Steak Tartar [DTW]

I have been craving steak tartar---any recommendations in the metro Detroit area? My favorite around here has been at Roast....

I really appreciate all of the feedback. We are really looking forward to our trip!

Anyone have anything specific about the food at Avenues? It looks like a lot of vegetarian choices (neither of us are vegetarian). Is this their specialty?

I also made reservations at Terzo Piano in the Art Museum for lunch on Saturday as we're planning to spend a good deal of time at the museum that day. Any feedback about his choice?

Thanks so much for the suggestions! We will be there over the weekend, Friday and Saturday (coming in from Detroit).

I also will almost always pick food over view.

We ate at Everest once and didn't have a good experience. I realize that was most likely an anomaly, but those things tend to stick with you when you spend $400 on dinner.

We love Chicago and can't wait to spend a few days in your beautiful city!

advice for celebrating in Chicago

My husband and I will be celebrating 20 years of marriage over Memorial Day in Chicago. We currently have reservations at MK (one of my favorites) and at Tru (we've never been).

Would like the 2nd dinner to be Tru the right spot?? Now I'm wondering if Spiaggia would be a better choice.

Please help, and remember, it needs to be a place I can get a reservation now for Memorial Day.
