Few places can offer the same type of dish for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert. Even fewer can do so while transporting your mind to Paris?but Good Girls Go To Paris Crepes does just that, charming guests and the New York Times with its impressive selection of crepes and its decor. Good Girls' rouge-red walls are decorated with oversized street maps and a Jean-Luc Godard film poster; its crepes are decorated with all manner of sweet and savory fixings.

Each crepe has a name, and true regulars will know just who to order. Vera, for example, contains a mix of bacon, boursin cheese, and spinach, whereas Pascalle holds fig jam and chevre, or goat cheese. Celeste is a little heartier, with roast beef and brie offsetting the tartness of cranberries. Every savory crepe is also available as a salad, or, if you simply unfold it, a very thin pizza.

As for the dessert crepes, they cover mixes of chocolate, fruits, and candies. The Cora hides strawberries and blueberries?a light contrast to the Tynysha's rich Heath bar, ricotta cheese, and chocolate filling. The simplest option, the Seine, delights with its classic flavors of butter and sugar.

It's Friday night at 1 a.m., and all you want in the whole world is a taco. Luckily, Armando's Mexican Restaurant is there, ready to serve you a dish and maybe pour you a margarita nightcap. Though it's open late, Armando's is no sleepy dive—even after midnight, it's typical to see a line of people waiting to snag one of the tile-topped tables. Nearly a half-century after opening—and almost 30 years after the Tigers celebrated their 1984 World Series title there—the restaurant is still one of the city's most beloved. The Huffington Post recently named it as a staple of Detroit's Mexican-food scene. CBS Local praised their signature sizzling fajitas for their juicy marinade, and also declared that Armando's has "one of the best tortas" in Detroit.

Aside from the lauded, eclectic menu—which includes Cuban sandwiches, Spanish steak, and the perennially popular Baja seafood tacos—it's easy to see why the restaurant retains such a following. Warm yellow walls hung with vintage photos give the dining room a homey feel, while a covered patio beckons with colorful flags and twinkling lights. The casual atmosphere invites guests to linger over a peach margarita while watching the game on flat-screen TVs, or to camp out at a table once mariachi players begin to strum a lively tune. Luckily, Armando's makes it hard for anyone to overstay their welcome: they're open until 2 a.m. Sunday–Thursday and until 4 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.

Roma Caf? started out as a one-woman operation way back in 1888. The Marazza family ran a boarding house for Eastern Market farmers, and Mrs. Marazza would always serve a hot meal to anyone who stayed. Word of her cooking skills spread quickly throughout the Eastern Market area, and her various fans convinced her to open an official restaurant. In February of 1890, Roma Caf? was born.

Its continuing commitment to classic recipes is apparent from one glance at the menu, where housemade pastas share space with veal scaloppine and broiled lobster tails. Adventurous eaters will be drawn to dishes such as the sauteed sweetbreads and frog legs, and wine enthusiasts can browse an extensive list of reds, whites, and specials.

Although the baked lasagna and chicken parmigiana are certainly Old World staples, Roma Caf? hasn't become mired in tradition. Its third-generation owner, Janet Sossi Belcoure, takes regular trips to Italy that keep her up-to-date on culinary trends and the latest gossip on who's dating Michelangelo's David. The restaurant also offers an all-you-can-eat buffet on Monday nights, complete with appetizers, pasta dishes, and cannoli. If you stop by on the night of a Red Wings game, there's even a shuttle that will take you to the arena.

As guests sit down to eat at Taste of Ethiopia, the first thing placed on the table is a bowl of steamy washcloths. True to the traditional style of Ethiopian cuisine, dishes are served family-style and without silverware; instead, patrons eat with their hands, using gluten-free flatbread called injera.

Jane Slaughter of the Metro Times praised the flavors of the menu, crafted by Chef Meskerem Gebreyohannes, as ?so deep and so true ? you?ve never really experienced a lentil or a collard so intimately.? Doro we?t, a spicy, slow-cooked chicken stew, celebrates generous amounts of onion as well as the traditional hard-boiled eggs it?s served with. Berbere, a distinctive Ethiopian blend of 12 spices, perfumes dishes of split red lentils and marinated cubes of lamb with rue seed, basil, cardamom, and other aromas.

In her article, Slaughter also relished the restaurant?s distinctive and convivial experience. To encourage the family-style experience, patrons rest around a traditional wicker table with their muskets in plain view, and chef Gebreyohannes makes frequent appearances in the dining room to chat.

As he toiled away on the assembly line at Ford Motor Company, autoworker Karl Kurz dreamed of opening a traditional German tavern like those he remembered from his hometown of Weikersheim, Germany. In 1933, he finally got his chance, working nights and weekends to convert a dilapidated Chinese hand laundry into a tiny bar that he called the Dakota Inn Rathskeller.

Eighty years later, the Rathskeller—now run by Karl's grandson—has expanded from three tiny stools to 2,000 square feet. The eclectic décor pays tribute to Karl's memory: trophy animal heads and RV hood ornaments seized during family hunting trips decorate the walls, and hand-painted murals depict scenes from Karl's life, including a rabbit hunt and a group of friends downing enormous mugs of beer. Through arched porticos, waiters in traditional German-style garb deliver Bavarian bratwurst, pork schnitzel, and German-style potato pancakes known as kartoffelpuffer. At night, the hand-carved walls reverberate with German drinking songs such as the “Schnitzelbank”—or woodworker’s bench—as if in tribute to Karl’s remodeling efforts.
