Where to eat during the Detroit auto show: Restaurants, food trucks

When hungry car enthusiasts flock to the North American International Auto Show, plenty of popular Detroit eateries are ready to welcome diners with a wide scope of culinary tastes.

The Detroit auto show returns after three and a half years, including a two-year pandemic pause, in a new format.

While many of the show’s exhibits remain at Huntington Place (formerly TCF Center, Cobo Center and Cobo Hall), test driving opportunities and other attractions are spread out to outdoor areas downtown.

Within several blocks of the exhibits and show attractions — which include a 60-foot-tall rubber duck and a walk-through dinosaur experience — there are dozens of restaurants awaiting auto show crowds. There will also be food trucks at Hart Plaza. And on weekdays, if you travel up Woodward Avenue to Cadillac Square (across from Campus Martius ) there’s the long-running Downtown Street Eats food truck program.

Detroit's renovated Anchor Bar reopened April 4 for the 2019 Detroit Tigers Opening Day.

Dennis Archer Jr., owner of Central Kitchen + Bar is excited about the returning, revamped auto show, and said his restaurant has benefitted from past auto shows.

“We are very excited that the auto show is coming downtown and that it affords the opportunity for those who have never been to the restaurant or those that have not been down recently to become reacquainted,” he said.
