Topping the list is Michael Symon’s Roast, which opened in 2008 and is credited with kick-starting the current restaurant renaissance downtown, per the Detroit Free Press.

Located at 1128 Washington Blvd. in the Westin Book Cadillac Hotel, the celebrity chef’s restaurant is the top high-end steakhouse in Detroit, boasting four stars out of 868 reviews on Yelp.

Start your feast with the lamb neck risotto, roasted marrow or the chilled lobster appetizer with creme fraiche, avocado and grapefruit. For the main course, sink your teeth into filet mignon with crab bearnaise, a dry-aged ribeye with charred onion relish or the smoked pork chop with creamy polenta.

2. Texas de Brazil

Next up is downtown’s Texas de Brazil, situated at 1000 Woodward Ave. With four stars out of 409 reviews on Yelp, the steakhouse and Brazilian spot has proven to be a local favorite for carnivores looking to indulge.

The churrascaria, or Brazilian steakhouse, cooks a wide selection of meats over an open flame on large skewers and then carves them up tableside. Dinner is $44.99 for adults and includes unlimited meats — including filet mignon wrapped in bacon and parmesan-crusted pork loin — and trips to the salad bar.
