This morning finds The Washington Post featuring a piece on Detroit dining, and no missteps here. That's because it's by veteran Detroit writer Rebecca Powers, who was editor at Hour Detroit and Detroit Home. You can feel the home turf advantage in the way Powers alludes to sports, square pizza, and coney dogs.

But the meat of the article is embodied in those three important meals. It starts off with breakfast at the Dime Store, winner of Metro Times Best Diner in the Detroit-Wayne County category last year, and one of MT's featured black-owned eateries. For lunch, Powers foregoes the pleasures of Detroit deep dish for a visit to Supino Pizzeria, the better to show off historic Eastern Market. For dinner, it's Selden Standard, which, of course, was last year's winner of Best Restaurant  in the Detroit-Wayne County category. (In 2016, Hour also named Selden Standard tops in its field.) Powers notes how diners approved of the vegetable carpaccio, featured in MT's Flavor guide ("Detroit dishes worth describing in detail") in December, and closes by noting Selden Standard's owners have big plans ahead.
