From someone who has eaten at deli's in NYC, Chicago & DC, Intermission has found the niche. This local favorite uses bread made locally and delivered fresh daily and is hands down the best deli bread I've tasted. If you are in the area, take the time to stop by and order by the number. During the lunch hour patrons are usually lined out the door. Operating hours are limited to catering around normal business hours. Check out the menu just inside the door and decide then what you want. When it's your turn, they will be ready to take your order and ordering by the number is the quickest way. Enjoy and I promise, you will tell your friends.

Though I disagree that this place has a bad reputation, I will say that it is generally mixed. Some either love it or hate it. My experiences here with the food have been good. The atmosphere is a little stuffy as they try and pull off a semi-elegant dinning experience. In a crunch this place will work however there are plenty of other options in the area. A side note, last time I went inside the smell was so bad that we walked right back out.

If you want great pizza in Detroit and don't have time to get to Chicago, this is the place. Ambience not for romantics, groups are perfect. Found the pizza to be great but slightly over priced but not unacceptable. Parking is a little difficult but walking in Greektown is not a bad thing.

What a place to eat for just two, romantic style, or a group. I've done both and have had a great time. In fact the two other couple's my wife and I took still talk about it four months later. Plan to spend $90-$120 per couple, w/ drinks, + tip. Also plan on having an overall experience that will bring you back. Recommend reservations for groups. Everytime, we were seated promply w/i 10-15 min. despite number of guests.
