The Book Cadillac’s 24 Grille is a less formal, though no less expensive, alternative to the acclaimed meat-eaters’ paradise in the hotel’s opposite corner, Roast. It has a somewhat shorter, American menu, with just a couple of steaks and four seafood dishes. 24 Grille says that its ingredients are preservative-free and sourced locally when possible. As at many places these days, 24’s calamari are crisp and wonderful, served with capers, lemon beurre blanc and chili aioli. The dressings make the dish. The melt-in-your-mouth scallops, sweet and smoky and served with clams in the shell, are excellent. For vegetarians, there are Himalayan cabbage rolls, stuffed with grilled tofu, mushrooms and some nutty Himalayan red rice. And delicious veal meatloaf comes as a tall tower — layers of meatloaf and bacon, interwoven with layers of potato purée. 24 Grille also has a happy hour from 4 to 6 on weekdays, when wine and appetizers are half off.
Asian Corned Beef has opened a new branch at the corner of Warren and Woodward in Detroit. Named Asian Corned Beef & Ocean, this new restaurant is like the old Asian Corned Beef, which opened in 1978. Owner Hason White serves up their famous corned beef, which is prepared in an Asian style, along with some fast-food items, including their popular Asian corned beef and cheeseburger. As the name implies, the decorations inside this Cultural Center-area restaurant are related to the ocean. Fish-themed paintings and other works of art are displayed all around the 45-seat restaurant. Orders can also be placed by phone.
Bamboo's dishes have their origins all over the world, but with their own twists, and always with a feel for combinations that bring out the best of the diverse ingredients. There are four different but overlapping menus for lunch, Sunday brunch, tapas-time (4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday through Friday) and dinner. The food is very good and beautifully presented, bringing out the natural flavors of the ingredients, but also keeps them in balance. For instance, the intense creaminess and richness of a curried apple soup was toned down by the heat of the curry. Excellent desserts, and the tasting menus are a good deal. Bamboo has a full bar. Restaurant patrons get free admittance to the art gallery. Restaurant hours are 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday
Founded on the principles of elegance, creativity and freshness, Bambu has been serving for just about a year now. Lunchtime sees the largest crowds, drawn by creative panini varieties. For $9, order a Cubano panino filled with such pleasures as shaved prosciutto, honey turkey and avocado. The French Connection is packed with Black Forest ham and baby brie. Vegetarians will love the $7 Caprese panino, with its layers of fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and pesto, or the Beyond Vegetarian panino, with goat cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, pesto, artichokes and spinach. More panini come stuffed with chicken or turkey. There’'s even a Reuben panino. All of them are grill-pressed with precision. Dinner entrées ($15-$22) are adjusted daily. There are three or four on a chalkboard at the entrance of the restaurant, generally covering the typical offerings of meat, fish and pasta. One Thursday night saw our table supporting a plate of crisped organic spinach and Asiago ravioli in a tomato-basil pomodoro salsa, pesto and fresh herbs, lively with its combination of textures and flavors. A strip steak of Australian Wagyu (Kobe) beef was cooked spot-on medium-rare and garnished with thin, tender asparagus, grilled white prawns and mashed Yukon potatoes. Desserts vary on a daily basis.
For Sunday brunch, be prepared to wait at the bar for as long as a mimosa or two. But once you get your seat, you can choose from a half-dozen scrambles, omelets and frittatas, from the humble $8 vegetable scramble (mushrooms, leeks, tomatoes, spinach and garlic-herb chèvre; can be made with egg whites) to the $10 lobster Cobb omelet (smoked bacon, avocado, tomato, onion and blue cheese).
This eatery is proud of its specialty breakfasts, such as crab cakes Florentine or a crab-asparagus omelet with Hollandaise. March will feature a new menu with lots of new omelets, including a meat lover’s omelet, a wild mushroom omelet with cream cheese and a vegetarian omelet made with Egg Beaters, as well as eight others. They also serve a chocolate-covered strawberry with every check.

Fresh orange juice and fresh daisies on the tables, delicious breakfast, quick service and a kids menu. Just eight tables and four stools at the counter mean it’s usually crowded.

On the banks of the Huron River, an old English-style eatery in a country setting. Frog legs, onion pie, salads, seafood, beef and chicken dishes. A stir-fry, some schnitzel and even a Bombay curry.
Lively dining atmosphere with impeccable service and food preparation. Champps offers a large menu with something for everyone and enormous portions. A state-of-the-art video set-up shows all the favorite games — 16 TVs placed throughout the restaurant make every seat the best during a sporting event. Nightly game-show promotions each weeknight (cash and prizes!) and Thursday night karaoke. The perfect 'night out' for food, fun, family and friends!
Casual fine dining, west-coast style. Eclectic menu is highlighted by Prime Angus steaks, seafood, chops and pasta. Extensive regular and vintage wine list. Reservations recommended.
Just about everything at City Kitchen merits praise. One might quibble a bit about the price of the appetizers, but not their quality. The individual pizzas, baked in a wood-fired oven, are well worth a try, and the generously proportioned mains, most of which are priced in the low 20s, include fire-roasted Lake Superior whitefish, halibut with garlic spinach, beet coulis and whipped potatoes, pecan-crusted pickerel adorned with dried apples and cherry butter, and pan-seared sea scallops that come with those welcome oven-dried tomatoes and a mushroom risotto. Salmon, shrimp, perch, swordfish, and fish and chips, most of which are served with creative pairings of vegetables and starch, are among other maritime offerings. The wine list contains many good values for less than $30, and desserts include a tangy and smooth Key lime pie and a warm chocolaty truffle cake.
This eclectic chophouse is the United States' second-highest restaurant and is located at the top of the GM Global Renaissance Center. Coach Insignia features incomparable food, great service and a world-class wine list to accompany a panoramic view of Detroit and our Canadian neighbors. Handicap accessible; dress code: Jeans are allowed, just no athletic wear in the main dining room.
