Master Chef Jimmy Schmidt is well known around Detroit for his seafood and meat emporiums. His iconic Rattlesnake Club is a very open, airy and elegant space near the Detroit River (and despite the name, rattlesnake is not on the menu). What is on the menu, however, are seasonal dishes from a great selection of small plates to meat, fish and a char-grilled section. Huge flower arrangements and colorful paintings set off the oak tables and chairs in the main dining room. A porch area is also open for dining.
Detroit almost lost an institution when a fire nearly destroyed this acclaimed restaurant, but the Truant family rebuilt and recaptured every detail of this cozy, gorgeous place known for its delicious homemade pastas.
