The Hottest Restaurants in Detroit Right Now, November 2014

View as Map

Welcome to the November Eater Detroit Heatmap. Even though the weather is beginning to turn chilly, there are plenty of new and hot restaurants in the city serving up something warm. Unlike the stalwart collection captured by the Eater 38, the Heatmap aims to pinpoint the most popular places to eat and drink each month.

This month's highlights include the Craft Work, which introduced some interesting late night offerings in October, as well as the soon to open Selden Standard in the Cass Corridor.

Did we miss your favorite new restaurant? Been somewhere else that feels worthy of high praise and popular approval? Drop us a note on our tipline or leave your thoughts below.
