The last year has been no cakewalk for Detroit-area restaurants, each having faced seemingly insurmountable challenges that forced unpredictable pivots on the fly. Through it all, there’ve also been plenty of reasons to celebrate — new restaurants bringing novel cuisines and approaches to the scene while old standbys provided their own sense of comfort.

We wanted to highlight our absolute Hit List favorites from 2021 as we close out the year. So please welcome our Best of The Hit List for Detroit. It’s a memorable year, in every way.
