Previously known as The Moveable Feast, Daniel's been Ann Arbor's top restaurant for more than 20 years, a place for celebrations serving creative American cuisine with global influences. Reservations recommended.
For more than 20 years, in two locations and under two owners and two names, D’Pauli’s (formerly Giorgio’s) has thrived on its reputation as a diner with upscale surprises: steak Diane, veal Marsala, a burger with chutney and Bordelaise sauce. Today, though, the burgers have taken a way-back seat on the dinner menu; only three are offered, plus five sandwiches. The rest of the long menu is a mix of items like those you’d find at Big Boy (such as “Light Delight,” tuna and cottage cheese) and such higher-falutin ones as steak au poivre and veal piccata. (Lunch tends more to the bacon cheeseburger side, while breakfast will bring you anything from house-made hash browns to Belgian waffle jubilee, with flaming Kirsch.) One of the dishes D’Pauli’s is famous for is tomato basil bisque. It’s salmon-colored, with one big piece of basil in it, rather sweet, and served with Krispy saltines in cellophane packets. Another nice touch is the little plate of olive oil with a dab of basil pesto, brought at the outset with warm rolls. Veal Marsala also delivers a big punch of sweetness. Portion sizes are truly enormous; that’s where the value comes in, especially if you take advantage of the 2-6 p.m. 20 percent off Early Bird Special.
The restaurant’s philosophy is slow and local. If that sounds pretty fashionable these days, note that chef and co-owner Alan Merhar is surrounded by farmers, making it easy to make the most of them for his in season produce. His relationship with Mike Prochaska of Prochaska Farms, for instance (it’s four miles away), is such that each winter the two pore over seed catalogs and decide what to plant and then serve. The resulting dishes are fancy in the sense that sophisticated measures have been taken, but (mostly) all-American if you look at the ingredients. Not everything’s local, obviously: Scottish salmon, scallops, certified Black Angus steaks. But many of the side dishes will be, come summer. Desserts are made in-house and include a rich cappuccino crème brûlée, pumpkin pound cake, tiramisu, Key lime cheesecake, and blood-orange or lime-ginger sorbets.

"Located in a beautiful old country farmhouse that is rumored to be Henry Ford's old foxhole, the Lord Fox offers an elegant atmosphere and entrées such as beef Wellington, veal Oscar, roast duckling and hazelnut whitefish. We also feature an extensive wine cellar, outdoor dining, and an intimate gazebo overlooking a stream. Banquet and private party facilities are also available."
"Authentic Italian cuisine served in an intimate atmosphere for over 11 years. Specializing in homemade classic and nouveau Italian dishes from northern and southern Italy. Full bar service and extensive wine list. Filet mignon alla Gorgonzola, cherry hazelnut chicken and linguine frutti di mare are among our finest entrées. Outdoor dining on the terrace during the summer months. We also specialize in private functions for family or business occasions. Experience the true taste of Italy!"

Come out and celebrate Detroit’s 313th birthday at The Detroit Historical Society’s Streets of Old Detroit exhibit.

Tomorrow night, the sweet indie pop melodies of this Scottish five-piece will be floating through the Loving Touch. . With ease, front woman Tracyanne Campbell’s smooth, candied vocals and wry Scottish story telling illustrate the challenges of life. Themes often circle around heartbreak, a common thread running through their recent album Desire Lines, released June 4. The album title nods to life’s uncommon paths that are marked by wear, not by signs; the paths our feet choose naturally. Forging its own desire lines, Camera Obscura’s unconventional style is well off the beaten path.
Get naked! Well, almost naked.

It’s a movement.” Celebrate urban cycling and that hot bod of yours by scooting around Detroit with a bunch of nearly naked strangers. After the ride, there will be cold drinks and hot tunes to shake your ass to. Ride starts at 8:30 p.m.
Every other year, the Puppeteers of America hosts festivals that bring the best and brightest puppeteers to the region. This year's Great Lakes Regional Puppetry Festival comes to Detroit, bringing three days of award-winning shows to the DIA.

Bentley with hand-carved traditional Czech marionettes and watercolor paintings. The Snowflake Man plays at 3:30 p.m. at 5200 Woodward Avenue, Detroit; 313-833-7900; dia.org. Check the dia.org for the full schedule. The puppet shows are free with museum admission (and free for residents of Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb counties).
Come out and enjoy a night of kings and queens, princesses and duels at the Redford Theaters showing of the 1987 classic, The Princess Bride.
