WOLFGANG PUCK STEAK:

Decorated with tasteful photographs of downtown buildings emphasizing its Detroit location, Puck’s dining room offers a number of different seating arrangements — from the bar at the entrance to the more secluded dining room. The menu, of course, features red meat — notably two impressive American Kobe steaks from Idaho’s Snake River Farms — but also includes stuffed shrimp and whole Maine lobster, as well as specials du jour, such as chicken pot pie and fish & chips. Although there are lesser steaks, including a dry-aged New York sirloin in 10- and 14-ounce portions, the two Kobes are kings of the hill.

RODIN:

Located next to the DIA inside the Park Shelton, this charmingly quirky new bar and restaurant from Good Girls Go to Paris proprietor Torya Blanchard offers a romantic urban setting for its menu of French-inspired small plates, each one a distinctive creation from the kitchen of executive chef Kate Williams. Rodin features such dishes as fried ravioli in cream sauce, lamb with fennel and pickled carrots, and warm cauliflower salad.
