Cuisine Detroit
Cuisine Detroit

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.
