The August Hit List: Hazel’s, Olin, Vigilante, and More


The dog days of summer may be here, but their typical languidness is nowhere to be found on the Detroit-area restaurant beat. While Clawson’s Weiss Distilling Co. tries on yet another seasonal identity and Hazel’s in Birmingham welcomes the return of summer lobster season, the dogs are barking in Troy, where Two Hands recently debuted its Korean-style corn dog concept.

This month, we also welcome newcomers Vigilante Kitchen in Midtown, Salt + Ko in Southfield, the third (and most official) iteration of the Secret Bakery in Ferndale, and new chefs at the McClain’s downtown Detroit properties Olin and Highlands. All that and more in your August Resy Hit List.
