What are Detroit’s best overall restaurants?

Answers from Our Experts (1)

When you’re not munching on Greek food in the must-visit Greektown, head over Iridescence Restaurant or Jimmy Schmidt’s Rattlesnake Club. All rival the Windy City’s famous foodie sophistication.

With huge windows that frame a view of the twinkling city lights, you don’t have to guess how Iridescence Restaurant, located atop the MotorCity Casino, got its name. Everything from the interior design — including hanging light bulb globes — to the cutting-edge table settings defines urban sophistication. The artfully plated, creative cuisine (much of it organic and seasonal) perfectly complements the swanky atmosphere. Be sure to save room for one of the sugary works of art created by award-winning pastry chef Patricia Nash. Jimmy Schmidt’s Rattlesnake Club is where well-known James Beard Award-winning chef Jimmy Schmidt offers seasonal, worldly American cuisine. There’s also a dining room (overlooking the river) with an extensive and well-priced wine list. The menu focuses on sustainably harvested and seasonal ingredients, such as Wild Alaskan king salmon or tea-cured free-range duck breast.
