400 Renaissance Center Ste. 1404, Detroit; 313-567-6837; joemuerseafood.com
The revival of the historic Muer name on a restaurant within Detroit city limits came in a partnership between Joe Muer and Andiamo's Joe Vicari, and it came just as Detroit's dining scene was becoming dynamic enough again to support it. The restaurant, with a beautiful waterfront view from its Renaissance Center perch, offers a sushi bar and superb brunch service alongside classic dinner menu offerings such as crab stuffed Atlantic Flounder. The cocktails and wine list are as on point as you'd expect. With food that exceeds the expectations set by its waterfront view and legendary name, Joe Muer is the best seafood restaurant in Wayne County.
