As is tradition with Eater, we closed 2020 by interviewing local food writers and our own staff on various restaurant-related topics and posting their responses over the course of the week. Next up: Which restaurant or restaurant (pop-up etc) are you most looking forward to in 2021?

Serena Maria Daniels, Founder and Editor of Tostada Magazine:

I really hope that the Holy Mole competition resumes next year. I know planning events in 2020 with endless zoom sessions was insane, but I was encouraged to attend some excellent virtual events that included high production value. I’ve seen this happen at Holy Mole if the face-to-face meeting didn’t start next fall. There needs to be a way to shed light on the many home cooks who attend the event each year.

Mark Kurlyandchik, Restaurant Reviewer, Detroit Free Press:

I never got a chance to make it to the canal coriander kitchen patio service when they were operating this summer and that’s one of my biggest regrets for 2020. I hope to correct this mistake in 2021 when they are fully open .

Melody Baetens, Restaurant Reviewer, The Detroit News:

I look forward to seeing Coriander Detroit’s permanent establishment. Every time I tried to go this summer it was closed because of the weather or some other problem. Also Baobab Fare!

Zahir Janmohamed, Co-Founder, Racist Sandwich:

The Qahwah House opens a second location in West Dearborn. It’s stunning inside and I can’t wait to hang out there and drink Adani Chai.

Brenna Houck, Editor, Eater Detroit:

Looking forward to Coriander Kitchen and Farm, which hopefully will return in 2021, and Baobab Fare, which feels like it has always annoyed Detroiters. There are also a lot of places I want to see that opened this year that I never made it to due to the pandemic.

Mickey Lyons, Freelance Writer, Eater:

As a lover of German beer and the Ostmarkt, I look forward to visiting Lagerhaus No. 5. Apparently they took the time and care in renovating the building and I think it’s a great addition to the market. Eastern Market could become the brewery district again it was 150 years ago!
