Detroit, MI for Farm-to-Fork Eats at Republic Tavern

Minnesota, United States
Seattle native. Bucket list contains: everything.

I make it a point to sniff out really good eateries when I’m traveling. On a recent trip to Detroit, I very literally did just that. While on a walk, I passed Republic and the smells from inside pulled me in like little ghostly fingers. It was Friday night, and the crowd inside alerted me that this was a good decision.

I called a friend of mine in the area and she met me for dinner. We were seated in twenty minutes or so and immediately started drooling at the sight of the menu. We ordered their house made bread and butter to start, along with two cocktails that our waiter suggested. Both were completely flawless. My friend and I were both thrilled by the number of vegetarian options, and ordered three dishes to split. The portions are great, so we even had some leftovers.

What’s great about this place – which you’ll read if you Google it – is that the chef has a really unique background and is uber passionate about using local, seasonal ingredients. Her menus sort of become a culinary showcase of the city. I’ll definitely be going back.

Insider Tip

Because of the chef’s approach to cooking, the menu is constantly rotating to keep the freshest and most in-season ingredients on display. Not the place for creatures of habit. : )
