Not a lot has changed with the top three restaurants in the May 2016 Detroit Top 25, as revealed by the social consumer data by Foodable Labs. The tops are still the same, but have switched positions (Roast moves from first to second; Wright & Co. moves from second to third; and Selden Standard moves from third to first).
In addition to the weekend tasting and brunch menus, Antietam’s dinner menu features such favorites as parsnip apple bisque, oxtail terrine, veal osso bucco, and rack of lamb.
Parks & Rec Diner, on the other hand, presents a more laid back dining experience in a cozy, sit-down diner, which features new twists on standard breakfast favorites. They keep it local with food from suppliers like Keep Growing Detroit, Recovery Park Farms, LaBrosse Farms, Grown in Detroit, Zingermans Bakery, and Rhulig Farm.
Rock City Eatery, touting “food, booze, pie,” prides itself on an ever-changing and locally sourced menu. On it, you might find everything from spicy Brussels sprouts and poutine to Korean bowls and Spanish octopus to lamb cheeseburgers.
At the other end of the spectrum, Café D’Mongo is described as an “eclectic hipster watering hole with quirky decor featuring classic drinks and live music.” The establishment’s Facebook page warns: “We're a cast of characters you won't want to miss!” Besides the cocktails and atmosphere, the food is an array of unique choices like the chickpea fritter, soy BLT, egg and eggplant plate, and barbecue seitan.
