Restaurants in Detroit

Downtown and Greektown are home to Detroit's finest restaurants, like Mosaic. Dearborn is the place for Middle Eastern food, or venture to the Suburbs for home-grown goodness at The Lark. Mediterranean-style cooking is common, thanks to the city's African, Arab and Greek-American populations. Restaurants are generally open daily from breakfast to dinner, except on Sundays when Detroiters sleep in and opt for brunch. Leave 15-20% of your bill for the waiter.
