Detroit Restaurant Week Preview #5: Michael Symon’s Roast

It should not be surprising that a featured dish at a Michael Symon restaurant is a platter of cured pork.  This Selection of Charcuterie (by TheHungryDudes) is a must have every time you visit Roast, not just during Restaurant Week.

Chef Dan Campbell is meticulous in his plating and flavor combinations.

San Francisco Cioppino (byTheHungryDudes) is a seafood stew, classically prepared.  Clams, shrimp, mussels, and more sitting in a piquant, peppery tomato broth.

Detroit Restaurant Week Spring Edition 2011 Preview #3 – 24 Grille

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?

Detroit Restaurant Week Spring Edition 2011 Preview #2 – Wolfgang Puck Grille

Sure, it is named after an ultra mega huge celebrity chef, but Wolfgang Puck Grille doesn’t rest on the name alone.  Chef Marc Djozlija leads a very talented kitchen that kicks out consistently impressive dishes.

Angel Hair Pasta (by TheHungryDudes)  is served with wild field mushrooms and white truffle oil.  A savory, meaty, (this a vegetarian option, however) and wholly satisfying dish.  Luxurious and utterly decadent.
