Almost any time someone asks me for a recommendation downtown Detroit for:
1. A birthday party
3. Out of town guests
4. Date night
5. Literally anything
All signs point to Townhouse, seriously. The atmosphere is incredible and the environment is gorgeous. A massive atrium takes up most of the restaurant seating space that is perfect for brunch in the summertime or a magical winter evening under the stars. I'm a huge fan of the Cauliflower Steak appetizer and the seared yellowfin tuna dinner. You cannot leave without getting the truffle fries, you're welcome.
