Next up in the Detroit Free Press’ Metro Detroit Chevy Dealers Top 10 dining series is Cuisine, New Center’s French-inspired eatery.

Cuisine is the 2024 Detroit Free Press/Metro Detroit Chevy Dealers Restaurant of the Year Classic. Its owner and executive chef Paul Grosz also earned the Sylvia Rector Lifetime Achievement Award for Hospitality.

On July 30, at our ninth Top 10 Takeover, Grosz, with his long-standing passion for French cooking, presents a four-course meal.

Cuisine opened in Detroit’s New Center neighborhood, across the street from the Fisher Building, in 2001. The following year, Cuisine was named the 2002 Restaurant of the Year and is the longest-standing restaurant that remains open in the program’s 24-year history.

“At Cuisine, Grosz has created a culture of fine dining rooted in French cooking,” wrote Lyndsay C. Green, Free Press dining critic. “Since it opened in 2001, the restaurant has become a special-occasion destination for locals from across the region. Located across the street from the Albert Kahn-designed Fisher Building, home of the Fisher Theatre and Broadway in Detroit, it’s a sophisticated place for showgoers to fill their bellies before a long, lively musical, or to compare interpretations of a heady play.”

Seatings for the Cuisine Top 10 Takeover are at 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. at 670 Lothrop St. in Detroit. Tickets are $88 per person and include tax, gratuity and a Forgotten Harvest donation.
