Some forums can only be seen by registered members. Detroit's Asian Village closes after year Freep. I heard many stories about it from friends though, mainly that it is not a "Village" and it was only one or two restaurants, not the row of shop's and restaurants that you think of. I always thought of it as a new "Greektown" area, not even close. I heard that the food was also very pricey for what you recieved.
Your fortune cookie today promises a spicy hot plate of nostalgia for the Asian Village of yore. Some boosters even thought it could be the start to a new Chinatown district. The three restaurants included a gourmet tea and coffee shop, an elegant Asian-fusion restaurant and a marketplace featuring inspired takes on street food. The owners had splurged on those chichi consultants, pricey digs and an insane state-of-the-art kitchen for Fusia.
