The "Best Of Detroit" is Real Detroit Weekly's annual listing of the Detroit area's best bars, restaurants and entertainment. The list is released each February and this year 43 Royal Oak establishments were included.
"Best Of issue is a go-to guide, a collection, a historical reference for the things we’ve collectively excelled at and the advancements we’ve made as a community rich in food, ambiance, music, art and design," Real Detroit editors wrote.
Here's a look at the best of Detroit that can be found in Clawson:
Best Drink Prices: Renshaw
"Located in the scenic community of Clawson, Renshaw is one of OUR favorite places to get a cheap drink, so we weren't at all surprised when our readers agreed they had the best drink prices around. Home to daily specials like $2 22-ounce drafts of Labatt Blue and Coors light, they've also got a beer list even the haughtiest of craft brew snobs couldn't turn their nose up to. With local brews from New Holland Brewing, Arcadia, Rochester Mills, MIP, Frankenmuth Brewing and many more, they also have exotic brews from around the world. Our favorite? St. Bernardus ABT 12, a 10.5% ABV abbey brown ale brewed by monks in Belgium. Not only is it only $6 a pop, but you also won't find this beer anywhere else."
Best Hidden Gem: Frittata
"Newsflash: Main Street does not end at 12 Mile. Head just a bit further north and there is Clawson and its many hidden gem restaurants, bars and shops. Frittata serves one of the best breakfasts and brunches in metro Detroit, specializing in their namesake dish, frittatas (baked omelettes). Plus their seasonal patio is adorbs."
Best Place To Find Home Decor: Leon & Lulu
"If you've never been to this enormous Clawson emporium for all things wonderful and weird; you're going to want to plan a trip here as soon as possible. And when we say "trip," we mean it. Stationed in an old skating ink, this place is enormous and every last inch in stocked with one-of-a-kind or hard-to-find objects. Simply put, you're going to need at least a few hours to check out everything from their cache of couches to their novelty kitchenware. Amid the candles, wall art, books and even cute cleaning supplies, you never know what you'll find."
