Overview


While some restaurants come and go with little fanfare, others are dearly missed and never forgotten. In 1962, patrons of the Caucus Club were among the first to hear the voice of an eighteen-year-old Barbra Streisand. Before Stouffer’s launched a frozen food empire, it was better known for its restaurants with two popular locations in Detroit. The Machus Red Fox was the last place former Teamsters president Jimmy Hoffa was seen alive. Through stories and recipes nearly lost to time, author Paul Vachon explores the history of the Motor City’s fine dining, ethnic eateries and everything in between. Grab a cup of coffee—he’s got stories to share.
