Restaurant entrance at Giulio & Sons.

Giulio and Sons Restaurant

If you’ve been following along, you’ll see that I had the opportunity to stay at the adoba hotel in Dearborn. What’s a great hotel stay without delicious food? Well, even before I ate at Giulio and Sons,

I had recommendations to give it a try. We had 3 meals during our #EcoTravelwithadoba event, 2 breakfasts and dinner, and it was tasty!

About Giulio and Sons:

Long a favorite of Dearborn residents and guests, this landmark among Michigan restaurants is perfect any time of the day.

Open for breakfast and lunch daily, it’s in the evening when the restaurant truly comes alive, as their talented chefs create perfectly prepared steaks, seafood, and Northern Italian specialties designed to delight your palate.

Celebrate a special occasion, or entertain an important client, with dinner in one of our private alcoves and a bottle of your favorite wine from their extensive collection.

Giulio & Sons is conveniently located on the second floor of the adoba hotel and offers satisfying choices for everyone.

Options, You’ll Love It.

Giulio and Sons offers a wide variety of breakfast items from cold cereals, toast, bagels, muffins and sweet breads to fresh fruits, yogurts and more! There’s cottage cheese and cold cuts for the lighter appetite. I chose diced potatoes, bacon, eggs, a slice of french toast and some watermelon. 

The breakfast options were vast in comparison to other hotel breakfast options. You also have the option of orange juice (that are served in glasses from repurposed wine bottles), coffee and tea. I enjoyed a nice cup of coffee and the next morning some peppermint tea.

Unique Dining Experience.

The restaurant changes gears during the evening, it becomes more of a fine dining experience with a fusion of a more affordable buffet. It’s the first time I’ve ever experienced both at the same time and it was nice to have the elegance of a fine dining experience and the choices of a buffet too. 

What I loved was that the waiter gave us menus on a tablet, it’s so trendy and I absolutely adored this way of choosing my meal. The entrees start at $22 to $42 and are well-rounded. From pasta dishes, fish, chicken and steak–there’s something for every palate.

Chicken Parm, Anyone?

I decided on having some fresh salad before digging into my entree, Chicken Parmesan. The chicken breast is lightly breaded and lightly spiced. The dish says it is topped with braised endives and carmelized shallots but, since they use fresh ingredients, they must have run out! 

The pasta was nice and soft and you can tell that it is hand made. The sauce was rich and flavorful and the fresh parmesan cheese gave it that extra pop! It was a nice dish.

Save Room for Dessert.
Well, because, there’s plenty!

One of the best things about the buffet option is the ability to try out a little bit of everything. That includes dessert! There was so much to choose from and if I could I would have tried it all. I did have a bit of my favorites and the highly recommended bread pudding. I also tried the lemon square and a cannoli, though I couldn’t finish it all, I sure enjoyed tasting them all.
