Last Friday night we went to Roast at the Westin Book Cadillac Hotel on Washington Boulevard here in Detroit. The bar decor is modern, moody, sleek and upscale. We were seated in a comfortable booth in a separate dining room adjacent to large picture windows facing Washington Blvd.
Just about everything on the menu is roasted, hence the name Roast. Several roasters flank the dining area and the kitchen is also on view. We enjoyed great service from our server who had two very attentive assistants.
I ordered roasted whitefish with roasted crab and mac & cheese, ooh yummy! My boyfriend had the filet (with sha sha sauce) and fried brussel sprouts. We shared the roasted shrimp appetizer, it came with white beans, pork sausage and tomato sauce, very tasty. Jazz music wafted through the dining room and the place got really busy as the night went on. The atmosphere is hip and trendy, the drinks are robust and the food is very flavorful. Overall, I had a wonderful time and hope to go back to Roast very soon!
