My wife and I get around to quite a few restaurants in Detroit, but we almost never go to Corktown. Been to Slows a bunch of times. Question is, where would you recommend we take some semi reluctant suburbanites who want to Corktown for dinner??
Thanks for any help!

Baile Corcaigh on the corner of Bagley and Trumbull.

"A little off the beaten path in the heart of the historic district, diners at the Baile Corcaigh on Bagley savor their warm Irish soda bread, sitting among the tables dressed in white linen, the handcrafted stone fireplace, shiny glasses and dark wood furnishings, while waiting for their crab cakes and steaks in whiskey sauce. The Baile Corcaigh (the Gaelic name translates to “town of Cork,” and feel free to call it by its Anglicized version, “Bally Cork”) also opened last year. It serves dressed-up pub fare — the kind of well-prepared, inspired, fresh takes on classic dishes that has become de rigueur at trendy, upscale UK pubs. So along with your bangers and mash you can try a salad of crisp mixed spring greens tossed with Irish blue cheese, or start with crepes filled with a dreamily rich mushroom and spinach mixture."

according to forumer pmardo, they have a special on wednesdays... Free chips (fries) and $1 off pints for happy hour... sounds like I need to go...
Also, don't forget Mudgies... (in the old Eph Mcnally's)

I took my family to Baile Corcaigh a couple weeks ago and everyone had a great time... as usual. However, I noticed a lot more cars in the lot than people upstairs. Is there a bar downstairs? I thought I heard some bar-sounding activity down there.

I think they usually use the room downstairs for special events. Their web page says they have an Irish book club there once a month.

Drop ceilings or no, the place is really good.

Don't forget a burger and chips at Nemos. I don't know about the food at Hoots.

Very funny Wood. Funny because it's true. With all the Wexford Cream Ale I've purchased there they should have just about enough $ to refurbish the original tin ceiling.
