THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Caucus Club Restaurant Review

: Opened in 1952, this downtown spot is the place where an untried Barbra Streisand got her break as a singer. Fast-forward to the more modern day: its sautéed lake perch and oysters in Champagne sauce were featured on Bobby Flay's "Food Nation." Expect a dark and clubby vibe with copper and brass duck presses, stained glass panels and the feel of a private enclave. The restaurant still serves its classic menu of London broil, baby-back ribs, perch, Dover sole and steak tartare, furthered by very good cocktails and wines from a fine cellar. Be sure to try one or both of its classic drinks, perhaps the Bullshot --- a mix of beef broth, vodka and spices; it has been on the menu since the restaurant first opened. And, during the holiday season, you'll want the Tom and Jerry, an old-time combination of brandy and rums, topped with meringue. Though the place has been somewhat eclipsed by glossier restaurants, it remains a haven for those who like the traditional approach, good service and sense of Detroit history.
