Jane Slaughter at the Metro Times reviews MEX in Bloomfield Hills this week, with a primarily positive review. She notes that Zak Sklar's menu is solid, but that the prices are a bit high compared to Detroit's many Mexican Town options (well it is Bloomfield Hills after all) and they somehow charge for chips and salsa, but the drinks are the main draw. And it's super busy, "Mex is insanely inundated and why wouldn't it be? Any young crowd would flock to a place that serves 92 tequilas and 12 mezcals — with a demented decor and a well-executed menu."

Adam O'Connor at Real Detroit Weekly reviews Rock City Eatery, with good things to say about not just the food, but the whole concept; "Nikita Santches has a pretty simple philosophy. He really just wants people to be comfortable – something that's desperately missing in today's culinary world. While most chefs are concerned with making a super awesome menu and impressing each other with swanky establishments that are slightly lacking in depth, Santches has quietly opened a comfy and delicious – and entirely unpretentious – boutique restaurant in Hamtramck." He loves the food, the atmosphere, the drinks, the dessert, and even the prices, and overall he thinks it's a place well worth visiting.
