Here in the city of Detroit, two local media outlets are teaming up to create a community-focused restaurant guide. It’s about giving you a voice — as opposed to food critics or Yelp reviews — to shine a light on some of the restaurants that are a part of your life but aren’t getting the shine they deserve.
To have a conversation about this and what the Anti-gentrifiers’ guide to dining in Detroit really is, CultureShift speaks with two of the people behind this project, including Serena Maria Daniels, editor and founder of Tostada Magazineand Orlando Bailey, Engagement Director for BridgeDetroit.
“We see this as an opportunity to amplify the hyperlocal community, to amplify the expansion and preservation of culture and culture… so it’s exciting. I’m into it, I’m really interested to see what people come up with. – Orlando Bailey, BridgeDetroit
