Molly's Picks

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


The Huron Room /// The newest effort from Green Dot Stables’ founders Jacques and Christine Driscoll and chef Les Molnar brings a fresh fish menu to Mexicantown, with room for just 77 under the mural of the Huron Lightship that inspired the name. The menu stars a list of six Great Lakes fish, served as fish and chips, in sandwiches, or in tacos, expertly prepared with a light batter made with local beer. There are other choices, too, starting with a list of bite-sized appetizers including chicken wings, quail eggs, and frog legs. They also feature Michigan-made/owned liquor, beer, and wine. 2547 Bagley Ave., Detroit; 313-265-3325. L & D daily. $14 H


Stache International /// The funky sandwich spot around the corner from Gratiot Central Market in Eastern Market serves hefty sandwiches made with house-smoked meats including turkey, pork, sausage, and bacon. It offers a friendly haven for shoppers at picnic tables under exposed ductwork and open filament light bulbs. Place settings, paper napkins, and condiments come to the tables in Faygo six-pack cartons and the local soft drinks are the only beverage choices, emphasizing the local approach of proprietors/musicians Ray Moses and Steve Kay. 1416 E. Fisher Fwy., Detroit, 313-974-6895. L Tue.-Sat. $10 H
