The 10 Restaurants That Defined Detroit Dining in 2022


In a strong year for dining, what were the absolute standouts?  We asked our contributors to the Resy Hit List to share their top 10 dining experiences from this year in their city — restaurants and meals that left and impression and helped to define the state of American dining right now. Please welcome back our Best of The Hit List for 2022. (You can read other cities’ top picks here.)

It’s that time of year again to look back at the last 12 months and wonder where it all went, while being grateful for all that’s still here and ahead. The past year is admittedly difficult to distill, thanks largely to lingering pandemic weirdnes, rocketing food and labor costs, and an eager if weary dining public. Still people have got to eat! And so Detroit’s restaurant world churns on, the new (Basan, Warda Patisserie) mingling with the familiar (Selden Standard).

But before we get too pensive, let’s celebrate the good that’s come from this strange year. To close out 2022, here are some of our hightlights — 10 Hit List favorites that defined so much about dining in town. Welcome to our 2022 Best of the Hit List for Detroit.
