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.

MGM Grand Detroit,1777 Third, Detroit; 313-465-1644. D nightly $50

 

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.

15 E. Kirby, Detroit; 313-285-9218; D Tue.-Sat. $15
