It’s a tricky yet timeless question: “Can you recommend a restaurant?” The Eater 38 is an attempt at answering that question, not with a single answer but with many to fit all occasions and tastes. Updated quarterly, it includes not only longtime Detroit staples, restaurants with loyal followings, but also places worthy of the ultimate night out. These establishments tell the story of dining in the Motor City right now — how Detroiters are eating, where they’re gathering, and what they value in the community food system.
Removal from the Eater 38 does not mean a restaurant isn’t still great and won’t return, but allows for new entries, keeping the guide fresh, inclusive, and representative. For the latest and buzziest openings head to the heatmap. Takoi, Hazel, Ravines and Downtown (now Hazel’s), Folk, Mink, and Loui’s depart the Eater 38, while El Parian, Warda Pâtisserie, Yum Village, and Michigan & Trumbull join the list.Read More
