We had a fabulous meal at Vinsetta Garage with our friends Rebecca and Rick when we were back in Detroit. Vinsetta Garage used to be a car repair garage and workshop, which is very obvious when you walk in. It's run by the same people who run the Union in Clarkston that I blogged about back in August, so you know the food is going to be great - and it was!
There's no shortage of staff and there's a lunch and a dinner menu. Food and drinks came out smartly and we really enjoyed it. This place has got a huge following after only opening up in mid-summer this year. They don't take bookings and the line runs down the street at lunch and dinner, so we headed in at 3.30pm for a late lunch/early dinner and we got a table without any trouble. The menu changes from lunch to dinner at 4pm.
I had the duck burger (Maple Leaf Farms duck patty, cherry compote, caramelised onions, gruyere and arugula) with a side of Mac & Cheese. My choice was really yummy and the sizes aren't crazy - I managed to eat it all, which is unheard of for me in America. That said, Rebecca ordered the Mac & Cheese as her main meal and it could have fed a hungry family of four. Luckily they're happy to box up anything you can't manage so you can take it home.
Burgers and pizzas (called pies) seem to be their thing, and they do it well. Give Vinsetta Garage a try!
