Family owned restaurant, bar and banquet facility.
Don and Katrina Studvent’s new place is a bistro, if there can be an American version with a soul food foundation, and no liquor license for a few more months. It’s a bistro in the sense that it’s a family-owned place that serves moderately priced, relatively simple dishes and simple meals. It’s pretty, with attractive prices and a $13 Sunday brunch buffet that includes catfish with grits, chicken with waffles. Other choices are fried potatoes, turkey sausage, country bacon, fried ham, fried turkey, omelets, French toast, fresh fruit, breads and pastries.
"The bar is one of Birmingham's favorite watering holes, the dining room in the back slightly less frantic at this brightly reworked circa-1932 building where chef Jack Leone has done wonders for the menu. Now colorful contemporary dishes, typified by angelhair pasta with chicken, tomatoes, white beans and artichokes, stuffed tenderloin and linguine with shrimp, spinach and lemon, and some great Italian salads make the food live up to the witty decor which pays homage to the light bulb. A separate, downstairs room called Edison's offers live jazz, its own menu of light dishes, and upscale drinks like martinis and champagne in the evening, Thursday through Saturday."
Enjoy casual dining and creative cuisine such as steak, seafood and pasta in a relaxed atmosphere. Includes an extensive wine list, upstairs balcony dining, and vegetarian friendly selections.
The Book Cadillac’s 24 Grille is a less formal, though no less expensive, alternative to the acclaimed meat-eaters’ paradise in the hotel’s opposite corner, Roast. It has a somewhat shorter, American menu, with just a couple of steaks and four seafood dishes. 24 Grille says that its ingredients are preservative-free and sourced locally when possible. As at many places these days, 24’s calamari are crisp and wonderful, served with capers, lemon beurre blanc and chili aioli. The dressings make the dish. The melt-in-your-mouth scallops, sweet and smoky and served with clams in the shell, are excellent. For vegetarians, there are Himalayan cabbage rolls, stuffed with grilled tofu, mushrooms and some nutty Himalayan red rice. And delicious veal meatloaf comes as a tall tower — layers of meatloaf and bacon, interwoven with layers of potato purée. 24 Grille also has a happy hour from 4 to 6 on weekdays, when wine and appetizers are half off.
Bar & grill with great food and great nightlife.
For many diners, the lack of a liquor license is a deal-breaker. That proclivity can relegate most Middle Eastern spots to a lunchtime treat rather than an evening pleasure. Farmington Hills’ 2Booli addresses the problem with not only a full bar but a happy hour that lasts all evening long, Monday through Friday. Draughts are $2.50, margaritas and martinis are $4, and featured wines of the week are also about $4, or $12-$15 a bottle. As the name makes clear, the restaurant has aspirations to address several cultures around the Mediterranean, rather than just the Lebanon from which the owners’ parents emigrated. Bruschetta, polenta, fritto misto, clam linguine, and a meatball sub share the menu with tabbouleh and falafel.
A classic diner with modern, Detroit flair. Enjoy a '50s-style lunch at the counter or a modern cocktail after work. A full-service soda fountain pays tribute to the orginal five & dime shop that was once open in the Kresge building. All business lunches receive 10 percent off, Compuware and Quicken employees receive 15 percent off. Open late on Mondays and Tuesdays for an extended happy hour with complimentary appetizers and drink specials. Daily lunch specials, free WiFi.

Every Asian cuisine attempted -- Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai and Vietnamese -- gets a heavy-handed or boring treatment. No fire in the "spicy" dishes; no subtlety in anything.
Quick service and great coneys in a family atmosphere.
At dinnertime, there’s just one way to order: the all-you-can-eat meat-and-vegetable platter for $16.90 per person or the vegetarian platter for $14.90. Patrons of the Blue Nile, Taste of Ethiopia or Windsor’s Marathon are familiar with the routine: Little heaps of fabulous dishes are placed on a giant circle of spongy injera bread, which everyone shares. More injera is alongside, folded like napkins, to use as your eating utensil until you’re ready to eat the tablecloth. At lunchtime, you can keep the meal smaller and order one meat with two vegetables for $7.95. But what makes Addis Ababa different from other Ethiopian restaurants is that it has a take-out menu. Twelve ounces of the vegetable dishes are $2.95, meat $3.75, injera free. You could create your own feast at home or for a picnic. It’s open every evening and for lunch Tuesday through Saturday.

Is it a coincidence that the Z-Show 2 follows the season finale of AMC’s hit show The Walking Dead? This year they’re opening the gallery to multiple artists in a variety of mediums to feature nearly 50 pieces of zombified art from local and regional artists. Accompanying the art will be a slew of talented musical and dance acts to get even the stiffest of zombie bodies moving. Due to the graphic nature of the art and performances, this show is not recommended for young children. The show will be on display at the Pheonix Café in Hazel Park. Doors open at 8 p.m. There is a $5 entry fee.
You may know him as the founding member of the experimental, neo-psychedelic group Animal Collective. Now Avey Tare has partnered up with Angel Deradoorian, former member of Dirty Projectors, and former Ponytail drummer Jeremy Hyman to create a sound inspired by a freaky mesh of garage rock and ’60s novelty pop. With the release of their new album Enter the Slasher House, the trio is ready to prove its weirdness once and for all. Ponytail member Dustin Wong also plays this Friday at The Blind Pig. The show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $15.
After his highly anticipated major-label debut in February, Schoolboy Q is now on the Oxymoron World Tour.

Oxymoron features singles “Man of the Year,” “Collard Greens,” “Break the Bank” and “Yay Yay,” two of which have made it to the Billboard Hot 100 this year. Schoolboy Q will play this Friday at St. Andrews. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $22.50. (Photo via Facebook)
