I must admit, I was drawn to this restaurant because of the name. We have many things in Detroit name after General Lafayette. Probably not the best criteria for choosing a restaurant. The building an interior both had a French flavor. Even though it was...More

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in
