Detroit Restaurant Week Preview: Desserts!

Today through Friday, we will feature a few of the desserts being offered during Detroit Restaurant Week, which starts this Friday April 1.  

Our first sweet stop is Wolfgang Puck Grille for their decadent 12-layer Dobos Torte (by TheHungryDudes).  Satisfyingly sweet yet not at all cloying, this is a balanced, lovely piece of cake.

Our second stop takes us to the other Book Cadillac restaurant, 24 Grill.  Kurobuta Pork Belly (by TheHungryDudes) is both sweet and salty.  When combined with the citrusy mango and brazil nuts on the plate, the caramelized belly shines.

Throughout the day today, we will preview some of the restaurant week starting courses.    

First up – Crispy Veal Sweetbreads (by TheHungryDudes) from Roast.  Sweetbreads are a calf’s thymus glands.  Served with apple, celery, bacon, and mustard jus, these are luscious nuggets of mellow beefy goodness.

Don’t be afraid of offal, it is delicious.

Located in the historic Book-Cadillac Hotel, 24 Grille is on the cutting edge of Detroit restaurants.  Chef Christian Borden is not afraid to focus on flavors and textures that might seem experimental or out of the ordinary.  Dishes are bold with impeccable composition.

24 Grille also boasts the most elaborate and choice filled Restaurant Week menu with nearly 20 choices.  Maybe a reason to go twice?
