DETROIT — More than 15 restaurants and bars are coming together for the second annual Dine Drink Detroit, presented by Brooklyn Outdoor, a 10-day culinary event showcasing one of the country’s fasting growing food cultures, with participating restaurants featuring signature food & drink combinations, all for just $15. The event will run from Oct. 2-11 and reservations are not required.
This year’s participating establishments include: Green Dot Stables, Johnny Noodle King, Craftwork, La Feria, Detroit City Distillery, Great Lakes Coffee, Ottava Via, Mercury Burger Bar, St. Cece’s, Two James/Katoi , Traffic Jam & Snug, Mudgies Deli, Motor City Wine, and Grand Trunk Pub, with restaurants adding up through Oct. 2.
“The food scene in Detroit is tenacious, yet still kind-hearted and collaborative on many levels,” says Kate Williams, event co-founder and chef/owner of Republic and Parks & Rec., both opening this fall in the GAR building in downtown Detroit. “This fresh passion for all things culinary is inspiring and we feel fortunate to be a part of this movement.”
Proceeds from this year’s Dine Drink Detroit will be donated to the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy, an organization that provides improved access to the riverfront, spearheads economic development, and provides valuable green space to residents and visitors.
“Beyond food and drink, we also wanted give back to one of the city’s true gems,” says Scott Rutterbush, event co-founder. “The riverfront, with its mission to be “an accessible, world-class gathering place for all” is just the sort of thing this city needs and we want to do our part in furthering that initiative.”
Dine Drink Detroit will kick off with a launch party at the newly renovated Outdoor Recreation Center located at 1801 Atwater Street on Sept. 29. Tickets are available for $15 and include four drinks provided by participating restaurants, food provided by the highly anticipated Parks & Rec, Gold Cash Gold, the El Guapo food truck, and The Mac Shack, with music by DJ Dante LeSalle, Stan Sommerson, and more. The event will also incorporate a Slow Roll through the Dequindre Cut and Riverfront, departing at 7 p.m.
