What is a food lover to make of Detroit? Michigan author Bill Loomis says he “went behind the graffiti and the ruins” to explore the city’s “food ways”, from its established Coney Island vendors and Eastern Market to more recent hipster bars and “pop up” restaurants, bakeries, taverns, so-called “underground” destinations and fine dining all over Detroit.It’s all in his latest book “Detroit Food: Coney Dogs to Farmers Markets”.

Loomis tells Current State that restaurants, coffee shops and pubs are opening up in Detroit neighborhoods that have been deserted for decades.
