16. Highlands
400 Renaissance Ctr., Floors 71 & 72, Detroit; 313-877-9090
“Had a great first experience. The food and drinks were absolutely amazing! I am a very picky eater so the menu was different and I was unsure how to feel about it. The beef tartare was good for a first time person, flavorful and unique. The homemade ravioli was delicious with just enough cheese and a wonderful sauce. The skirt steak melted in your mouth, so tender.” - Noelle S.

15. Big Rock Chop House
245 S. Eton St., Birmingham; 248-647-7774
“Amazing. Incredible. Space is huge, beautiful decor. Warm, inviting, classy without feeling uber modern/sterile. Lots of warm wood and unique lighting. Aaron was our server and he was magnificent. Attentive and friendly, without being overbearing.  Tables are spaced well for covid, everything was clean clean clean.
The food. Oh my, the food. The charcuterie board was the perfect starter. So many cheeses paired perfectly with the meats and *delicious* chutney. There were 2 of us, but 4 could have had plenty.
I had the filet, med rare, and it was cooked to perfection. The flavors! Seasoning was just right. Maybe the best steak I’ve ever had.  My partner had the sea bass, and while he liked it, one bite of my steak and he had selection envy. Had the mushrooms and brussel sprouts as sides and they complimented everything beautifully.
Portions are quite generous, we took plenty home. We have found a new favorite place.”

“What a gem!! The food and service were both excellent! It was the first time here for us but definitely a place we will come back to. The waitress was personable and spot on with her recommendations.  I had the Delmonico steak which was cooked perfectly at the temp I had requested.  The other dish was the halibut which was tender and tasty. I had the chocolate torte for dessert (can't leave a proper review without having dessert, yes?)and it was chocolate decadence.  My heartiest recommendation!!” - Peter L.
