Taste Your Way Through the City: Fall Restaurant Weeks of Metro D

By: Amber Ogden | September 18, 2015

Ready your appetite, Metro Detroiters, it’s fall restaurant week season! Detroit Restaurant Week begins today and runs through Sunday, Sept. 27, while Plymouth Restaurant Week kicks off on Friday, Sept. 25 and goes until Saturday, Oct. 3.

Both will provide a taste of each city and delve into its many restaurant offerings.

The 13th edition of Detroit Restaurant Week offers three course meals for $25 or $35 per person. The nearly 30 participating eateries include 24Grille, Centaur, Cuisine, Roast and The Whitney.

Dana Boyette, manager of Detroit Restaurant Week, said that some of Detroit’s newer restaurants, including Townhouse Detroit, Gold Cash Gold and Chartreuse, are participating for the first time.

“This is a chance for the chefs and kitchen staffs to really get creative and ‘color outside the lines’ so to speak, and really highlight the freshest, most exciting seasonal ingredients,” he said.

There’s something for everyone, including vegetarians, as all participating chefs will offer a meat-free option, according to Boyette.

“It’s a lofty challenge to create appealing appetizers and entrees without using meats as a staple, and still have it be a value for our guests, and delicious, too,” he said.

Adam O’Connor, event coordinator with the Metro Times, said Plymouth Restaurant Week is a great opportunity to expose potential regulars to a collection of the city’s delicious restaurants.

“An event like this—one that doesn’t require reservations and has a prix-fixe menu already determined—really brings out the folks that may not necessarily have made the time to stop out otherwise,” he said.

A few of the participating restaurants include Compari’s, Fiamma Grille, Ironwood Grille, Sean O’Callaghan’s and Barrio. Each will provide a three course pre-fixe meal for $15, $25 or $35 per person.

Due to the diverse group of restaurants, you’ll no doubt find something to satisfy your tastes.

“Whether it’s vegan curry at The Sardine Room, fish and chips at Sean O’Callaghan’s or Mexican street corn at Barrio, you’ll be able to try menu items for a great price,” O’Connor said.

No matter which fall restaurant week you choose to attend, get out there and try some of Metro Detroit’s best cuisine!
