It's Monday night. And for the first time in many many years, Detroit Lions fans are ready for some football! (Though they certainly won't be made ready by a certain song from Hank Willams, Jr. due to recent boneheaded comments). Just in time for Daaa Bears rolling into Motor City, we've revised and updated our Top 100 list of Detroit's best restaurants. In addition to the thrill of the Lions achieving relevance, Detroit fans are also excited to host the Texas Rangers in the ALCS starting Tuesday evening. If you're heading to any of these sporting contests and don't want to pay stadium prices for questionable food, here's a list of great locally-owned restaurants near Ford Field and restaurants near Comerica Park.
Quite a diverse dining scene, Detroit boasts great global options near the stadiums, from Vicente's Cuban Cuisine to Pegasus Tavern (open late so ideal for a post game bite) and Jacoby's German Biergarten, where Detroit has gotten its schnitzel fix for over 100 years. For burgers, beers and big screen TV's, Harry's Detroit is a solid spot to watch the game or stop in after it's over.
Motown is definitely singing a sweeter song than in seasons past.
