Diner

“Classic American diner fair but elevated and made very unique! This place doesn't take reservations so if you're trying to find a good spot without a crazy wait in Fulton Market, your best bet is to stop in here and put your name in. Then if the wait is long you can walk around and if you happen to find another restaurant you'd rather try out without a wait, then go for it! But at the very least you've got a really good restaurant to try our in your back pocket. ”

Greek Restaurant
$$
“This is another great Greektown gem. You can order a full meal or simply go here for pastry and coffee. Their baklava is wonderful as you would expect, but don't discount the awesomeness of the chocolate mousse. :) We sometimes do dinner at Greek Islands and then walk down the street to Artopolis for dessert.”
