Restaurants in Downtown

The breakfast and lunch choice of CEO’s, judges, government officials, and other power people is designed to resemble a contemporary yet cozy living room. Bright pastels and plasma TV’s adorn the walls, and there’s even a fireplace in the foyer.

Vicentes feels a bit like an old-fashioned supper club, with blond wood chairs, tables covered in a striking shade of burgundy, and a dance floor that comes alive with salsa music after 10 p.m. on weekends.

Despite being owned by Jimmy Schmidt, Detroit’s best known chef, Rattlesnake Club is somewhat of a foodies’ secret, tucked away on a side street just east of downtown.

Crowded with Formica tables that have seen better days, Lafayette Coney is a beloved institution that seems to have been in Detroit as long as its eponymous river.
