Mission + Vision

The mission of Southwest Detroit Restaurant Week is to organize an annual event to uplift Latin cuisine, change the way in which consumers interact and perceive our neighborhood, and expand cultural learning and inclusion.
For SW Detroit Restaurant Week, since the price point of the meals is already quite affordable, the goal is to present a “heritage dish” that is representative of the culture and country of each restaurant. The dish will only be available during the celebratory week. We hope that the experience will make it easy to try new foods and enjoy a meal prepared as a full, cultural experience. Additionally, dining participants will come to understand that, while much of Southwest Detroit is identified as Mexicantown, there is a variety of other countries represented in all the foods of this dynamic area of the city.
La misión de SW Detroit Restaurant Week es organizar un evento anual para elevar la cocina Latina, cambiar la manera en que los consumidores interactúan y perciben nuestro barrio, y amplificar el aprendizaje cultural y la inclusión.
Para SW Detroit Restaurant Week, dado que el precio de las comidas ya es bastante accesible, el objetivo es presentar un “platillo de herencia” que sea representativo de la cultura y el país de cada restaurante. El plato solo estará disponible durante la semana de celebración. Esperamos que la experiencia fsacilite probar nuevos alimentos y disfrutar de una comida preparada como una experiencia cultural y completa. Además, los participantes en la cena comprenderán que, si bien gran parte del suroeste de Detroit se identifica como Mexicantown, existe una gran variedad de otros países representados en todos los alimentos de esta dinámica zona de la ciudad.
