Detroit Restaurant Week returns Friday
Ready, set, dine. The bi-annual Detroit Restaurant Week kicks off Friday with $30 fixed-price menus at 17 Detroit businesses.
Each fine dining establishment has created a three-course menu (starter, entree and dessert) with multiple options. At Ottava Via in Corktown, for example, choose from a chopped salad, foccacia di recca (Italian cheeses) or arancini (rice balls) for the first course. Entrees are truffle butter pasta, ragout ala bolognese, half a strip loin or half a branzino (fish). Dessert is a selection of gelato.
At Michael Symon's Roast, a favorite destination during Restaurant Week, start with octopus, a mixed green salad or house charcuterie. Next, a choice of seared scallops, wood rotisserie "beast," sirloin or torchio pasta.
For more choices, make reservations at Andiamo Riverfront. Nine entrees are offered, including chicken marsala, plank-roasted salmon and New York strip steak.
Other participating restaurants include 24Grille at the Westin Book Cadillac, Angelina Italian Bistro, Da Edoardo Foxtown Grille, Cuisine, Detroit Seafood Market, Fountain Bistro, the Grille Midtown, La Dolce Vita, PRISM at Greektown Casino, Roma Cafe, Santorini Estiatorio, Top of the Ponch, the Whitney and Wolfgang Puck Pizzeria & Cucina at MGM Grand Detroit.
The special menu are available Friday through May 10 (Mother's Day). Reservations are strongly encouraged, and should be made by calling the restaurant. Most of the menus are posted on the Detroit Restaurant Week Facebook page. Visit detroitrestaurantweek.com and click on the Facebook link.
