My family and I came here for a free show the Detroit Symphony was hosting. This was my first time listening to the symphony and being inside the Orchestra Hall. Both are beautiful, and I’d recommend a visit.

When we went to the DSO we ate at the Zenith. You have to drive there but it was worth it. Great menu, funky decor, good prices. I wrote a review you can look up that mentions some items on the menu.
