Finally a chance for Detroit chefs and restaurants to shine. For the first time, from September 18- 27, 2009 the Motor City will participate in a 10 day showcase of downtown Detroit’s most outstanding chefs and cuisine. The city’s top dining establishments will offer a minimum three-course dinner for a fixed price ($27) not including beverages, tax, gratuity, and many restaurants are also offering specially-priced wine and beverage pairings to accompany the meal. The list of participating restaurants are a powerhouse of culinary expertise.
According to Sylvia Rector, Free Press Restaurant Critic, organizers are set to announce details of the event today, targeting only top-tier venues to launch what will be an annual event. In addition, Detroit’s Eastern Market will offer special Detroit Restaurant Week culinary demonstrations each Saturday morning from now through September 26.
