Born in the heart of Detroit's auto industry, and bred on the blue-collar work ethic that made it great.

Avenue American Bistro has worked tirelessly over the past decade to bring you elevated service and from-scratch cooking of fine dining caliber, presented in the form of honest midwestern hospitality.


Our small team of creative individuals allows us to present new flavor profiles and dining experiences that guests have not yet come to expect from casual dining. With a cumulative total of 60 plus years of culinary knowledge and fresh eyes of three owner-operators looking to effect change in the restaurant industry. Customers come for the food and come back for the experience. The Avenue is an EVER evolving, EVER improving dining experience.

What sets our food apart is that even the most overlooked and simple preparations are executed with the attention to detail of time and efforts required to make them exceptional. Our onion soup starts with a house-roasted bone stock and 10 hour truly caramelized onions before being topped with daily baked baguette and swiss gruyere in order to land in front of you with the combination of 3 days effort.

Our kitchen is founded on time-honored techniques and a belief that classical cooking leaves no room for shortcuts. Utilizing the crafts of true hardwood smoking creating deep flavor bases through housemade stocks and layering them with “new world” flavor profiles.

We bring you dishes like our 14-hour smoked brisket Korean taco, Shawarma Taco with freshly battered cauliflower, our hand-crafted White BBQ Bacon Burger, and hickory kissed Firecracker Shrimp with sweet chili glaze.
