Flowers are blooming, so it's time for a brand new Eater Detroit Heatmap. Restaurants are celebrating with openings, renovations, and new interest as people emerge from hibernation and ask "what's for dinner?". 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. The May map is once again heavy on the classic places this month, as new stories and renewed interest have made them buzzy.
The May map features among others, the highly underrated Jefferson House, the newly renovated Urban Soul, the new iteration of Southern Fires, and Rock City Eatery, who is bringing brunch to Hamtramck in a big way.
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.
