    Located in Midtown’s Majestic Theater complex, which also houses Garden Bowl and renowned music venues the Majestic Theater and the Magic Stick, the Majestic Cafe sometimes gets overshadowed by its more famous housemates.

    Detroit loves a comeback story, and this one may be our favorite.

The original Muer Seafood opened on Gratiot in 1929, in a former cigar factory owned by Joseph F. Muer. The rest [...]

    There are few foods more perfect than a well-made pizza. We think Detroit happens to make the best pies, with crispy deep dish crusts, lots of gooey cheese and robust marinara sauce. One of the best spots in the city to find a perfect Detroit-style pizza is Niki’s Pizza in Greektown. The kitchen turns out Detroit-style pizza with a thick, squa [...]

    If we can’t score tickets to see our Tigers play live, the next best thing is to hang out someplace close to the action. And there’s no location better than the Elwood Bar & Grill. Situated at the corner of Adams and Brush, right behind Comerica Park’s scoreboard, the Elwood is so close to the action you can almost hear the crack of Mi [...]

    When we told friends we were writing about Slows BBQ this week, a funny thing happened. At the mention of the name Slows, just about everyone commented on its flawless reputation for mouth-watering barbecue. But there were a surprising number who had never actually dined here.
