A downtown classic…

By Russell Basinger This month, I had a great experience at a downtown classic, the Grand Trunk Pub. Located at 612 Woodward Avenue, between Campus Martius and Hart Plaza, they are housed in a really cool old building that once was the Grand Trunk Railroad ticket station over 100 years ago. Because it was so nice out, I chose to sit outside this time. The service was really good. Sometimes when I sit outside, I get slow service, but...

Breakfast anyone?

Like many of us, I’m a big fan of breakfast. I also enjoy it even more when someone else makes it. In part, this is true because of the clean up associated with making breakfast.

Recently, I had a little extra time one Saturday morning and thought it would be a great opportunity to check out Zeff’s Coney Island for breakfast....

Fun and Tasty Equals the…..

If you like the combination of fun and tasty found at Green Dot Stables, you’ll love their new restaurant, Huron Room. The fun begins outside when a giant fish sticking out of the building greets you. Inside, they have cool industrial and nautical themed decor that includes a large mural of the lightship Huron. Huron Room is located at 2547 Bagley, between Michigan Avenue and I-96. Convenient parking can be found on the street...
