EAT Detroit showcases our city’s diverse culinary scene with a one-of-a-kind experience benefitting our most underserved citizens, all in one night. Enjoy the chef’s featured dishes and craft drinks, as well as live musical entertainment, and help the initiatives of SAY Detroit that provide housing, food, medical care, education, veterans support and more to Detroiters in need at any age.
In the interest of providing you the best – and safest – experience we can, SAY Detroit has determined that hosting the event in 2021 would not allow us to meet our – and your – standards. But we are determined to come back better than ever in 2022!
A firm date will be announced, and you’ll be able to count down the days to dining at new and returning downtown, midtown, and Corktown establishments – look out for announcements confirming San Morello, Prime + Proper, Roast, Grey Ghost, Vertical, SheWolf Pastificio & Bar, Central Kitchen + Bar, Townhouse, Cork & Gabel, LaLanterna, Vicente’s Cuban Cuisine, Slows Bar BQ, Takoi, Leila, La Feria, Mootz Pizzeria, Chili Mustard Onions and more to come! (Try dine-in or takeout while you wait!)
If you’d like to get exclusive announcements about the official date, which restaurants are joining us, and when tickets are available, please add your name to the list here.
So how does EAT Detroit work?
In a nutshell: Wear your wristband, visit a restaurant, eat and drink and repeat until you’re full or the event ends.
Enjoy food and drink at participating restaurants, and stroll between locations, using our official shuttles for longer distances.
With a minimum of 3 specialty plates and 1 signature drink at each restaurant, you won’t go hungry or thirsty. Strolling wait staff and our recommended start will keep traffic flowing and eliminate lines!
EAT Detroit is modeled after Washington, DC’s Dine-N-Dash with chef José Andrés.
VIP attendees enjoy additional benefits, including a welcome reception and VIP-only restaurants.
