    The thing we come to Nicky D’s for often isn’t a coney at all. It’s corned beef. They’re as well known for it as they are for coneys. Even the sign out front proclaims the corned beef to be “famous.” The beef is tender and tangy, with just the right amount of fat-to-lean ratio. We like ours on an onion roll with crunchy, tangy colesl [...]

    Central Kitchen and Bar is a melting pot of modern American flavors. Their contemporary menu takes inspiration from regional cuisines all across the country. It takes a strong kitchen team to walk the line between upscale and casual; to put steaks and seafood on the same menu as burgers and cheese curds - and do all of them well. Central manage [...]

    With so many awesome Mexican spots in Southwest Detroit, it can be tricky to tell one delicious place from another. Combine that with the huge, multi-page menus that so many of these eateries offer, and it can be tough to figure out what you’re supposed to order. We sometimes get confused trying to remember which place has the better carne asada [...]

    It’s tough to improve upon the Detroit style coney. We’ve basically perfected the savory, meaty, tangy hot dog flavor profile. But when you’re in the mood to branch out from the traditional chili-onion-mustard combo, come to Onasis Coney Island. In addition to the classic coney and loose burger, they offer a fun variety of dogs and toppin [...]

    You can feel the history the moment you step inside the Raven Lounge & Restaurant. On the outside, the place looks like a two story house, blending in with its mostly residential surroundings. But once you’re through the front door you can feel the energy of a place that’s been showcasing some of Detroit’s best blues music for the last [...]

    In France, le petit dejeuner (literally “the little meal’) is usually a quick morning meal of coffee and toast or pastries. Le dejeuner is the longer, larger mid-day meal we’d call lunch - it used to be a two hour affair but these days it’s more like a one-hour lunch break. At Le Petit Dejeuner in Detroit, however, breakfast rules the da [...]

    You never know when a coney craving will strike. That’s why we’re thankful for spots like Detroit One Coney Island (D1), open 24-hours a day, seven days a week. That’s 168 hours a week of coney deliciousness. D1 is the second in our Coneys of Detroit series. We’re covering a different coney spot every week. It’s a little hole in the wa [...]

    We normally shy away from writing about coneys (we’ve covered a couple here and here) because there are so many all across the city, and everyone has their favorite. Who are we to tell you which secret chili recipe is better, or how many chopped onions you should want on your dog? Coney Islands are a uniquely Michigan style of restaurant. Thou [...]

    What is a nano brewery exactly? For starters, it’s smaller than a microbrewery which produce less than 15,000 barrels annually. Nanos generally produce four barrels (eight kegs) or less per batch, and many don’t brew more than one batch at a time. Since they don’t have to worry about volume and distribution, they’re free to focus on q [...]
