We’re all about a little Detroit food pride here at Daily Detroit, so wanted to share a neat nod we saw for two new Detroit restaurants and one in another city that’s hanging their hat on slinging Detroit-style pizza.
The Detroit entrants:
Ochre Bakery — opened by the founders of Astro Coffee down in Corktown, it’s already made a big splash. They use organic and local ingredients as much as they can, and their location is at Grand River and West Warren, near Woodbridge.
They also won a Motor City Match grant.
Ambitious coffee, bread, pastry, and breakfast situations in the cheeriest café
Warda Pâtisserie— Located between Lafayette Park and Eastern Market on Gratiot, they have sophisticated internationally-influenced pastries (specifically North Africa, France and Asia).
Outstanding pastries (both sweet and savory) as works of art.
And finally, there’s a spot out of Atlanta that’s serving Detroit style pizza. It’s called Nina & Rafi. Anyone down there have some intel on what it’s like? Get in touch. Here’s what Bon Appétit had to say:
A chef from Jersey makes Detroit-style pizza in Atlanta—and it couldn’t be more natural.
I’m always skeptical of Detroit-style pizza that isn’t from here, but in the name of research I’d be open to giving it a try.
