After our tour of the Detroit Opera House, we went to Small Plates, right across the street, for lunch. My food was terrific, spring rolls, and homemade french fries with homemade ketchup. An odd combination, but I shared a bit of grilled eggplant on a baguette, and boursin cheese and tomatoes on a baguette.

On the grand staircase. The set for Don Giovanni was being installed while we were there, so only half of our group had a chance to go on stage. But we saw all of it, up close. I recommend this tour. It cost $10 per person, and was well worth it.
