Hungarian Club – Delray

The area of Delray (along Jefferson Avenue – south of Clark Street) was once a lively community for Polish and Hungarian immigrants. They worked in the auto and steel factories that lined the nearby Detroit River and relaxed in clubs like these [see photo]. Those factories are mostly closed and the traces of this community have wandered – some not too far. In the nearby town of Wyandotte (further south) is a large population of the diaspora of Hungarians from Delray. Hungarian Kitchen (in Wyandotte for year but recently closed) used to be located in Delray. Rose Butka, its owner, offered a daily changing menu of simple, but delicious and authentic food of her homeland and old Delray. Chicken paprikas, little dumplings, and all of the yummy pastries that you can
