Selden Standard


3921 2nd Ave, Detroit
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

While the combination of New American food, good cocktails, and exposed wood is basically the modern day neighborhood restaurant starter kit, Selden Standard was one of the first to do it in Detroit and really helped kickstart the city’s food scene when it opened a few years ago. While you can’t go wrong with any of the food here, start with the “vegetables & such” portion of the menu, which includes things that are better than anything under a “vegetables & such” header should be. From there, check out the meat and fish section, which includes things like charred octopus and lamb ragu.
