8 Unexpectedly Great Places to Warm Up With a Bowl of Soup

8 Unexpectedly Great Places to Warm Up With a Bowl of Soup

All winter long, we basically consider soup one of the major food groups. It’s not a dieting-by-eating-only-cabbage-soup-and-broth situation. We turn to soup in more of an it’s-freezing-out-and-I-need-something-hot-to-warm-by-bones kind of way. It’s hearty and delicious, especially in the winter. There are tons of cool places in Detroit that serve soup, many of them you probably know already. We […]

Guadalajara is the land-locked capital city of Jalisco, which rests on Mexico’s western coast. It’s a charming, historic town; the home of mariachi.

Salt and Acid

Salt and Acid

  There are three reasons we’re excited about Salt and Acid, a brand new Detroit popup. It’s held in a chic loft in Detroit’s North End district.

Detroit Grilled Cheese

Detroit Grilled Cheese

As a kid, we could spend hours outside in cold weather making snowmen, snow angels, snow forts and snowball fights. When we finally trudged back inside, Mom greeted us with a hot bowl of tomato soup and a toasty grilled cheese sandwich. There may be no dish more comforting on a cold winter day. Chickpea […]
