I see we are lamenting the loss of another good restaurant, Maria's Front Room in Fabulous Ferndale. I never heard of the joint and I had relatives that lived there for 20+ years.

How many more places like this exist? Good food, good value, good service? Let's patronize them before they disappear.

I'll start: Monte's Grill at the Saranay Motel on Woodward in RO. Great burgers. But they close right after lunch.

Take a look here, Jrvass: https://www.atdetroit.net/forum/mes sages/5/133076.html?1206802177
It is way sad indeed. What I worry about is what will replace it. The city is putting in more and more night clubs, and places like BWW. It sucks to no end. F-Ferndale! (Sorry, I'm pissed)

Maria's was an excellent Italian restaurant. Too bad.

OK. This is to keep businesses alive... Not lament closed ones.

Hunter House on Woodward... good sliders and fries.

What are your favorites?

Is Cadena's still in downtown Detroit? GREAT Mexican food that I enjoyed on many a lunch hour. I think it was on Lafayette, but not sure.

Wow Grumpyoldlady I havent thought of Cadena's in years. Used to go there for lunch when I worked in the Detroit Bank and Trust building. (a very long time ago!). Cadena's was my first Mexican food experience.
