Dime Store

Today on the Bite Tonight: Dime Store

A hot, new lunch spot opened in the Chrysler House on Griswold in Downtown Detroit about 6 weeks ago. Dime Store, serving up decadent and mouth watering food, is what I call “casual gourmet.” They offer breakfast and lunch menus consisting of some serious unique and fresh dishes. From the pork belly eggs Benedict to the cauliflower gruyere soup and duck Reuben sandwich, they have something that is sure to spark up anyone’s taste buds. See how they ranked.

Butternut Squash soup: Sweet, but not overwhelming. Fresh, silky, and smooth.

Korean BBQ Sandwich: Shaved steak, pickled onion, cilantro, carrot, cucumber, and bulgogi sauce (Korean barbeque) on a ciabatta roll. My only complaint is that there wasn’t enough of the steak! The sauce was sweet and paired well with the veggies. The ciabatta was soft and fresh and the steak was tender and juicy, but I could’ve used a little more in my ciabatta.

If you haven’t been to Dime Store yet, stop in now! It is a little pricey (my sandwich and soup totaled $15), but I didn’t feel bad about spending so much because the flavors were spot on. You can really taste the made from scratch love that goes into each item. They also serve booze and I liked that one of the owners, Jeff Alexander, was the one running my food to the carryout counter. If you’re looking for a change from Jimmy John’s or the food truck scene, start eating at Dime Store and support the locals.
