What are some good restaurants in Detroit? is a rather complex question we are asked often. The response solicits an in-depth conversation, because here in The D, the meal is just as much about the experience as it is about the food. What type of cuisine? For how many? Dining with vegetarians? What’s your budget? What type of atmosphere? There’s a lot to think about before settling on a spot.

Detroit Restaurant Week makes it easy on you. For just $30 (plus tax, gratuity and the cost of beverages), you can enjoy a three-course meal at one of Detroit’s best restaurants. From Friday, Sept. 20 to Sunday, Sept. 29, treat your taste buds to a truly Detroit dining experience.

What makes Detroit’s restaurants unique is not just the award-winning cuisine prepared by talented (even some famous) chefs; these places have stories to tell. Take Roma Cafe, for instance — it’s Detroit’s oldest restaurant, having impressed visitors since 1890. Cliff Bell’s, a world-class jazz club built in 1935, with lavish art deco insides, was featured in The Ides of March with George Clooney and Ryan Gosling. From new gastro pub Jefferson House in the newly renovated Crowne Plaza Detroit (former Hotel Pontchartrain) to the Fountain Bistro in the bustling Campus Martius Park, these participating restaurants will not disappoint.
