Beau's Grillery /// The spacious dining room with its uncovered windows and dramatic lighting from open filament bulbs is backed by a highly professional staff headed by chef/proprietor Zack Sklar and executive chef Dan Campbell. The activity in the big kitchen is visible behind a big glass wall. Standout dishes on the solidly American menu include dry-rubbed ribs, prime New York strip, and oysters from the wood-fired grill. It’s a very successful redo of the former Beau Jack’s — and the house chili is still being served. 4108 W. Maple Rd., Bloomfield Hills; 248-626-2630. L & D Mon.-Sat., D Sun., Br. Sat.-Sun. $22 H

 

Dime Store: Sweet Poached Pear — -spinach, charred fennel, spicy roasted pepitas, goat cheese, cornbread croutons, and bacon vinaigrette.

Dime Store /// Just what the downtown restaurant scene needed: a cool breakfast/lunch spot that also serves snacks and cocktails in the evening in a stylish setting in the Chrysler House. The catchy name is derived from the building’s former identity as the Dime Building, and it adds just the right retro touch to a sprightly contemporary American menu, typified by omelets and benedicts early in the day and creative sandwiches such as the duck Reuben later. Drinks, till 9 p.m., are accompanied by an array of bar bites including spicy fries, pork sliders, and mac and cheese of the day. 719 Griswold St., Detroit; 313-962-9106. B & L & cocktails Mon.-Sat. Closed Sun. $15 H

 

Symbol H: handicap accessible
Note: Dollar amount is the average entree price
