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.

Bon Appétit Magazine nominated the places on the way to their “Hot 10” list to be revealed September 17 in New York City.

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.

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.
