Thrillist lists what it calls the 17 most important eateries in Metro Detroit. Nicole Rupersburg writes:

Moreso than perhaps any other major metropolitan area, Detroit's restaurants are judged not just by subjective standards of quality, but also by their overall significance to the city.

This isn't about the best restaurants or the oldest restaurants or the quirkiest or the trendiest or the most beloved; this is about the restaurants that make an impact beyond their food, and have become a part of the fabric of what it means to eat and live in Detroit.

El Barzon Restaurante is at 3710 Junction in Southwest Detroit.
