Detroit Dining

Explore Detroit's Greektown, with its Greek restaurants and shops surrounding the Greektown Casinos. Detroit is home to many American classics including the Coney Island Hotdog, Saunders Bumpy Cakes, Dominos Pizza, Little Caesars Pizza, Better Made Potatoe Chips, and Vernor's Ginger Ale.

Some of the best food experiences are to be found in one of the following places:

Pegasus Taverna
558 Monroe St, Detroit, MI 48226
+1 313 964 6800
The newest, trendiest and most expensive of the Greek restaurants on Monroe Street, Pegasus is also the most adventurous. Besides the Greektown staples like eggplant, spinach pies and flaming cheeses, Pegasus has some American items and some offbeat Greek dishes, including squid, red caviar and tyropitaki (feta cheese wrapped in filo bread).

New Hellas Cafe
583 Monroe St, Detroit, MI 48226
+1 303 377 4244
When long lines start forming outside Greektown restaurants, it's the one outside New Hellas that forms first and lasts the longest. On the corner at the end of the famous block, New Hellas is comfortable, informal and dependable.

Fishbone's Rhythm Kitchen Cafe
400 Monroe St, Detroit, MI 48226
+1 313 965 4600
Greektown's revival was symbolized by the opening of this lively Cajun food-and-jazz emporium. On the same premises as the Atheneum Suites Hotel, Fishbone's is wildly popular, and celebrities such as Aretha Franklin often drop by.

Roma Cafe
3401 Riopelle St, Detroit, MI 48207
+1 303 480 1877
Detroit's oldest restaurant, located in what used to be known as Little Italy, a neighborhood near the Eastern Market, has survived several cycles of neighborhood blight and revival. Its tuxedo-clad wait staff and fancy traditional Italian food have remained in place as the family business has passed down through generations.

New Parthenon
547 Monroe St, Detroit, MI 48226
+1 303 777 0826
You can eat octopus at New Parthenon for lunch, dinner or a midnight snack. This popular spot is usually open until 3am, and it's a favorite with the late-night bar crowd. Surrounded by huge Greek statues and garish Art Deco murals, diners can also sample the Parthenon special trio of baked eggplant, pastitso baked macaroni and spinach pie.
