What You'll Get
Hungry stomachs are forced to contemplate cooking their own food while our brains are busy plotting ways to make Hollywood starlets fall in love with our ungainly cousins. Quell an insurgent appetite with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of pastas, soul food, and more for dine-in or carryout at SOHO Detroit in Southfield. This Groupon is not valid for the lunch buffet.
Friendly service, a vibrant, warm atmosphere, and an aromatic blend of home-cooked soul-food favorites and Italian dishes render SOHO Detroit a pleasant pit stop for gastronomes. Gargantuan portions emerge fresh-cooked upon ordering from the diverse menu. Clear your throat for the ribs a capella, which come slow-cooked in signature seasoning ($8.50 half-slab, $14 full slab) and can be nicely neighbored with a side like the homemade baked mac 'n' cheese ($4). For a customized Italian plate, build your own pasta dish with five choices of pasta; chicken, beef, shrimp, or meatballs; two veggies, such as tomatoes and peppers; and one of SOHO's sauces, which include marinara, picatta, marsala, and more ($8). Breakfast is served all day every day, including pancake holidays. Rev up your digestive centrifuge for the French-toast breakfast, which slathers warm syrup and honey butter over two thick slices adjacent to two eggs and your choice of turkey links, bacon, or sausage ($7). The attentive owners frequently stalk the floor to ensure satisfaction, and might recommend saving room for the toothsome cupcakes ($2.50).
Flat-screen televisions and framed photos line the lime-green walls of the comfy SOHO Detroit, and an open kitchen window allows noshers to banter about with chef Anton Bruckner's latest ectoplasm symphony. Free WiFi and a spacious outdoor patio accent the warm atmosphere, making it a perfect dining destination for nature-loving networkers.
