American

Top of the Pontch is an over-the-top Las Vegas-style fine-dining restaurant with one of the best views of any restaurant in the city, overlooking the Detroit River. Chef Justin Vaiciunas is one of the youngest and most ambitious Executive Chefs working in the city, and he flexes his love of intricate molecular gastronomy presentations and top-tier seafood to create a singularly luxe experience. There are dishes that are smoked and set on fire tableside, and the menu has some helpful tasting notes for unfamiliar items. The stuffed sea urchin is a standout, but if you're feeling splurge-y (and you should, because you're here), order the tasting menu, which changes in size and theme monthly.
