Detroit in November

The Majestic Cafe hosts a Thanksgiving Breakfast Buffet from 7 AM to Noon so that you have a nice, warm place to watch the parade. The menu items are typically breakfast and the price is $20 an adult/$15 a child.

Detroit -- The Whitney is hosting both a Thanksgiving Brunch with VIP Parade Seating at 7:30 AM on Thanksgiving Day ($59 an adult/$39 a child) and Thanksgiving Dinner from Noon to 6 PM ($49 an adult/$29 a child).

Downtown Detroit is happening all day with the Parade n Detroit Lions football with many great things to do and places to eat at. The parade is a must view as one of the oldest n largest nation wide. My choice for downtown is Sweet Water Tavern named the Best Wings in the state along with super ribs, craft beers and the game will be on tv,,,yes open all day Thanksgiving

Vince's Ristorante Italiano since 1960 Hand Crafted Pasta n Pizza Detroit Mi

http://www.vincesdetroit.com/
Italian food as close to homemade as you can get when dining out in Detroit
Paintings of Rome and Venice, and the owner's hometown of Frosinone, brighten the cheery dining room. With a menu of oh-so-familiar pastas, veal, and chicken dishes from the Italian-American repertoire,The food is unrivaled outside of Italy! The Chicken Marsala is to die for! The pasta is fresh and perfect every time, as is the pizza. Family friendly and warm, friendly, genuine people!

Since a small child my whole family has only eaten Vince's pizza along with many pasta items, along with a thing called pizza bread beef burger the best sandwich I've ever eaten.My favorite Italian restaurant of all time. What is Italian cooking, I say meals prepared with a whole lot of love, where can you get a mother and daughter team creating the most perfect dishes with homemade pastas and sauces. I say bring any in our nations Italian chefs who only supervise a kitchen and the try the magnificent foods at Vince's. They started in there house just behind the current building and expanded in the 50 years of this true homemade foods place. I'd like to get chef Aldo from that chain to throw-down with Maria on who makes the best pasta and sauces,, she's hands on everyday. Forget about any negative reviews these people haven't eaten there for 40 years like me. This family continues to commit to the freshest homemade foods by a mother and daughter team that can not be found in this world today for 50 years, so spend a couple hours and meet them, they don't hide in the kitchen. They welcome you to be apart of there family and yes it takes a little time to prepared the homemade food when not a chain restaurant.

No wonder Mohammed Ali, Sinatra and Donald Sutherland sought it out! It's one of Detroit's FINEST "semi-secrets"...for over 50 years with the same family!Maria, Lydia, Frank and the staff provide excellent food and service with a smile. treasured memories over many years. The food hails from Sicily (Spicy and robust) and is the best money can by locally. Well worth the visit with safe and secure parking around back. We have never been disappointed. Reservations recommended on the weekends at night.

Super choice for breakfast the Ham Shop Cafe a decades old Detroit favorite, Just when you think you've seen it all The Ham Shoppe which has been plating up great jumbo ham breakfast and sandwich's has now added great Soul foods. I had the Chicken and Waffles along with the Catfish and Eggs with Grits and let me say it was super good and I'll be back for more really soon. Not just a Ham Spot in Greek Town plating up really good Soul Foods. This place is must try.

Addictive Eclectic Ribeye with Poblano Pepper La Crema Sauce, MONEY [El Asador Steakhouse, Detroit]

As a major Foodie being raised in SW Detroit and a regular visitor to my old stomping grounds to support the hard working family owned eateries, I have to say this has to be the Very Best New eating spot for decades in all of Mexican Town. Little known the area is kinda split between the Clark Park area and Springwells Village section which is just a couple exits away at Springwells off I-75 only 10 minutes from the heart of downtown Detroit. The area most missed by the suburbanite's which think Mexican Town is only on Bagley have been missing dozens of unique non tourist trap real deal Mexican eating spots,,,that guess what the Mexican's in the Barrio eat at. Ah Ha so now you know the real deal.

In reality many of the long time decades old Mexican Town eateries are only plating up Gringo style meals that why you only see the folks from the suburbs visiting thinking this is the finest offered,,,NOT you must venture out folks to explore all of what Southwest Detroit has to offer. Please continue reading for a interesting Foodie venture you must try soon.

A executive Chef Luis Garza who spent years working for Andiamo's now brings gourmet Steaks along with unique Mexican crafted meals to the area. For now we'll call it a hidden gem that you must try for those looking for a fine dining experience not found in other parts of SW Detroit.
We had the most amazing meal and service Thanks Ana our waitress and the table side made Guacamole in the Stone ground dish. After reading the reviews just had to try the Rib eye smothered with Poblano Pepper La Crema Sauce,,, believe me a Steak like no other that warmed our belly also the Mole Gallina which I know as Chicken Mole where the sauce is the boss and Yes the very best I've had around town as most use it from a jar,,,this is house made with that special Chocolate only found in Mexico.

A large selection of Steaks,Seafood and Mexican specialties can be found on the menu that are many of the elaborate dishes we'll be trying soon,,next will be the Aged Sirloin with Guajillo,Ancho and Chipotle Butter Cream Sauce along with the traditional Stuffed Poblano Peppers I'm so enlightened by.
Also we tried a couple old school Tacos,,,Chorizo and Asada both off the chart great, I notice a few different Fish Taco's I'll try next time for a super treat I'm sure. A very nice pleasant clean eating area with get this white table cloths,,yep I made one hell of a mess Ha Ha. This place is # 2 on Urbanspoon for the most talked about eating spots out of 1100 restaurants,,,so now what does that tell you. Stop by say Hello to Chef Luis,,brother Hemero and MaMa Maria for a most delightful dining experience. Oh Yea please LIKE them on Facebook too. ENJOY

Urbanspoon erasing thousands of Photo's from long time Prime user's ???

I posted here because many users are also Urbanspoon members as I've also been a long time member of this group,, the parent company will not respond so I'm taking this to the web on many sites. Why waste your time reviewing and placing photo's on a site when they;ll be removed. This is a head's up so no one will waste there time.

Why Yelp Sucks!

I did the Yelp thing for a few years and been with Urbanspoon 4 plus years and now this happens,,,,, Urbanspoon Forked UP
July 14
A email sent to IAC parent company,,,, ENJOY

The new team at Urbanspoon has lead to the departure of many and the removal of thousands of Photo's and many will soon removing thousands of there reviews from the last 4-5 years. The seems to be a witch hunt placed on the heads of the long time Prime members by BEN at Urbanspoon and his boss Keela. The have removed 1700 plus of my photo's and those of select primes. Many have stopped posting reviews and photo's because of this over the last month.

I assure you will see a major reduction in you page hits which means ad dollars under this new take control and knowing how to piss folks off. Many of us are older folk that spend thousands of dollars helping your site by eating, reviewing and posting photo's. Ben had pulled all my ranking a few weeks ago as the number one in Detroit and then this past weekend had his team remove half my photo's. This info needs to get into the hands of those concerned and DOUG LEEDS CEO of Ask.com who heads up Urbanspoon. I really need someone to contact me on this issue prior to removing everything I've contributed over the years and then recommend hundreds of other users do the same
