Return visit to Cuisine, Detroit: We recently enjoyed our second visit to Cuisine and just like the first time, the second time was just as amazing. We arrived at Cuisine around 6:30 pm on a Saturday evening. We did not have reservations, however we managed to get the last table.
What we enjoyed: On this evening we enjoyed their 3 course progressive menu which included a house bread, a starter, main course and desert.
Starters: The Lobster Bisque with peekytoe crab and milk froth was amazing. Sometimes a lobster bisque can have a bite or be a little spicy. Cuisine’s bisque was not and can only be describe as amazing. Crispy shrimp with sweet and sour sauce was also excellent.
Main course: The beef short rib served with goat cheese over noodles was fabulous. The beef was very tender and moist and the goat cheese just put it over the edge in a positive way.
What we shared: We shared the butter nut squash risotto. I have trouble passing up butter nut squash as well as risotto, however pulling both of them together is just wonderful.
What we drank: We all enjoyed the 2012 Neyers Chardonnay, from the Carneros region. It was a very nice Chard, dry and oakey but not overly done.
Sweets: The mixed berry tart for desert was excellent and I was hoping that they had take home by the quart but unfortunately they did not.
Parking: Parking was pretty easy, we ended up parking directly in front of the restaurant. There is a parking machine, it is $1 per hour for parking.
Property details: Cuisine is locate in the New Center area. Situated at 670 Lothrop Rd, Detroit in a historical house with paid street parking. Cuisine participates in Open Table which is helpful for reserving a table.
