Thrillist has compiled this tasty menu of …


“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.”

Show Me Detroit Tours was pleased to lead the Grosse Pointe War Memorial’s “Midtown in March Dine Around” tour today. The dessert stop was at Fourteen East in the Park Shelton, where owner Joanne Czerny (apron) served a special selection of sweets for everyone. The group of 26 also enjoyed stops in Rachel Lutz’s fabulous The Peacock Room and Frida store.

Earlier in the tour they were greeted by the very attentive hosts at The Zenith in the Fisher Building, and then on to Maccabees at Midtown and a walk around the Willis-Canfield district.
