Asian Village

Asian Village is set to open its doors for the public opening of the Auto Show, according the Free Press. There is no news on the website about its official date as yet. I have grown up loving Chinese- and Japanese-American cuisine and cannot wait for Detroit to have an Asian district of its own. If you are looking for jobs in the restaurant industry there are a number of postings on the site. While the district only includes fare from East Asia, I do hope South Asia is soon to follow. On the Free Press site there is some discussion as to whether or not ethnic districts are needed within the city or not. My feeling is that any diversity is a positive addition and a great opportunity for learning and experience.

    FYI: Detroit had a chinatown. It’s now called the Lodge.


    Similarly, Blackbottom is now called I-75.

    Autoculture, Eminent Domain abuse, and slumclearing have done away with these pieces of Detroit’s past.
