Then, a tiny restaurant tucked into a little retail plaza on Seven Mile introduced us to a whole new combination of flavors with their corned beef eggroll. It might sound strange at first, but the flavors really work. The corned be [...]

    Pizza night has become something of a smash-and-grab job. Greasy pies are cranked out mechanically with little imagination these days. But Corktown’s Ottava Via is spearheading the return of artisan pizzas and leading the charge to save pizza night. David Steinke and Tim Springstead (of Mercury Burger Bar and Nemo’s, respectively) teamed up [...]

    It may not look like much from the outside, but there is a hidden gem concealed inside this humble eatery. Food Exchange is tucked onto a somewhat lonely stretch of Harper Ave. near Seneca St. on Detroit’s southeast side. The block is mostly abandoned (save for a church across the street), but it’s easy to see why Food Exchange has survived de [...]

    Centrally located in downtown’s Harmonie Park, Colors is truly a case of a rare jewel hidden in plain site.
