Restaurants

Like many big cities across the nation, Detroit has a diverse population. Visitors can see that simply by walking down the street and observing the different types of shops and restaurants in the Jeffries neighborhood.

The Bucharest Grill serves up classic Mediterranean dishes in a dining room that often gets crowded during lunch hours as nearby workers and students swing by for a quick bite to eat.

Refuel to take on the afternoon with a generous chicken shawarma filled with vegetables and wrapped in a warm pita baked in-house. Locals also enjoy the variety of specialty hot dogs on the menu. For a true taste of Detroit, order the Hamtramck, which comes with grilled fresh kielbasa, braised red cabbage, bacon, and spicy mustard all served on a sesame seed bun.

Residents also fill the tables at Slows Bar-B-Q, which specializes in slow-smoked barbecue with a New Orleans influence. The smoked chicken and andouille gumbo provides a great starter. From there, diners can choose from all sorts of entrees that incorporate tasty barbecued meat. The satisfying pulled pork enchilada and chicken wings both come with a side of waffle fries smothered in cheese. Diners can also design their own plate by choosing any number of meat choices and sides. Bring an appetite, and sample as much as possible.

For an upscale dinner with drinks, visit the 24 Grille located off of Michigan Avenue. Not only has it been voted as the best burger in Detroit, it also offers a nightly champagne bar. Just a few blocks east, residents can catch a show and enjoy a few beers at the Hard Rock Detroit. Music lovers can also listen to the Detroit Symphony and visit the Detroit Opera House, Fox Theater, and local casinos for nationally touring shows and local performers. Between Lions football and Tigers baseball, sports fans can watch games year round.

History

Originally known as "Black Bottom" after the marshy bottom of the River Savoyard, the Jeffries neighborhood quickly became home to workers for the busy automotive industry. After World War II, it became a thriving center for arts, culture, and business, with famous performers such as Duke Ellington and Ella Fitzgerald performing in the local music halls.

The historic New Bethel Baptist Church opened on Hastings Street in 1932 and remains in the neighborhood to this day, although the location has changed to Linwood Street. A cultural hub, the Jeffries neighborhood contains the Detroit institute of Art and the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History.

Transportation

Drivers living in the Jeffries neighborhood have no problem accessing major routes and commuting to areas both inside and outside of the city. I-94 borders the northern edge and takes drivers right into a major interchange with I-75, which runs north and south. Parking in the neighborhood may require a lap to find a good spot, but most on-street parking is free. Residents who head into the heart of downtown can easily park in one of the many available parking decks.

Eliminate the need for parking altogether by taking advantage of the extensive bus system that serves the neighborhood and the city. Base fare costs $1.25 per ride, but frequent passengers can save by purchasing a pass. Hailing a cab or using Uber can also be a quick way to grab a ride.

The Jeffries neighborhood features plenty of sidewalks for pedestrians. While a lot of the major streets do have dedicated bike lanes, serious bicyclists looking to commute to work have to plan out their route carefully.

Cost

The cost of living in Jeffries runs below national averages. A one-bedroom apartment in Jeffries rents for $650 a month and gas prices trend about 15 percent under national prices. Bus fare costs just $1.25, but is less for students, seniors, and frequent travelers. Head to one of the many local bars, and enjoy a bottle of domestic beer for $3.

Parks

Residents enjoy easy access to many small neighborhood parks throughout Jeffries. Nagel Park offers wide open spaces, baseball fields, and a playground for families. A few miles east, visitors can take their dogs to the Midtown Dog Park or get their hands dirty at the North Cass Community Garden.

For a real outdoor treat, head over to the Bell Isle Recreation Area located right in the middle of the Detroit River. Visitors can jog or bike the miles of paths lining the shore, go boating, catch fish, or simply toss a Frisbee in the large areas of open fields. A zoo and aquarium also sit on site, offering a full day of fun. The island also hosts the best fireworks show in town. Use all the parks free of charge.

Shopping

Jeffries offers a variety of specialty shops that cater to niche markets, but larger shopping districts are just a short distance away. The Martin Universal Design store sells a wide range of art products. From kids' easels to drafting tables for engineers, this store provide a one-stop shop for all that's related to drawing, painting, and art. Stock up on watercolors, portfolios, and sketch pads at affordable prices.

Dabl's African Bead Gallery provides another must-visit for established and aspiring artists looking for supplies and inspiration. The building houses the MBAD museum, which features centuries-old artifacts from all over Africa including sculptures, textiles, and bead work. Visitors can tour the museum, learn about art and history, and make purchases at the bead store before heading home to make their own creations.

Residents have access to many local markets where they can pick up groceries. The Trumbull and Selden Market, Goodwell's Natural Food Market, and Blue Diamond Foods represent just a few. A Whole Foods also services the area, and residents can visit the famous Eastern Market for fresh produce and exotic ingredients throughout the year.
