Restaurant Review: Detroit, Michigan

Motor City Wine


It’s not much to look at, but if you’re into wine and music, Motor City Wine is a must-stop. Owners David and Melissa Armin-Parcells book live jazz and deep vinyl DJ sets every night in their wine bar/retail store, the selections as eclectic as the music. The wines by the glass are priced to sell and go down easily; for more esoteric finds, pull a bottle from the retail shelves; corkage is only $8. Recent finds include Damien Coquelet Chiroubles and Foradori Teroldego. In lieu of a full-service kitchen, they host regular pop-ups, including a vegan pop-up every Monday. Pro tip: The patio is one of the best in town, and with Ameztoi Rubentis Txakolina Rosé by the glass, you can’t go wrong.
