Dinner at Wright & Company, Detroit
On Day Two in Detroit we went for a late dinner at Wright & Company after taking in a Tigers' game.
Wright & Company is easy walking distance from the baseball park and their kitchen was open relatively late so it seemed like the perfect place.
Located on the second floor of historic Detroit building, it feels very fancy to take an elevator up to dinner and to step out the doors straight into the beautiful restaurant overlooking the city. I particularly loved the aesthetic of their logo design. (Am I the only one who notices things like that?)
Another great cocktail, although slightly fruitier than I usually go for. I picked this one, called "The Tipping Point", because it featured house blueberry shrub and ginger beer.
The first dish was also my favourite: Main Crab Toast. This crab was insane! It was so flavourful, so moist, and so juicy, that we would have ordered it again for desert if we hadn't been so full! The toast on the bottom was crispy and just a little bit of pickled melon on top added some tang.
Tuna Tartare with crispy wontons and soy. I liked the mix of textures here with the crispy wontons and the fish tasted very fresh.
Heirloom tomatoes and burrata with aged balsamic and micro basil. Again, everything in this dish tasted impossibly fresh, like it came from a farm in the backyard.
Scallops with yellow squash puree and chive butter. This dish reminded me why I love scallops and made me wonder why I don't order them more often! The only thing that would have made me love them more would be if they were browned and caramelized on both sides instead of just the top.
Cannelloni with eggplant ricotta filling. They pretty much had me sold with the words "eggplant" and "ricotta". Also didn't disappoint.
Finally, we finished the meal with one of my all-time favourite foods: steak. I've eaten a LOT of steaks in my life so although this one was delicious and I have nothing to complain about, it didn't quite make it into the top tier. Like I said, it was tasty and there was nothing wrong with it at all, but the miso corn sauce didn't do much to elevate it into the steak-stratosphere.
All in all, this was another delicious dinner in Detroit!
