There is nothing more exciting than an event in this city that I love so much. Fall will soon to show her beautiful face and what better way to celebrate the first week than at the Fall addition of Detroit Restaurant Week starting September 19-September 28th. Ten days, 21 outstanding venues, and wonderfully crafted meals for only $30.00 per person. How could we not participate with a DateNight that was already set up for perfection?
For ten days you get to choose a DateNight or if you’re bossy pick more than one to tantalize your taste buds. Make your reservations and enjoy a more than delicious night with your honey. DRW only serves dinner which includes a three course meal for $30 per person, you get to choose an appetizer, entree and a dessert. Ummm Hmm. From some of Detroit’s finest establishments.

I know, I know take your time to look over the menu’s before you make your choice. Kris and I went back and forth for an hour picking our poison. We decided on The Rattlesnake Club, located in the Rivertown area with a magnificent view of the Detroit River. One of Detroit’s most exquisite restaurants with a very creative menu. The view became a scenery to a romantic movie not yet finished. With thunder and lightning, there is not a better night on the town lovers. In front of us a short menu to celebrate the event, with an extensive wine and beer list. Make sure you make the most out of your choices and select something that is foreign to the palate, it will make your moment more enjoyable. The experience is about stepping out of the norm and into exquisite dining.
My starter was the Arugula and Goat Cheese salad, the Faygo Root Beer Braised Short Ribs and Michigan Peach Crisp.
My darling Kristopher had the Main Lobster Bisque, the short ribs as well and the Pumpkin Creme Brûlée.
I am a very picky eater but was able to enjoy each and every dish and I have a newfound love for goat cheese. Overall, we enjoyed our time together as well as the second night of Detroit Restaurant Week and I hope you do the same. Remember you’re not just dating, but you’re dating with a purpose.
