Alpino Detroit Offers a New Dining Option in Corktown

Whether you're looking for a dining option for a group or a new date night spot, check out Alpino Detroit. Located at the corner of Bagley & Trumbull in Corktown, Alpino Detroit is one of Detroit's newest restaurants, just opening its doors last month. The menu is inspired by the Alps, with ingredients sourced from hills, fields, rivers, and streams. Alpino prides itself on having a unique menu with ingredients sourced in "the most earth-friendly and humane ways". 

The menu at Alpino Detroit has options for both meat eaters and vegetarians, with vegan options available by making some slight changes. The first thing that caught our eye on the menu was the multiple cheese courses available as appetizers. A mountain cheese platter, a charcuterie board, and raclette all sounded like delicious options, as well as the cheese fondue which is just offered on Sunday. We opted to start with Mountain Cheeses, which were served with a house-made pecan toffee, apricots, and fresh bread. For our main courses, we went with Orecchiette (a vegetarian option) and Wienerschnitzel, which appeared to be the most popular item on the menu that evening. The menu also includes other pasta options, fish, steak, and sausage. Take a look at the current menu here. We also did our best to save room for dessert, and chose to split Panna Cotta and Chocolate Fondue, part of the reason why we opted to not try the Cheese Fondue on this visit. We left dinner absolutely stuffed, with food left on our plates despite our best efforts to finish every last bite. 

In addition to a refreshingly different food menu, Alpino Detroit also offers craft cocktails, a variety of beers, and a long list of wines. Whether you're going for a full meal or just drinks and snacks, we highly suggest giving Alpino a try. The restaurant also just opened their patio for the season and plans to have live entertainment.
