    Life is too short to drink bad coffee. These days, when it seems like there’s a flashy new spot popping up every other day, it can be easy to forget about old standbys that have always been there for us. That have always been good. One sip from a Stella Good Coffee, and we don’t need any more reminding. Like a little black dress, this pla [...]

    Kuzzo’s boasts an extensive menu of southern favorites, breakfast and lunch specialties. But when the place has chicken & waffles in the name, you don’t come here for salad. Americans have been eating chicken and waffles for more than a century. Its origins have been traced back to the 1790s when fried chicken was a common breakfast item [...]

    There is an unsuspecting hidden gem tucked away in Tower 200 of the GM Renaissance Center. It looks pretty corporate. But there are some surprisingly unique and home-y flavors coming out of the kitchen at Sweet Lorraine’s Fabulous Mac n’ Cheez. Mediocre mac and cheese saddens us. It should be so hard to screw up: cheese + noodles = yum, righ [...]

    Before you ever set foot inside W XYZ Bar, you must pass through the beautifully restored lobby of the David Whitney building. The bar is located inside the DW, in the Aloft hotel by Starwood. Normally, hotel bars don’t excited us very much. They can feel very corporate and generic. But this one, we like. W XYZ has some features that make it a [...]

    Wednesday’s were stir fry night at our house growing up. Stir-Friday wasn’t a thing back then. Those dinners were always a specific mix of chicken, vegetables and soy sauce. It wasn’t until years later that we realized stir fry isn’t a single dish, it’s a cooking method. Now that we’ve expanded our palates, when we’re craving anyth [...]

    Apparently, lemon does magical things to French fries. It makes some sense, if you think about it. Vinegar and salt are delicious on fries. Ketchup and salt: classic. But it’s not lemon juice plus salt that makes the house fries at Falafill so yummy. They taste like they have no salt on them, but taste salty. (Something about acid, and wishin [...]

    We actually didn’t know very much about Iraqi food before finding Arbeel Kabob. We have to confess we lumped it together with other Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisines. But there are some key distinctions that make Iraqi flavors stand out. This is food worth knowing. Arbeel Kabob is nestled in Detroit’s Warrendale neighborhood, where t [...]
