CITY GUIDES | Detroit with Chef Sarah Welch

Sarah Welch shows you how to fall in love with the city she calls home.

September 19, 2019

Detroit. Motor City. Birthplace of Motown Records. And home of chef Sarah Welch, executive chef and partner of Marrow, Detroit's first neighborhood restaurant and butcher shop hybrid. 

Born in nearby Ann Arbor, MI, Sarah spent a large portion of her childhood in Jamaica. It was there that she discovered her passion for food, travel, and cooking. After honing her skills in the kitchens of NYC, Welch returned to Michigan and has been cooking in some of Detroit's best restaurants since. Here's her go-to spots in the city she calls home. 

BREAKFAST

Breakfast in Detroit breaks down into two main categories: with booze and without. For a classic breakfast, hit up The Clique for a cinnamon roll and tiny flapjacks. They make a mean scramble too. For a boozy beverage with your breakfast, check out Folk in Corktown; healthy, hearty and locally sourced.

LUNCH

In my world lunch calls for noodles, so head to Ima for stellar udon and ramen. If you’re looking for upscale, try Selden Standard–its lunch always includes steak options and charred veggies. More of a sandwich person? Detroit Institute of Bagels is a must for boiled and baked daily bagel sandwiches with local fillings and house-made cream cheese. They also have a bangin’ soup of the day and salad du jour!

DINNER

Go to Takoi for a fun and flavorful dinner and get the crispy rice salad and ribs or dive right into their multi-course chef selection. If you are more into a classic dinner, SheWolf makes fresh pasta from flour milled in house. The traditional pasta like cacio e pepe is incredible (and it can be dressed up into a carbonara if you are a meat lover)!
