Best New Restaurant in Wayne County

Republic Restaurant

Readers' Choice

1942 Grand River Ave., Detroit; 313-446-8360;

With its historic setting in the castle-like GAR Building, a kitchen attuned to nose-to-tail meatiness, and a run-up to opening that kept us in anticipation for months, Republic was a runaway smash hit when it opened last year. Sure, you can have satisfying dishes of country-style ham, seafood cassoulet, or grilled lamb, but you may be surprised how much flavor they're able to pack into their shareable Ploughman's plate.
