"The Detroit food scene has exploded, creating so many opportunities for talented chefs and even more opportunity for people to enjoy the emerging food culture downtown,” said Scott Rutterbush, creator of Dine Drink Detroit. “We’ve found people really embrace this event and, as a result, we’ve added an extra week and nearly doubled the number of participating restaurants offer even more options."

Dine Drink Detroit will kick off with a launch party at West Riverfront Park on the Detroit Riverfront, located at 1801 W. Jefferson, on October 3rd from 5pm – 11pm.

Proceeds from this year’s Dine Drink Detroit will be donated to the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy, an organization that offers improved access to the riverfront, spearheads economic development, and provides valuable green space to residents and visitors. Diners can also make a $1 donation, directly benefitting the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy, at each participating restaurant.
