24grille and Grilled Cheese & Tomato Soup

Restaurant veteran Molly Abraham noshes around town, tracking down some top spots


24grille: It shares the ground floor of the new Westin Book Cadillac with Michael Symon’s high-powered Roast, offering a casual but still-dramatic setting that combines a hint of the building’s vintage in the black-painted, structural-steel columns and exposed ceiling, which contrast nicely with contemporary furnishings. The up-to-date menu reflects old and new with such dishes as braised short ribs updated with horseradish/hollandaise sauce; wild-mushroom crêpes; and diver scallops with pasta. Almost everything, including the ice cream, is housemade. 204 Michigan Ave., Detroit; 877-442-1924. L Mon.-Fri., D nightly.  $24 H Non-Smoking

Grilled Cheese & Tomato Soup: As the name suggests, the accent is on comfort food. Proprietor Jeff McArthur may have studied at Schoolcraft’s renowned culinary school, but he uses family recipes for such homey dishes as beef stew, meatloaf, and pot roast, as well as sandwiches, and serves them in a completely informal setting. 32407 Northwestern Hwy., Farmington Hills; 248-626-6767. L & D daily. $9 H Non-Smoking
