Detroit News Best New Restaurants 2023 - Mongers' Provisions

Detroit News Best New Restaurants 2023

We made the Detroit News Best New Restaurants List of 2023!!

"When people know good ingredients and quality products, you can count on them to open a restaurant that showcases them in their best light. Mongers' Provisions is a high-end but super-friendly cheese and chocolate shop with locations in Berkley and Midtown. The former debuted a space called the Rind this fall that is being billed as a wine bar, but it is also a wonderful neighborhood restaurant. The meticulous and heavenly Caesar salad is served as a mound of supple romaine lettuce that is dusted with Parmesan and accented with perfectly placed Spanish anchovies. The vegan, crunchy radicchio salad smells and tastes of the holiday season with walnuts, apples, butternut squash and a persimmon vinaigrette. Among the few main dishes offered by chef Will BeDell and his team is a buttery and flaky Lake Superior whitefish in a beurre blanc sauce. You can also just sit at the Rind's bar or one of the low wooden tables and snack. The cheese and charcuterie selection, Marcona almonds, warm olives or tinned fish all go great with the wine selection, offered by bottle or glass. My only complaint is that the Rind is only open 12 hours a week. For a lunch fix, however, Monger's serves huge rusticlooking Italian subs and ham and butter sandwiches at the cheese counter. Reservations for large groups only. Open 5-9 p.m. Thurs.-Sat. 3125 12 Mile, Berkley. (248) 468-4487."
