    Pink neon letters glow above the dance floor. The room vibrates with bass as an energetic young band rocks a diverse crowd who pack the dance floor, swaying and bobbing with the music. But instead of the smell of sweaty bodies or remnant illicit substances, this dance floor is surrounded by the wonderful aroma of pizza. We have found our happy plac [...]

    Unless you have hours to spend in the kitchen, preparing a comforting soul food dinner probably isn’t an option on a weekday. As much as we’d like to extend the weekend, we can’t spend our Mondays fussing over pastry crust for a sweet potato pie or watching collards simmer over the stove, waiting for the greens and bacon to gently melt into o [...]

    The menu at Old Redford Kitchen & Cafe is as diverse as Detroit itself. Usually, restaurants that try to cram too many different options onto their bill of fare aren’t able to make everything on the menu well. Sushi spots that offer a solitary hamburger to please picky eaters, or greasy spoon diners that feel the need to put spaghetti and [...]

    We didn’t even realize there was such a thing as “Bosnian cuisine” before visiting Palma. Ignorantly, we had Lumped Bosnia and Herzegovina (B&H) in with all the other Balkan nations we never seem to be able to find on a map. But there is a distinctive cuisine associated with this mountainous region on the Adriatic Sea, and it is worth tas [...]

    Fusion cuisine is a funny thing. It’s inherently inauthentic, if you think about it: the merging of two cultures to create something completely new. Who decides the rules of this new genre? Are there any rules at all? We have nothing but love for the folks who put their own weird twists on classic dishes. Without those crazy recipe rebels, we [...]

    “Secret Recipe” is a term that gets thrown around a little too easily. It reminds us of an ad for a can of beans, or the hasty exchange of fast food through a car window, or your Aunt Clara’s pretzel jello that no one really wants the recipe for anyway. But in the case of Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken, we’re pretty sure the reason t [...]

    To categorize Bella’s as merely a coffee house would be like calling Michael Phelps a guy who eats a lot of pancakes. Sure, it’s true; but it kinda misses the whole point - the thing they’re really, really good at. Inside the cheery, two-story orange building is a lunch-breakers paradise. Tucked into a residential neighborhood near the be [...]

    The Pasta Bowl Bistro combines two of our favorite comfort foods. This unassuming little eatery on the south side of McNichols, just a few blocks east of the Southfield Fwy, has created a menu that marries carby, Italian pasta to stick-to-your ribs southern soul food. Our first mashup is Theresa Ann’s lasagna, which is where a classic sout [...]

    There is a little red hut perched on the northwest corner of Livernois and Santa Maria - a nondescript side street one block north of McNichols. For those who’ve never set foot inside, it would be easy to pass by without much thought to what goes on here. But for those who have tasted the its secret recipes, BabyBacks Open Pit restaurant is a bri [...]
