Upscale, eclectic dining indoors and on the patio. Handcrafted signature beers complement the distinctive American fare. Cigar and Martini bar located on 2nd floor. Unique and elegant private dining available.
Steak dominates the fare and there’s nothing on the menu that would make a meat-and-potatoes lover squirm. Six dishes under the heading “VIP” are flambéed at two stations in the dining room. All of the entrées we tried were very good: seafood strudel ($16.95), fettuccine carbonara (prepared with chicken), veal Marsala, seafood marinara ($17.95). Sides are predictable, such as green beans. Soup or salad comes with entrees; the clam chowder, which we had in both the New England and Manhattan variations, is terrific. Service is a serious issue that needs attention from management.
"Michael Mina brings his steakhouse concept to Detroit with Bourbon Steak. Through his modern twist on a classic menu, lively, inviting bar and sophisticated, contemporary atmosphere, Bourbon Steak plays host to guests looking for the perfect fillet in a modern steakhouse setting."
Brick Oven serves Italian dishes tailored to American sensibilities, meaning lots o’ cheese, mammoth portions and thick salad dressings, alongside a number of quintessentially American items (burgers, mashed potatoes). Their wood-burning oven gets hot enough to cook their thin-crust pizzas in minutes, and they serve a tender, succulent New York strip covered in heavenly mushrooms. Brick Oven is attracting a following despite its less than prime location, in a strip mall off the usual Dearborn tracks. It’s open seven days.

"An upscale, rustic setting in a magnificent turn-of-the-century hunting lodge a lá Ralph Lauren. Two custom-made pool tables made of tree trunks, and two huge fireplaces provide a comfortable atmosphere. Huge portions of wild game, fresh fish, steaks, salads, sandwiches, and home-baked desserts. Burgers are an event — buffalo, ostrich or beef. The appetizer list is a great read."

Since 1920, this has been the place to bring that first date, get engaged, or just catch up with the folks. Gift certificates are available.
