9. Greektown

Greektown — so called because it was home to Greek immigrants throughout much of the 20th century — is one of Detroit's livelier neighborhoods. It's got a bundle of casinos, bars and restaurants, which get especially crowded right after Red Wings and Lions games. The neighborhood's most popular attraction is the Greektown Casino, but before you gamble away your meal money, drop into Mosaic Restaurant, an upscale spot with a global menu; it's not far from the casino, in the heart of downtown.
