Restaurant Review: Iridescence
is one of those restaurants that you put on your bucket list to visit. It’s located on the 16th
floor of the MotorCity Hotel and Casino in Downtown Detroit. Their menu is out of this world, and the food is to die for (especially the desserts, but we’ll talk about those next week). Iridescence offers a breathtaking view of the city, and is the only AAA 4 Diamond Award-winning restaurant in Detroit. Without further ado, let’s talk about the food.
I began the evening with a light and refreshing cucumber ginger martini (non-alcoholic), which I highly recommend!
Followed by the Stuffed Squash Blossom, which is made with house-made ricotta, roasted mushrooms (AMAZING) and soubise. The presentation was gorgeous and the blossoms were in better.
I then transitioned to the “Wedge” Salad, which comes with bacon, hazelnuts, pickled red onions, radishes and Roquefort dressing (I substituted the dressing for cucumber ranch).
Moving right along to the main course of a 6-ounce barrel cut filet with whipped potatoes (oh my word, so good!) and wild forged mushrooms (these were the best mushrooms I have ever had).
Hands down one of the best meals and restaurant experiences I have ever had. This restaurant makes the perfect date night (just wait until you find out about the dessert!), night out with girlfriends and more!
