So, I know you hit up every place on our last roundup of new restaurants in metro Detroit. Congratulations! Good for you! You did it! In light of that, I have some great news for you. There are always new restaurants and bars opening up in the area and I have a new roundup of places to put your taste buds to the test. From bars to bakeries, here are five new places to check out in metro Detroit.
Taking a spot on Detroit Free Press’ Top 10 New Restaurants of the Year is no easy feat, especially when you factor in that Otus Supply was open for less than a month by year’s end (Detroit Free Press’ list only considers establishments opened in the previous calendar year). Otus Supply is visually striking and tastefully designed from the decor to the menu, featuring mostly small plates and oven-baked pizza, in addition to its beer and wine selection.
As the name implies, Bad Luck Bar set out to do one thing: craft your perfect cocktail. And with the cheapest drink clocking in at $18 (aptly named “Death”), the perfect cocktail is what you’re going to get. The price shouldn’t scare away drink connoisseurs as the expense is directly related to the rarity of the ingredients involved.
Adding to the cocktail scene is Red Corridor, which opened in the former Casey’s Pub location in Corktown last December. With constantly changing specials, like “‘90s hip-hop night” offering $4 gin & juice drinks, you’ll want to keep an eye on this one’s Facebook page to get the best drink deals in town.
The self-described “upscale-casual American dining” restaurant, Chef’s Table 12, gets its name comes from Tribute, which occupied the same space until it closed in 2009. Sitting at “The Chef’s Table” at Tribute was an honor and the new owners wanted to pay tribute…to Tribute. This time around, “The Chef’s Table” will seat 12 guests who will receive a seven-course degustation menu with drink pairings.
We all know about Avalon Breads in Detroit. Now, you can enjoy the delicious, fresh baked goods of Avalon Breads in Ann Arbor. Located on E. Liberty, the Ann Arbor location opened on December 15 last year and not only serves delicious sandwiches, salads and more, but they also have several beers on tap and wine by the glass or bottle.
