The Rattlesnake Club Restaurant Review

: Jimmy Schmidt, arguably Detroit's best-known chef, consults on the upbeat American menu at The Rattlesnake Club. The contemporary, art-filled setting and a view of the river through big windows further ensure the restaurant's place as one of Detroit's premier dining destinations. Unlike some restaurants that do not showcase the best dishes at lunch, signature preparations are available here throughout the day. Typifying the style is Maine sea scallops with a ragoût of grilled chanterelles and roasted corn ravioli. Schmidt also offers grilled steaks and chops. Salads include everything from a simple Caesar to one with watermelon, watercress and ginger vinaigrette. Baskets of house-made bread, rolls and muffins usually include sourdough, focaccia and rosemary or olive flavorings. Schmidt's philosophy is to use seasonal ingredients, so the menu changes frequently. Desserts include the white chocolate ravioli with hazelnut crème anglaise. There also are confections starring fresh seasonal fruits as well as house-made ice creams and sorbets.
