The Whitney makes the top 10 outdoor havens in the Metro Detroit area

Molly Abraham of the Detroit News recently gave The Whitney a nod as she posted it as one of the Top 10 outdoor havens in the Metro Detroit area.

Excerpt from the Detroit News: July 23, 2009

It's the height of summer, the perfect time for savoring the season at restaurants that offer al fresco seating. We're not talking about sidewalk cafés. Although sitting at a table on a busy sidewalk has its own appeal, the best outdoor dining involves gardens, waterfront terraces and secluded courtyards away from the exhaust fumes.

It's about places that offer something a little extra in addition to the fresh air and sunshine of Metro Detroit in summer.

The Whitney

Tables are set in the shadow of a 125-year-old American beech tree; there's a bubbling fountain and a winding path around the grounds of the vintage mansion. And a bistro menu of very aff0ordable fare is a plus. Typical bistro dishes: Chicken and ricotta crêpe with spinach/orange salad, roasted turkey club on toasted sourdough. An extra: If it starts to rain, you can duck into the house, and, in fact, even if it doesn't, garden diners are invited to tour the interior. 4421 Woodward Ave., Detroit; (313) 832-5700.
