The Truant family thought long and hard before rebuilding after a near-disastrous fire. The results are stunning, with the old spot reborn in almost every detail from the carved woodwork in the dining room to the stainless steel kitchen. The food needed no improvement. Handmade pastas, the best veal Marsala around, as well as chicken and seafood dishes. The mostly Italian wine list is the perfect accompaniment and the service is friendly and correct at the same time.
When you go to La Cuisine, here’s what to do: Order a starter of foie gras (a feature, not a regular menu item). Although it’s not a huge portion, $18 Canadian is not really a lot for this taste sensation that everyone ought to try at least once in their lives. Bussed in from Quebec, it’s rich, rich, rich, yet melts-in-your-mouth. Served on butter-soaked toast with ladles of Madeira sauce that gild the lily.
Etched glass and marble are lavished on downtown's handsomest restaurant. Pure luxury all the way, with a completely upscale approach and a kitchen that makes virtually everything from scratch. The menu changes seasonally and is typified by such dishes as medallions of veal with Madeira sauce, rack of lamb, seafood en croute, and a pastry cart that is hard to resist. Excellent service is a hallmark of the 10-year-old restaurant that some said would not fly in Detroit. Opus One continues to prove them wrong. *****
Over-the-top detail in both decor and food sets this luxurious restaurant apart from the crowd. Chef Takashi Yagihashi, an import from Chicago, commands the crew in the huge, two-sided kitchen on the lower level, below the dramatic Victor Saroki-designed dining room where diners can be assured they are treating themselves to the area's most expensive restaurant. The a la carte menu is in a constant state of flux, as exotic ingredients ebb and flow.
