Where to Find Igloo Dining In + Around Detroit

*updated 1/6/23

If you’re looking for something to do this week, head for a restaurant with outdoor dining. Yes, it’s winter in Michigan, and that phrase is mind-boggling to say the least. But there are so many benefits to getting out of the house and heading for one of these great establishments:

  1. You’re supporting a local business.
  2. It’s great for your mental health.
  3. Fresh air is always a good idea.
  4. You don’t have to cook!

So bundle up, grab a blanket, and enjoy a meal with your family or a best gal pal at some of our favorite local places this winter.
