2008 Detroit Auto Show: Getting There Page 2

2004 Detroit Auto Show

Eating at the auto show is not something we'd recommend (Pizza Queen and Island House Fudge don’t exactly make a well-balanced meal), but there are plenty of great eateries close to Cobo that will take good care of your hunger. The iconic Lafayette Coney Island is located a reasonable five blocks from Cobo. We recommend a classic Coney dog with chili and heavy onions. Just watch for spills … and for goodness sake, get some Tic Tacs on the way out the door. 118 West Lafayette Blvd. (313) 964-8198

If you're at the show for work, escape the madness at The Caucus Club. Just two blocks from Cobo, consider this Detroit landmark's clubby atmosphere to be the perfect spot for a high-powered business lunch. 150 W. Congress (313) 965-4970

For even fancier fare, just three miles North of Cobo is The Rattlesnake Club. It's a place where you can dine on the award-winning cuisine presented by chef Jimmy Schmidt. (Yes, Detroiters do appreciate fine dining, regardless of what people from New York or L.A. think.) His restaurant's riverfront views and soaring atrium make a wonderful setting for an excellent meal. 300 River Place Drive  (313) 567-4400

Regardless of where you stuff your gut, enjoy the show and Detroit. Mayor Kilpatrick thanks you.
