Since moving to the Broderick I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing many great things about living in downtown Detroit. And I have to say one of the best things is the proximity to a variety of great local restaurants and bars, which I plan to highlight in Foodie Feature posts dedicated to this very topic.
Grabbing good food and growler of great beer is easy when the Detroit Beer Company is just a few steps outside your door. If you can make it there for lunch or dinner, I would definitely recommend the cheesy buttery goodness that is the Brewer’s Bread to start things off, and the brick oven pizzas go along nicely with a pint of Michigan-made beer. And you get a free entree on your sixth check-in here on Foursquare.
Looking for more comfort food options? The Rub BBQ Pub is another place to check out. While I’m a huge fan of Slows, this place can hold its own when it comes to barbeque. The brisket was tender, the burgers were big and as a self-proclaimed mac and cheese connoisseur I definitely approve of theirs. Not to mention I love that many menu items have Detroit-inspired names such as the Kaline, the Slim Shady and the Kid Rock.
Looking for something to do after dinner on a Friday night? My boyfriend and I had a blast listening to the sounds of Ernie Krivda & the Detroit Connection at Cliff Bell’s, just a few blocks away from Broderick. Awesome live jazz music and great drink specials? We’ll definitely be back.
Have you recently visited Detroit Beer Company, the Rub BBQ or Cliff Bell’s? What tips do you have to share? Any favorite menu items/drinks?
