Rattlesnake Club

300 River Place Dr. , Stroh River Place
Detroit , Michigan , United States
(313) 567-4400

Despite being owned by Jimmy Schmidt, Detroit’s best known chef, Rattlesnake Club is somewhat of a foodies’ secret, tucked away on a side street just east of downtown. Everything coming out of the kitchen—sautéed Lake Ontario perch, ginger-laced Malpeque oysters, immense porterhouses—is exquisitely prepared and presented. The delicious Angus “Rattleburger” is sculpted with a flourish, served with a mix of blue cheese, chipotle aioli, and marmalade. The service is nothing short of impeccable, and alfresco dining along the Detroit River is available in summer.

Tip: Just to the right of the entrance, Rattlesnake Club’s sleek, modern wood bar has one of the city’s most expansive (and best) wine lists.
