In addition to the burgers, the menu includes fresh salads, Cuban inspired pressed sandwiches, churros and alcoholic beverages, featuring seasonal cocktails.

Karl's - Downtown

The latest from award-winning chef Kate Williams (Lady of the House, Republic), Karl's is an old style, vintage diner inside the Siren Hotel in Downtown Detroit. It's also a music venue. "Come for breakfast. Catch up at lunch. Grab dinner and drinks. See a show."

Savant - Midtown

A new French and American cuisine-themed restaurant has opened in the former Bolero space in Forest Avenue and Woodward. Get yourself a bump of caviar on a gold leaf. You deserve it. The menu features dishes such as foie gras éclairs, burgers, croque monsieur, and croissant biscuits and gravy. Their cocktail menu looks amazing, too.
