Sandwich Showdown: Potbelly vs. Which Wich

+-*Which Wich opened this week in the Penobcsot building downtown. When we first tried their sandwiches we couldn’t help but notice that they’re similar to another shop right down the street. Potbelly’s been serving toasted sammies in One Kennedy Square since November 2013. We normally shy away from writing about chain restaurants, but we have […]

Eight Reasons to Love Southwest Detroit

Eight Reasons to Love Southwest Detroit

+-*We love Southwest Detroit. We’re not talking about Mexicantown or Corktown (though we like them, too, of course). We’re talking about the old school Southwest: the authentic taquerias, the hidden gems. You have to be a little adventurous to explore the hole-in-the-wall spots tucked off the beaten path. But it is so worth it. It’s […]

NOODL Popup: Veneto

NOODL Popup: Veneto

+-*Even if you don’t know Steven Reaume yet, you probably know his work. He’s one of the masterminds behind Grand Trunk Pub, Checker Bar, POP, the Whisky Parlor, and more. Steven’s usually more of a behind-the-scenes guy, making sure things run smoothly and that you’re having a great time. But with NOODL, he takes center […]

+-*What’s so great about brunch? What is it about this late-morning portmanteau that makes us giddy whenever it’s mentioned? Is it the runny eggs? The sleeping in until noon?

We all knew it wasn’t a healthy choice, but he argued that it was basically the perfect combo, the only dish he really liked. The pile of tender breast meat enveloped by a crispy golden crust – accompanied by fried potatoes […]

Brunch Spots

Brunch Spots

+-*Brunch: a combination of breakfast and lunch. Or in our world, a combination of staying out too late and being too lazy to cook. It’s not just laziness that makes us love brunch. This fun, social meal is one of the best parts of the weekend. Restaurants serve breakfast – a meal we rarely make […]

Drifter Coffee

Drifter Coffee

+-*When we were kids, we always kept an eye (and an ear) out for the ice cream truck. It was our favorite summer treat. These days, the truck we keep an eye out for looks a little different. If you see a vintage Scotty Serro parked nearby, stop what you’re doing and make your way […]
