Although the Detroit location of Las Cazuelas Grill is housed in the same building as a BP gas station, the cuisine was never meant to be road food. Maria Cristina Aldana began by learning her husband's recipes for iconic Mexican dishes and she named her restaurant after the traditional terracotta dishes used in Hispanic kitchens. These home-style touches demonstrate Maria's commitment to creating familiar, satisfying meals. She makes grilled steak, marinated pork, and chicken mainstays throughout the menu, and she uses them in everything from tacos and burritos to tortas and quesadillas. Three salsas can add a fresh dose of spice to any meal, and diners can customize their tacos by ordering them with corn, flour, or a taxpayer identification number spelled out in tomatoes. Those looking seeking a sit-down dining experience can visit the Melvindale location and savor Maria Cristina's same authentic Mexican recipes.

Detroit’s urban-farming organizations believe in treating the city as an ecosystem, nurturing the bond between community gardens, downtown Detroit restaurants, and residents. By supporting the development of agriculture in blighted areas, these groups hope to create jobs and deepen individuals’ connections to the foods they eat.
Here’s a look at five urban-farming organizations and some of the restaurants that support their causes.
ACREIn a nutshell: The farm harvests more than 30 kinds of fruits and vegetables, specializing in growing rare heirloom varieties such as the cosmic purple carrot and the moon and stars watermelon.Restaurant partner: Astro Coffee uses some of ACRE’s organic produce to make its baked goods and sandwiches whenever possible.
In a nutshell: This 2-acre organic farm in Rouge Park was founded by the Detroit Black Community Food Security Network and grows crops including kale and tomatoes.Restaurant partner: In addition to buying D-Town Farm’s produce, Colors–Detroit supports the farm’s mission of empowerment by hiring unemployed community residents, providing valuable restaurant job training and work experience.Food FieldIn a nutshell: Situated on the site of the abandoned Peck Elementary School, the 4-acre Food Field features rows of sprouting vegetables, a fruit orchard, more than 50 egg-laying hens, honeybees, and a pond stocked with catfish and bluegill.Restaurant partner: Brooklyn Street Local supports its community while creating the smallest possible environmental footprint. To accomplish both goals, chefs use ingredients from urban farms, including Food Field, when preparing poutine, vegan breakfast scrambles, and other healthy comfort foods.Green Toe GardensIn a nutshell: Green Toe Gardens has created 100 beehives in urban farms, community gardens, and yards across the city and the inner-ring suburbs.
