Detroit's Grocery Vacuum

As much as devoted Detroit boosters plea to the contrary (see attached article from "Model D", my favorite Detroit booster site), Detroit lacks even a single grocery store that would satisfy anybody with even a modicum of food sophistication. Much hoopla attended the openings of clean new grocery stores recently, Mexicantown's "Honey Bee", and Mike's Fresh Market near Palmer Woods. These places are new and clean, but they are very inferior grocery stores... unless you want a big bag of Doritos and a liter of Coke. Food sophisticates in Detroit cry out.
