Fall 2010 Edition of Detroit Restaurant Week

Attention Food Lovers! Time is running out, make your reservations for Detroit Restaurant Week now. The Fall 2010 edition of DRW kicks off at the end of the week and runs September 24th through October 3rd.

Detroit’s finest restaurants will offer a three-course dinner for $28 (excluding beverages, tax, and tip). This is a great time to explore a few restaurants you’ve never been to before or to revisit some old favorites.

Crain’s Detroit Business is sponsoring a Detroit Restaurant Week preview at Mosaic on September 23, 2010 from 5 p.m.-8 p.m. The preview will feature complimentary appetizers and drink specials. RSVP to attend the DRW preview at Mosaic.

There are two features on the website that make my heart smile. First, under the After Dinner tab, they offer suggestions on events to check out after your meal for each of the 10 nights of Detroit Restaurant Week. Second, the restaurant menus are on the website, not on a PDF that you have to download. Seriously, this little thing made me so happy!

So, how does a foodie decide which of the 18 Detroit fine dining establishments to check out?

Do you go with an old classic like The Whitney, Roma Café, or the Caucus Club? Or, do you check out one of the newer heavy hitters such as Roast, Atlas Global Bistro, or the Detroit Seafood Market? How about the incredible views of Detroit and Canada from Coach Insignia?

Decisions, decisions, decisions.

If you’re still undecided, take a look at The Hungry Dudes previews of DRW and view their Flickr stream.

Which restaurants are on your list for Detroit Restaurant Week? Have you made your reservations yet?

Keep me posted on your experiences!

I'm pretty frugal, but restaurant week is so worth the splurge! I've loved it in the past, so we're going big and hitting four restaurants this year: Roast, Coach Insignia, Iridescence and Wolfgang Puck.

I'm so excited - maybe I'll see you there! Enjoy!

Not sure where to go..we missed it last year so I definitely want to try and make it this year. Been to Roast a few times so probably not there. Cuisine is a pretty cool place, as long as they don't stick you in that lame back room. Never been to Coach Insignia (in it's current incarnation) or The Caucus Club.
Decisions,decisions.

Having moved to Detroit just three days ago, the timing of DRW couldn't be better! We're trying to decide between Roast and The Whitney and may just go to both. I feel like a tourist in my new city. This is a great way to promote eating locally and supporting our Detroit businesses!

Kelly,
That's awesome that you're going big! Enjoy your 4 stops on the DRW train. It must be even better for you now that Quicken has moved downtown.

Schmee,
I hear you, it's hard to choose. I still haven't decided which ones we're going to hit up.

Julie,
Welcome to Detroit! Roast and The Whitney are both great options. Let me know what you think.
