Beautiful alpine atmosphere, casual to classy. Family dining. Closed Monday.
Jacoby's has been a favorite downtown Detroit eatery and hangout since 1904. The main floor dining area retains that classic appeal, but many don't realize that Jacoby’s hosts live music from lots of local bands in its upstairs lounge. Call for scheduled acts.
Richter’s Chalet is a throwback to those days before the Food Network, celebrity chefs, Neiman Ranch and Maytag blue cheese allegedly transformed American gourmands into gourmets. And its price structure also recalls another era when two people could enjoy dinner and drinks for $40. German-born Roland Richter Sr. founded his half-timbered restaurant a generation ago, the chalet seats 150 and serves a dozen German dinners, supplemented by several daily specials, both of which include soup or salad, averaging around $12. The desserts, none of which cost more than $3, are another one of Richter’s strengths. Chocolate cheesecake, hazelnut raspberry torte, and the classic schwarzwaelder kirsch torte (Black Forest cherry) are executed well.
The Front is a mainstay in downtown Berkley, doubling as an American biergarten as well as a martini lounge. Patrons can choose to enjoy the Old World charm and laid-back style of the downstairs or to chill out in the '50s-style lounge upstairs, where live music plays every weekend.
"The Dakota Inn Rathskeller is the only remaining true ethnic German restaurant in Detroit. It is the type of classic German Rathskeller or Biergarten that was a mainstay of German immigrant community, and still has the very best German cooking in the city."
Since 1933, Detroiters have gotten their fill of bratwurst at The Dakota Inn, which offers a Bavarian style menu in an old Heidelberg atmosphere. Serves up three different types of schnitzel. Gift certificates are available. Reservations are recommended for Friday and Saturday.

Have you ever wanted to be able to roll sushi like the masters at your favorite Japanese restaurant? Well now you can! Wyandotte’s aptly named Sushi Bar is holding a sushi-making and sake-tasting class this Tuesday. You will learn how to make several different types of sushi, how to make rice the right way and other tricks of the trade all while sipping on a sake, wine or beer pairing for each roll. Reservations are required.
Attention! Calling all black sheep, bad seeds, outcasts and rejects! Next Tuesday, Nick Cave and his Bad Seeds will be rockin’ the grand interior of the Masonic Temple. No strangers to the constant ebb and flow of life, this alternative group has seen a multitude of members come and go and has experimented with every form of rock imaginable: punk, grunge, garage, gothic, no wave. You name it; chances are they’ve played it. We love Cave’s slow, haunting drawl in “Wide Lovely Eyes” and his metric story telling in “Red Right Hand”. Each song showcases different styles, sounds and instrumentals, leaving the listener constantly guessing what’s to come. Forest Gump could have alluded to Cave and the Bad Seeds because, like a box of chocolates, with this band, you never know what you’re gonna get.
It has been 50 years since San Francisco ad man Louis Honig bought his 68-acre ranch in California’s Napa Valley, planting it with grapes to sell to neighboring wineries. It has been 30 years since his grandson Michael Honig took over the vineyard and winery. And 25 years ago, the family began producing small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon. Today, the sustainable, successful family winery now produces wines that appear on lists throughout the country. Those bottles will shine when paired with a menu from chef Alex Wannemacher’s 5-course dinner at Ann Arbor’s Chop House. Expect such choices as fennel-scented diver sea scallops, cardamom-crusted rack of lamb, porcini-dusted prime New York strip and more. It’s pricey, yeah, but what do you expect for a five-course meal with wines from a vineyard whose owner is right there with you?
