On the Road Eats: Detroit Suburbs

Hotel:  Fairfield Inn & Suites Detroit Troy
Would I stay again?  Maybe.  I normally stay in Southfield but based on my client’s office location, I decided to stay in this area.  The hotel was a standard Fairfield.


Lunch: Ima
Would I dine again?
Yes.  Read Eater and saw that Ima had opened close to my hotel so a quick ride from the airport and I had a good, casual lunch while I prepped for my meeting.

Dinner: Mabel Gray
Would I dine again?
Yes.  Yes again.  They offer a tasting menu for $65 and as a solo diner, it is the best experience to sit at the bar and try numerous items.  I ate, I read a book and I had a couple short conversations.  I would return often if I lived here.  If you visit, they are closed on Mondays so plan accordingly.

Lunch: Cantoro Italian Market & Trattoria
Would I dine again?
No.  Not as a solo diner.  The food was good but lunch was super quiet, the restaurant was not busy and it would probably be better for a dinner with the family if I lived there.
