|Soufflé with Grand Marnier Sauce|
I had checked out the website detroit.eater.com for dining options. It's a great idea with 38 restaurants that are briefly reviewed and updated quarterly. Our stop for lunch was Rose's Fine Foods, a small diner committed to totally local food that even these foodies found amazing. A short drive
down Jefferson Avenue was Pewabic Pottery known locally and beyond. We found it akin to Rookwood. The quaint tudor
cottage looked out of place in the neighborhood, but contained some pieces that we just couldn't resist for ourselves and as gifts.

|Dinner at Polish VIllage Cafe in Hamtramck|
From our trusty dining guide, we found the Polish area of the city—Hamtramck. Virtually a city within a city, it was a working class area with a vibe. Following the crowd to the downstairs Polish Village Cafe, we joined the line forming for a table. The wait was much longer than indicated, but the experience was purely cultural with locals speaking Polish and Hungarian. We were definitely not in a tourist spot.
