Huron Room

I’ll start with hushpuppies because HUSHPUPPIES! When I was a kid we went to Long John Silvers – which is frankly odd because my mom doesn’t eat seafood – and I loved them. I have never seen them anywhere else and haven’t had them in probably two decades. Consequently, when I saw hushpuppies on the … More Huron Room

Bobcat Bonnie’s

We are massively behind on the Detroit food scene. There are simply too many restaurants and not enough time or money – although we’d probably find the time if money wasn’t a factor… To celebrate our birthdays and eat food that tastes better and costs less than the Palace of Auburn Hills, we checked out … More Bobcat Bonnie’s

Batch Brewing Company

Batch Brewery is a long anticipated addition to the Detroit beer scene. The nanobrewery is the first of its kind in the city and a winner of the 2013 Hatch Detroit business incubator contest. The location couldn’t be better, a short walk from Mudgie’s, it’s tucked into the Corktown neighborhood bar and perfect gathering space … More Batch Brewing Company

The Mercury Bar

The day I decided to start blogging with a purpose we met Kristin and Paul for dinner at the Mercury Bar. I didn’t really have a plan and the post reads like a Yelp review (albeit I don’t hate the food picture). Since I didn’t have great photography and my blogging format changed, I opted … More The Mercury Bar

Interestingly, my most popular post of all time is the International Literary Project … More The Top 10

Gold Cash Gold

Last year Danny and I previewed Gold Cash Gold on the Corktown walking tour and were even able to talk with chef Josh Stockton in his apartment.  I’ve been anxious to check it out ever since and this weekend we finally got our chance. We hit the town with Gina and Garrett Saturday night and … More Gold Cash Gold

Ottava Via

Ottava Via is one of the many restaurants on Michigan Avenue that makes Corktown a popular destination.  It opened in 2013 but since it looks so fancy on the outside I assumed it was a high end restaurant and held off my visit until Gina insisted we check it out.  I was pleasantly surprised to … More Ottava Via

Green Dot

Green Dot Stables can be found in the south side of Corktown.  When it opened a couple years ago it was a desolate area, now it’s next to new construction homes and Johnny Noodle King is across the street.*  The new venture intrigued me in 2012 and even though I hardly went out to lunch, … More Green Dot
