American Coney Island
The American Coney Island Hot Dog has been a favorite with Detroiters and visitors for nearly a century. The reasons for the great popularity of the American Coney Island is the high quality, specially-seasoned, natural skin casing hot dog from Dearborn Sausage and our own Keros family secret recipe Coney Island Chili Sauce developed decades ago. Add to that a topping of fine mustard and sweet chopped onions that is the final touch to the distinctive overall taste and flavor of the American Coney Island Hot Dog. Served in a warm steamed bun, it's no wonder the American Coney Island Hot Dog has been such a tantalizing treat that's still hard to beat after all these years! 114 W. Lafayette Blvd, Detroit MI 48226

Nothing brings us more joy than a great meal with friends. Sharing that experience is at the heart of why we opened Selden Standard. And central to that experience is Chef Andy Hollyday’s food – flavors born in local farms, captured at the peak of the season, prepared in our wood-fired oven, and served small plates-style in perfectly shareable portions. Complementing the menu is a bar we take every bit as seriously as our kitchen: wines thoughtfully chosen from small producers, local and global brews that work well with our food, and craft cocktails to suit the seasons.
