Spring in the Motor City means many things, but a new season always means it’s time for new restaurant openings! If you consider yourself a “foodie” (and who doesn’t?), you’re going to want the lowdown on the latest and greatest restaurants in the area, as well as a few to look forward to.

Here are a few suggestions:

This contemporary soul food eatery opened in downtown Detroit mid-February and offers a menu full of Southern flavors. Cocktails are crafted with fresh squeezed juices, and the menu offers an extensive wine list.

Sweet Lorraine’s Mac n’ Brewz

A spin-off of Sweet Lorraine’s Fabulous Mac n’ Cheez, Mac n’ Brewz is located in Midtown across from Wayne State University. If you love all things beer and mac and cheese, you’ll want to make your way to this eatery, which opened at the end of February.

Tasty mac and cheese options include BLT Mac, Buffalo Chicken Mac, Cajun Shrimp Mac, Extreme Veggie Mac and Philly Cheesesteak Mac.
