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.
