Detroit: where everything good in America came from. (Bourdain said it so it's gotta be true, right?) It definitely applies to the food and drink, like the sauce-topped coney dogs that could start a turf war among locals claiming their favorite coney spot is the best or the 100-deep classic drink menu from cocktail-haven Sugar House, one of the best cocktail bars in the country. These are the spots where locals (and Bourdain, probably) get their coney on. Plus, all the other restaurants and bars folks in the D head to once they wipe that all-meat chili sauce off their faces.
If you want more places to eat and drink, head to Thrillist Detroit for hot openings and the rest of our longtime favorites.
