early October, don’t miss an opportunity to take advantage of some of Detroit’s best outdoor dining locations.

Detroit Microbreweries: Beer is now as classy as wine, and Detroit has plenty of options for a post-dinner pint, including Atwater Brewery, Motor City Brewing Works, Detroit Beer Co. and many more fantastic craft brewers.

Detroit Cinema: Detroit Restaurant Week is the perfect time for dinner and movie, with venues including the Detroit Film Theatre, Corktown Cinema, Redford Theatre, The Magic Bag, Ford Drive-in and Compuware Arena Drive-in Theatre.

Detroit Casinos: Detroit Casinos and hotels are favorites during Restaurant Week, proudly serving up food, cocktails and entertainment at MGM Grand Detroit, MotorCity Casino and Greektown Casino.

As culinary elites and excited diners flock to Detroit, we recommend you make reservations, though they’re not mandatory. Learn more at the Detroit Restaurant Week Facebook page. And if Restaurant Week isn’t quite your speed, try some of Detroit’s best burgers and famous Coney Dogs — there’s something for everyone.
