    • Cards Accepted

    There are three reasons we love to visit Plaka Cafe in Greektown: the service, the french toast, and the jungle juice. Yes, jungle juice. More on that later. Open 24 hours a day, this hole-in-the-wall diner gets packed when partiers pour out of Old Shillelagh, Level Two, and St. Andrew’s. It’s also a popular stop on game days. The breakfast [...]

    It’s not often that the phrase “white linen service” is accompanied by an adjective like playful, but that’s exactly how we’d describe Iridescence. The crown jewel of Motor City Casino is refined but also a little sassy. Iridescence has been raking in accolades for its stellar service, food, and views. A two-tiered dining room offers j [...]

    • Gameday Shuttle
    • Live Music
    • Outdoor Patio
    • Cards Accepted

    During the day, the exterior of Greektown’s Old Shillelagh looks pretty unassuming. A simple brick building with a green, shamrock clad awning, it might foolishly be mistaken for a sports bar. But Detroiters in-the-know understand that Old Shillelagh is a destination unlike any other. Retired Detroit police officer John Brady, a Dublin native, [...]

    In Greek mythology, the golden fleece was a golden-haired, winged ram sought by the hero Jason and his band of Argonauts. Today, it represents the gyro holy grail: a tender, perfectly seasoned cut of lamb sandwiched between a soft, fluffy pita. But this Golden Fleece is no myth. You’ll find it in Greektown, and it serves up Detroit’s best gyros [...]

Orchid’s dining room is airy and spotlessly clean. Portions are generous; save your leftovers for tomorrow’s lunch. The lunch rush is crowded with downtown pro [...]
