I agree with this. Although it's more like 10 min away if you live in the city.

While Detroit metro has many good points, food is not one of them.
But I'll agree to disagree on this. With the exception of New Orleans, Atlanta, Chicago, Miami and LA. Everywhere else I've been is not quite on par (although I admit I never visited the east coast... yet ).

Most of the time we eat out we are venturing form Lyon Township, or from Westland. Northville has a coule of great places, Birmingham has a few as does Rochester, Detroit has some, even lansing has one, which is exactly the point There is good and execellent food here, but it is far less common than ohter big metros

It seems there is a difficulty getting the point across there is a difference between saying there are no good resturuants and the are few. I am not sure how I can better explain this distinction

BTW there is even some execellent dining downriver. Some of us do nto even eat muskrat every night. We have electricity and indoor plumbing
now too.
I'm actually disagreeing with what you said. Great food isn't all that hard to find in the western suburbs. I can speak to the lack of great food downriver because I lived there for 10 years until we moved last year. When Mexican Village and Hungarian Rhapsody are considered two of the best restaurants downriver, it's no wonder why you're having a hard time finding good options within minutes. Mexican Village is average at best and Hungarian Rhapsody is just, yuk. If you drive 30 minutes west, excellent food is not hard to find. Finding organic food downriver is like finding a unicorn. It doesn't exist. It's plentiful in Northville, Novi, and even Livonia. Shopping at a Kroger downriver is a very different experience than shopping at a Kroger in Northville. It's all about demographics and what people demand.
