17. Yum Village
    6500 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-334-6099
    
    
    “Absolutely amazing. This is my first experience eating African food & I just want more. I've had jerk chicken, but the Lemon Jerk Chicken was so well flavored. I'm hooked on Jollof rice & Maafe. I love Panang Thai curry & this felt like the African equivalent & quite possibly a step above. Hearty, delicious, and amazing when you mix them together.
    
    If you don't try this place, you just don't want good food. Top Notch” - Sean C.

The Whitney
    4421 Woodward Ave., Detroit, Detroit; 313-832-5700; thewhitney.com
    Fancy dinner? Check. Historic home? Check. Ghosts? Check, please! Lumber baron David Whitney and his wife, Sarah, died in this house, and rumors that it's haunted have persisted. For nearly three decades, folks have reported seeing apparitions, hearing clanging dishes when no one is around, and having their place settings mysteriously rearranged. While beautiful and well-maintained, the mansion is spooky AF: maybe it's all those giant paintings of young hooded girls with eyes that burrow into the soul. Stop by for a drink in the Whitney's aptly named Ghost Bar to see for yourself.
