The 10 best new Detroit restaurants to open so far in 2019


April showers may bring May flowers, but spring in metro Detroit means a lush list of new restaurant offerings. We might be just four months into 2019, but these 10 restaurants boast some stiff competition. Already, Metro Times has reviewed three Japanese gastropubs, whimsical upscale fare, and something called a "Shower Burger" — all of which add serious color and flavor to metro Detroit's dining scene. While we await others to open their doors (and indulge in some return visits to those that are already open), include these spots in your next "where do you want to eat" date-night debate or solo-tasting adventure.
