Maru is one of Detroit’s best sushi options, especially if you’re looking for somewhere that feels a little upscale, but you could still wear jeans to. This downtown spot is known for its wide variety of specialty rolls, but if you’re not super into raw fish, they have things like hibachi platters and udon, too. If you need a snack post-bar hopping, Maru also serves select small plates and rolls until midnight on the weekends.
