When will it ever end? The roll call of new eateries is getting difficult to keep track of as seen in this Freep.com Article
. I've only made it to two on the list - Ottava Via and La Feria - loved the first - the second was so so but they had just opened and I hear they have improved greatly.
Any reviews or thoughts? BTW the Freep use of term downtown is rather broad. Here is the roll call.
Wright & Co.
, 1500 Woodward: in the stately old Wright Kay building in the heart of downtown at Woodward and John R.
1428 Gratiot: This meticulously restored Art Deco spot in the Eastern Market district opened softly last week.
, 22 W. Adams: Opened July 1, this three-level, 5,000-square-foot restaurant features a big Mexican menu.
Downtown Louie’s Lounge
, 30 Clifford: A hidden gem just west of Woodward and south of Grand Circus Park
, 1400 Michigan: Set in an atmospheric old bank… Patio with fireplace in back.
Two James Spirits
, 2445 Michigan: first licensed distillery in Detroit since Prohibition… doesn't serve food yet..
, 4130 Cass: charming tapas place near Wayne
, 8047 Agnes: Set in the artfully renovated former Harlequin Café in historic West Village
The Grille Midtown
, 3919 Woodward: New building next to restored theater
On the way

, 2 Washington Blvd.: contemporary fine-dining menu should be a match for the sweeping view and impressive room.
