Celebrated my birthday at the Roast (Chef Symon) . Over all experience was good. Situated near historic places in downtown Detroit. Nice ambiance, good food as i expected but our waitstaff (Greg) ruined the night. He was not enthused as he explained the dishes, not attentive...we had to wait and wait for him to come by and check on us. There was a long wait between our apps, main entree and dessert.

Beef Tartare, poached cold egg, avocado and lime, crostini. This was good, i like the avocado lime, tartare combination.

Crispy Veal Sweetbreads, Cauliflower, roasted grapes, hazelnuts
Not really a fan ;( but my daughter loved it.

Roasted Marrow, sea salt, oregano, capers and chilies. My favorite ;)

Beast of the day- roasted pork, salsa verde, crispy tortillas,chili broth
Love the flavor of the beast ;)

Sides : Spinach, feta cheese Au gratin

Sides: Brussels sprouts and walnuts
This is the only way i cook my Brussels sprouts and i got the recipe from, of course.. Chef Symon.

Sides: Rosemary addicting!!!

Peach Blueberry Crisp served warm with corn crumble, cinnamon, and sweet corn ice cream
I have tasted a better version of this.

Porter Beer Ice cream, chocolate covered pretzels, caramel foam
Nice flavor combination

Me and my daughter....Thanks, Pam...I love you!!!
