Topic Wiki

This Wiki is far from complete so please add to it!

The main Jewish Community is located in Oak Park/Southfield.
There are other smaller parts in the Young Israel of Southfield neighborhood and also West Bloomfield.
Getting there:
Best option: 7.5k avios from LGA/PHL
10k UA from EWR
Or DL 12.5k, sometimes 7.5k
Often there are cheap paid fares on Frontier from Trenton(TTN)
Or ACY on spirit
It's 10 hours drive from NYC & 9+ from Lakewood.
If renting a oneway from hertz, drop at centerline, MI.

Where to stay:
People are very hospitable!
There are no hotels within walking distance to the main Jewish community.
The Westin in Southfield isn't far by car.
The airport Sheraton is now a Cat 1.

Where to eat:

Prime10 is centrally located, and probably the best kosher flayshigs in Detroit.
They have a decent lunch special. Expect to pay $35 plus per person.

Kravings is a very solid, centrally located burger/sandwich/sushi/shabbos takeout place.
They are open Thursday nights until 1ish with Cholent.
Meals start at around $10.

Sara's in the oak park JCC, very solid deli the oak park JCC is (permanently) closed, and so is Sara's.

Dave's is currently closed.

Jerusalem Pizza has plenty of specialty pizzas.
Their regular pies are thick and smallish.
They also offer a "New York style" pie.
They have plenty of calzones. Bread sticks/cheese sticks are a must.
Order by phone if youre in a rush as they usually take 15mins to get you your pizza.
They also have a branch in the West Bloomfield JCC.

the soul cafe in west bloomfield is a nice dairy place a bit more upscale then the rest
One Stop supermarket also sells take-out pizza inside their store.

Gold N Greens is in the Wayne County Cafeteria. They are only open when college is in session.
They are not Cholov Yisroel. It costs about $8 for all you can eat: pizza, bread sticks, soy stuff, salads, desserts, soft ice cream, sodas, chocolate milk, OJ... Kids 5& under are free. 6-12 is $4.

Zemans bakery is centrally located and is very solid.
Dunkin Donuts/baskin Robbins is kosher and also centrally located.

Selling 2/4 tickets to 'The Tenors' this Sat night at 9 at the Ceasars Windsor.  Good seats!


They are a great live performance if you've never seen them.

The wiki says no hotel within walking distance to the Jewish community. Has anything changed since? I'm looking for one anywhere within walking distance to an Orthodox shul (including Ann Arbor, Southfield, Oak Park, etc).

The closest to Southfield /OP is probably the Westin Southfield. Really nice place. Good luck in not bumping into a couple dates there

Thanks. Unfortunately it's not within the eruv and a little far. But if there's no other choice then Westin it is!

I am arriving in Detroit in the late evening and interested in carry out from a meat restaurant. Thoughts on Kravings or Dave's gourmet? Seeking a good burger. Similarity to the Ken's Diner burger buddy a plus.

Definitely Kravings for a burger!

Lunchtime 3 hour connection in DTW.
Worth going to any Jerusalem Pizza, Prime 10, Wok In Cari Out, or?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

There's no pizza store with the unique variety of Jerusalem Pizza's toppings. It's not the best pizza in the world but it's an experience and I think you'd like it.

+1 but if you want a little nicer dairy check out Soul Cafe.

Definitely Jerusalem Pizza. Call in your order b4 cuz it can take some time. They pan fry their pizzas through a conveyer belt oven. I may be a little biased, but itís my favorite pizza as their crust doesnít taste like cardboard like most pizza shops. They have pretty good calzones too. Donít miss their BBQ pizza, cheese sticks and Jerusalem bread IMHO.
