It’s pretty much guaranteed that when arriving in a new city, the timeless question: “Can you recommend a restaurant?” will come up. While it’s impossible to capture the entirety of a city’s dining scene, the Eater 38 attempts to answer that question with a number of insights to fit most 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 restaurants 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. Pie Sci and Joe Louis Southern Kitchen depart the Eater 38, while Barda and Bar Pigalle join the list. Make your case for your favorite restaurant in the comments on Twitter, Facebook, or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
