15 NEW SANDWICHES THAT ARE ALREADY DETROIT CLASSICS

“With so many nationally famous sandwiches – the Yardbird at SLOWS BAR BQ, the chicken shawarma at Bucharest Grill, the Mudgie at Mudgie’s, Green Dot’s mystery meats, all of the corned beefs – it’s hard for a new sandwich to “steak” (get it???) its claim to fame in Detroit. So, we looked specifically at restaurants that opened in the last couple of years for the best of Detroit’s new class of sandwiches.”

Watch the Chicago Tribune video.

“Make no mistake — Chicago isn’t Detroit. In Chicago, a businessman couldn’t buy up and renovate dozens of vacant historic high rises in the city’s center and fill them with more than 13,000 employees, all while transforming the surrounding public areas.

But when it comes to applying creative thinking to seemingly intractable urban ills, Detroit may provide Chicago a dose of inspiration.”

Wondering what to eat or drink after viewing the Detroit Institute of Arts’ special Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo exhibition? The DIA invited Detroit restaurants and bars to offer menu items with the artists in mind; here’s what they came up with.

Antietam, 1428 Gratiot Ave.
El Poco Querido, a cocktail inspired by Kahlo’s masterpiece “The Wounded Dear,” made with Espolon tequila, shaken and served in a classic short-stemmed glass with an edible flower garnish. The drink was designed to pay tribute to the legendary pelea de gallos (fighting cocks) and Rivera and Kahlo’s sometimes heated relationship.
