Spring is nowhere in site, but restaurant news and openings are just starting to pick up, which is where the Heatmap gets its restaurants. Unlike that more stable of standbys, the Eater 38, the Heatmap aims to be more current as it catches wind of the newest, most popular places to eat and drink each month, and the February map has both some new just open places, and some older restaurants back in the spotlight because of great Detroit holidays like Paczki Day and St. Patrick's Day.
The March map features The Bird & The Bread a brand new Birmingham restaurant, El Asador Steak House in Southwest, and Marais in Grosse Pointe and Torino in Ferndale because of their recent "Restaurant of the Year" wins. Classics like Polish Village Cafe and The Old Shillelagh are taking advantage of holidays to bring in old and new customers alike.
Had a less-than happy experience at one of these places? Been somewhere else that feels worthy of high praise and popular approval? Drop us a note on our tipline or leave your thoughts below. We know you will.
