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 featured dishes and craft drinks from top restaurants while helping SAY Detroit provide pathways to success for Detroiters in need through learning, health care, and housing.
While wearing your official event wristband, you’ll get access to participating restaurants, each serving a tasting menu of 3 specialty dishes and 1 signature drink, and no bill ever arrives. Attendees are also welcome to dine from Waka by Baobab Fare food truck and enjoy a free water ice dessert — at any time during the event! — at the Detroit Water Ice Factory.
Walk between restaurants, or hop on shuttle buses for longer distances between Downtown, Midtown, and Corktown. Greeting you at each restaurant — and on the shuttles and route stops — will be our EAT Detroit volunteers, who’ll be eager to answer your questions. You’ll recognize them because they’ll all be wearing our official 2023 EAT Detroit apron.
