I now have a few more minutes and can give you some more information about shopping and dining in detroit. I suggest you try checking out Somerset mall in Troy. They have a Neiman Marcus, Sak's, and Marshall Field,s and almost any other store you want. At this mall, you can buy Zegna, Prada, Gucci, Armani, Burberry, Purple Label, Louis Vuitton, and any other brand you can think of. It is the best shopping by far that we have to offer. There is also a Nordstrom at the mall and a Nordstrom rack right down the street. Royal Oak a few minutes away also offers some good shopping as well if you are into the small store shopping style. Royal oak is not really my style because it's a little to European for me, but you might like it. The mall by itself is one day of shopping if you want it to be. Now for dining, we have lots of great places to try. If your into Mexican, check out Mexican town by the Ambasssador bridge to see what we are really like. If you want something more upscale, try any Andiamo's Italian restaurant. They have 7 or 8 locations int he area. Lark's in Bloomfield I believe is a pretty upscale place for a nice meal. Jacket and tie are required there. Dearborn is known for Middleeastern food if you enjoy that. Dearborn has the largest population of people from the Middle East in the country and is a fun city to experience new cultures in. The Hyatt across the street from U of M Dearborn ha sone of the best restaurants in the state there. President Bush has satyed at this hotel several times. You can also look at www.citysearch.com
