Detroit is no slouch when it comes to first-rate restaurants these days. That includes Detroit's Selden Standard.

USA Today lists the Midtown Detroit establishment at 3931 Second Ave. as one of 47 restaurants of the Year for 2024.

Here's what the publication wrote. It was written by Lyndsay C. Green of the Detroit Free Press, which, along with USA Today,  is part of Gannett network of publications. 

When it opened in 2014, Selden Standard brought a fresh culinary perspective to midtown Detroit, a neighborhood better known for its fast-casual spots and takeout joints than upscale dining establishments. In the decade that followed, the New American restaurant has become a pillar in midtown, which is now a hotbed for some of the city’s most popular restaurants, and a beacon for Detroit’s culinary scene at large.

The Selden Standard team has racked up six James Beard nominations and in 2015, the restaurant was named the Detroit Free Press/Metro Detroit Chevy Dealers Restaurant of the Year.
