Pastas $18-$29, entrées $18-$35
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.
The menu centers on soups and sandwiches thus far, though within a few weeks Bailey plans to add some steak and pork chop specials at dinnertime. Perhaps it’s the lack of transportation costs that keeps prices down — shopping is done on foot within the market, and virtually everything on the menu is bought within a two-block radius. A half-pound burger goes for $4.65, a bleu burger for just $5.25, and a bowl of soup for $3. Best buy: a cup of soup and half a deli sandwich for $5.
Burly Eastern Market butchers chow down at this joint when they finish work. Big burgers, daily specials, stuffed chicken breasts, baby back ribs, whitefish and smelt. Meat's the word.

The line for this Eastern Market staple often extends down the block, but it's well worth the wait. Hearty breakfasts are the specialty; meat-eaters should not miss the superb sausage.

This restaurant's beef is rich, tangy and lean, and even better paired with pastrami in a combo sandwich on rye, grilled in butter. And the corned beef reaches its apotheosis at Louie’s when made into hash, moist with plentiful onions, a $3.75 side of which is enough for three. The ham is both salty and sweet, as ham should be. And stevedores and lumberjacks will appreciate the choice of 18 omelets. Made with three eggs and covering most of a platter, they stretch the more-is-more principle to its limits.
This chattery Eastern Market deli serves lunch on weekdays and lunch and breakfast on Saturdays to a loyal crowd. The customers are happy because they're eating really good food, and there's something about sharing tables with who-knows-whom that brings out the best in people. Both breakfast and lunch menus offer original combinations of fresh ingredients that make the best veggie sammies to ever set you salivating. While you're slurping on a veggie soup — try the eggplant or the organic carrot ginger — peer over the bowl at Toby Millman's photography and printmaking from Tel Aviv. Now accepting credit cards.
Curries, fried rice, Thai salads and noodles all done in authentic Thai style. Squid and scallops, pork, beef and chicken Thai dishes. Extensive appetizer selections and tasty soups. Vegetarian entrees also. Lively setting.
Serving brilliant thin-crust pizza with imaginative fresh ingredients — even an egg — with a delectable thin crust that’s not too chewy. They serve five red pizzas and six white, meaning no tomato sauce; almost all are made with traditional ingredients, no pineapple, no taco fixings. The red sauce is supremely simple, nothing much besides some fresh-tasting though canned crushed tomatoes. The Primavera, a white, is topped with fresh tomatoes, artichokes, eggplant, red onion, mozzarella and spinach — lots of flavors. Also excellent is the housemade manicotti, a huge portion of ultra-thin pasta stuffed with ricotta and a bit of Parmigiano and topped with red sauce and mozzarella.
Daily breakfast, lunch and dinner specials. Twenty-ounce porterhouse or a full pound of crablegs for the earlybird. Roast beef and triple-decker club are a few of the "hand sandwiches." Chicken breast Alaskan and Italian sausage are listed under "knife and fork" sandwiches. Salads, soups, mess-o-mussel, jumbo shrimp, pork chops.
If you come early on a weekend morning, you might find Assaggi Bistro’s George Gize digging in to an egg dish at this unpretentious coney. They serve an egg-white vegetarian omelet with green peppers, onions, mushrooms, tomato and cheese. Or, if you need flesh with your ova, there’s the Greek omelet, with gyro meat, feta cheese, grilled onions and tomatoes. Cash only.
