Anyone can show up here. Detroit's only late night jazz club serving up Cajun catfish and red beans and rice all night long. It's not common to find a bar where everyone seems to know each other and yet newcomers don't feel excluded. Dozens of regulars turn up Thursdays for the open mic jazz jam sessions. Bert's serves the music fans bargain-price soul food from rows of steam tables: meat and two sides for nine bucks, or up to $25 for a whole slab of ribs. In keeping with Bert's bare-bones, working-class atmosphere, their food is more down-home than much of the soul food you find in restaurants, which has often been upgraded from its humble origins.
"Carl's Chop House is the oldest, most beloved steakhouse in Detroit - a city landmark for more than 60 years. Nationally renowned for its blue ribbon steaks, chops and prime rib, Carl's also features fresh seafood and live Maine lobster, and our award-winning wine list completes the perfect dining atmosphere. Afterward, use our free shuttle service to downtown casinos, sporting events and theatres." Carl's Chophouse is the only Detroit steakhouse that can boast sending 60 boxes of cuts to Paris last year. Their entire banquet space can hold 1,000 diners in one sitting. Since 1920, this has been the place to bring that first date, get engaged, or just catch up with the folks. Gift certificates are available.

You can tell by the bottlenecked line of glimmering Jags, Beemers, Mercedes and SUVs lined up for valet parking that this is a nightspot where the Motor City’s elite come to meet. The food’s OK, but that ain’t the point; it’s the tailored clientele and top-shelf booze that really sets Flood’s apart. And when the band kicks on, the place really starts to thumpin’. Precaution: Don't wear jeans and flip-flops.

Irish pubs, which have long been a feature of the American drinking scene, have become a worldwide phenomenon, flourishing in such unlikely venues as Moscow and Tokyo. And so it makes sense that the Blarney Stone's everyday menu is all-American pub grub. The Susie-Q-Fish & Chips dinner ($10.95) is based on the original recipe of the celebrated drive-in restaurant. Burton fries his freshly-cut scrod encased in a secret-recipe batter that emerges as a thick, crispy but surprisingly light crust, accompanied by house-made tartar sauce and Susie's vinegar-based cole slaw. Try the order of five flavorful burger sliders ($5.95) - with pickles, onions and a tomato-mustard sauce. There are 10 other burger varieties, including, again for the health-conscious, bison or turkey.
Stepping into the newly restored art deco live jazz bar with an even more recently opened kitchen is to arrive in another era. Before the stage, the main area is separated into two spaces: One with round, candle-lit tables, the other, a stunning curved bar. All this sits below massive barrel-vaulted ceilings. All this ambience comes from pricey restoration work done in 2006 to make today’s Cliff Bell’s look like the Cliff Bell’s of 1935. That and the way they mix a cocktail. Neither cheap nor fast, mixed drinks are crafted old-school, more for taste than ease of production. With everything from a standard fillet of beef tenderloin to cassoulet, the French-inspired eclectic food menu speaks for itself. Try the duck confit on a buttermilk biscuit with cranberry jam for a small plate reduction of Thanksgiving dinner. Hedonists will go for a chunk of tender braised pork belly (otherwise known as bacon when cured and smoked) that comes plated with a rich, spicy sweet cider sauce, roasted fingerling potatoes and a pinch of cracklings for good measure.

The new Tom’s Oyster Bar has opened at the corner of Beaubien and Jefferson, across from the Renaissance Center. With its tin ceiling, dark paneling and blue-and-white checkered tablecloths, the restaurant creates the feel of an authentic New England chowder house. The large, U-shaped bar is accented with brass railings and is surrounded by tables; there’s plenty of room for socializing with friends and colleagues. The well-stocked bar offers an extensive wine list and a fine assortment of microbrews.

Check the blackboard for a list of the daily specials; they include six ever-changing varieties of raw oysters, sold individually for $1.95. Try one of each variety in the raw oyster sampler ($8.95), or baked, Rockefeller-style. The oyster bar also serves several other hot and cold appetizers, from Maryland crab cakes to smoked whitefish to Tom’s famous clam chowder; the main menu features a large selection of entrees with an emphasis on seafood — up to 20 fresh items daily. Try satisfying and warm soups including Tom's clam chowder, seafood chowder, crawfish bisque or "seafood chilli."

On a normal evening, this popular Mexicantown eatery often has a dining crowd filing its three rooms downstairs, spilling over onto the second floor, drawn by its large portions and inexpensive menu. Because it closes at 2 a.m., it doesn't draw those who wander from the bar late, but it can be quite busy after midnight, depending on what's happening downtown. And thanks to Xochi's liquor license, your friends can keep on tippling while you enjoy a restorative burrito, enchilada or the "super nachos" with ground beef and diced veggies smothered in melted cheese and jalapenos.
Grapevine-wrapped pillars, classical background music and jeweled murals. Entrees prepared to order. Vegetable broth-based French onion soup, bay scallops poached in vermouth. Warm salad of duck confit and lobster. Pastries are beautiful to behold.

Baker's bills itself as "The world's oldest jazz club," and, in the club's 76-year history, almost every jazz musician of national importance has played its bandstand. Baker's complements the music with some amazing down-home cooking, their catfish being a true showstopper. Live entertainment nightly, with metro Detroit's finest local musicians every weekend.
