Coach Insignia (address and info)
Where else in Detroit can you dine 700ft above the ground overlooking both Detroit and Canada? Only at Coach Insignia, one of the highest hotel restaurants in the Western Hemisphere. Because nothing says "romance" like vertigo. The massive restaurant, which inhabits all of the 71st and 72nd floors of the Renaissance Center's main tower, has plenty of space for semi-privacy so you and your date can enjoy dinner and drinks without sharing your conversation with your neighbors at the communal tables that are so popular at hipper dining spots. Coach is also a Wine Spectator Award of Excellence winner, and the place knows some things about steak.
Iridescence (address and info)
Another tall hotel, another outstanding city view. Detroit's only AAA four-diamond dining experience (through 2013, anyway) and another Wine Spectator Award of Excellence winner, Iridescence inside the MotorCity Casino is all ultra-modern LED chic compared to Coach's plush neutrals. It's more elegantly flashy to Coach's understated handsomeness, but if you're really looking to impress, this might be your best bet, thanks to items like Osetra caviar, foie gras torchon, and chateaubriand for two. But really, we eat with our eyes, and the view from the dining room is a feast in itself, perfect for creating a little... um, atmosphere.
