Anchors aweigh

And speaking of baseball, Detroit’s iconic Anchor Bar, which had been closed since January, re-opened in early April just in time for the Tiger’s opening day. The watering hole, a favorite of Detroit sports fans, was purchased in 2018 by developer Zaid Elia, founder and CEO of the Iconic Collection. “The Anchor Bar has been a fixture of downtown Detroit’s dining scene for more than six decades, and we look forward to reopening and welcoming our guests again,” said Stephanie Prechel, general manager for The Iconic Collection. “The Anchor Bar is the perfect spot for people to gather and experience engaging, inspiring and real connections, great food and beverage options and personal service.” The menu has been updated to include new items such as the fried chicken sandwich topped with fresh lettuce and tomato, herb aioli and the baked mac and cheese with cavatappi pasta, white cheddar and fontina cheeses, topped with parmesan bread crumbs. Other classic pub fare favorites remain on the menu including the iconic cheesesteak; Doc’s crispy battered cod fish and chips; boom bang shrimp tacos with mango pico de gallo; and garbage can nachos with chili. 450 Fort St W, Ste 100, Detroit
