Noodle House

“Amazing ramen noodle spot. You'd never think ramen could be so fancy. Cool atmosphere and great service overall. Right under the ambassador bridge kinda out of the way, so a good spot if you wanna be near the action of Corktown but dont wanna wait too long for a table.”

Jazz Club
$$
“Very fun, loud, and exciting. A divey throwback place that claims to be the oldest. Catch the gorilla funk mob if you can! I wasn't impressed with the mac n' cheese, but maybe I just got the wrong thing. There is usually a cover”

Deli / Bodega
$$
“Mudgie’s is a restaurant in Detroit’s historic Corktown neighborhood, serving only the highest-quality food, fine cocktails and spirits, 100+ beers, and boutique wines. They use local products anytime they can and roast their meats in house. If you're in town the 3rd week of July, go down for Lobster Roll week!”
