King’s Bakery
    	
    It's hard to imagine making improvements to the classic shawarma, but King's did just that by adding a layer of cheese and wrapping it up in manoush, a Lebanaese flatbread. In short, King's makes delicious cheesy shawarma in better bread.

Duly’s Place
    
    5458 Vernor Hwy, Detroit
    
    313-554-3076
    
    Duly’s Place is the definition of a hole-in-the-wall joint. They serve up coney dogs, cheese fries, hamburgers, and anything else that is basic and delicious behind a tiny counter. This place is no-fuss and we love it.

 Motorburger  
     474 Peterboro, Detroit  
    
    Another Windsor eatery set to join the cafeteria-style Detroit Shipping Co, Motorburger is a high-end burger restaurant and microbrewery that describes itself as a "present day rendition of a vintage burger joint with a modern twist on design." Don’t forget the poutine! We're hoping they bring their most popular sammy, the Deux Chevaux (grilled beef, sharp dijon mustard, gruyere cheese, baby spinach, and smoked bacon balsamic caramelized onions), to this location.

Townhouse
    500 Woodward Ave.; 313-723-1000
    It's hard to miss this hip new spot located in the middle of downtown Detroit — mostly due to that enormous sign bearing the restaurant's name. Of course, there's also that beautiful glass-encased dining room that gives patrons that chance to dine outdoors in all sorts of weather. You'll find elevated American cuisine here made with top-notch ingredients by experience chefs.

The Boombap at Ima: The dish is Chef Mike Ransom's take on the Korean bi bim bap. I added ginger beef for an extra $3, then tasted each element separately first, arrayed in their pretty bowl, before swirling them into the mix. Each was flawless on its own — musky shiitakes, fluffy rice, a medium chili sauce — and even better with its friends. Pickle slices were ultra-thin, made in-house by quickly processing cucumber in rice vinegar and mirin in a vacuum seal machine. A crisp-edged fried egg helped them all to play nicely together. — Jane Slaughter
