The New Foodie Mecca

7 Jan

Yep, it’s Detroit. That’s according to this article in The Washington Post.  The Post touts Motown as the place for new restaurants and top chefs from across the country. But, Detroiters are already in the know.

Mark Guarino writes, “Detroit is in the midst of a culinary transformation.”

“Rock-bottom housing stock and an emerging generation of young restaurateurs and chefs settling in to experiment have brought new restaurants, breweries, tasting rooms, cocktail bars, pop-up events and quirky lunch spots promising nutritious food — in neighborhoods where the only option to eat had previously been fast food,” he adds.

Guarino lists many of the restaurants Motown Savvy has written about already like Chartreuse and Gold Cash Gold.


And in today’s New York Times Style Section, there is an article on Shinola.

Great press, great city.

    Carla — HELLO! Are you loving Florida? Don and I will be in Delray Beach Jan. 28-Feb. 5 for a mini family reunion. You’re not far, are you? Maybe we can have lunch?

    FYI: Editor of the Washington Post’s Style section (where that story ran) is my old friend Chris Ledbetter, who was the Arts editor in Dayton with me, then moved to be the Arts/Entertainment editor at the Free Press. She really liked Detroit and is behind the renaissance of the city, too.

    Happy, healthy 2016!
