Best Fine Dining in Disguise: Rock City Eatery; 11411 Joseph Campau, Hamtramck; 248-633-3072

Upon entering Hamtramck’s Rock City Eatery, you’ll notice mismatched chairs, flatware in Mason jars, and other DIY touches that might make you think the restaurant’s food is as scrappy and homey as its decor. But one look at the menu, with duck eggs here and pork belly there and all kinds of eclectic, internationally influenced dishes in between, will make you do a double take. Fine-dining-caliber food is the name of the game at Rock City, but without the prices to match; most of the shareable plates ring in at around $10, leaving you with plenty to spare for a few $4 cocktails.
