One of the first restaurants that I went to in Detroit was Coach Insignia back in August. My friend had a Groupon so a couple of us girls dressed up to the nines. Coach Insignia is a beautiful fancy restaurant found on the 71st and 72nd of the GM Renaissance Center in downtown Detroit with a great view of the city and river.
Appetizer: Crème Brulee of Brie (Caramelized Brie, Candied Almonds, Fresh Berries, Crispy Bread) and Fried Lobster Corn Dogs (Napa Cabbage Salad, Stone Ground Mustard Veluote)
Dinner: Sautéed Jumbo Scallops (Sweet Corn, Spinach, Leeks, Fingerling Potatoes, Tomato, Bacon, Warm Potato & Chive Vinaigrette)
Dessert: Italian Almond Torte (Dark Chocolate Gelato)
At times, I find myself drawing up parallels between Chicago and Detroit–river, water front, skyline etc etc. Coach Insignia reminded me a lot of the Signature Room and Lounge on the 95th and 96th floors of the Hancock Building in Chicago. Except, well, I have yet to make it up to the Signature Lounge. Just another place to go 🙂
