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.

Most Metro Detroiters are familiar with Eastern Market’s Saturday afternoon tradition of artisanal vibes, fresh produce, and live music, but how well do you know the bars? Despite the fact that the areas restaurants and shops are local household names, the bars still remain relatively mysterious. Led by the Detroit Experience Factory, the weeken’s bar tour encourages you to pull back the veil and explore Eastern Market’s oldest bar, Vivio’s Food and Spirits, a 40-year-old family business with a smashing Bloody Mary recipe. The tour also stops into Cutter’s, an “old stand-by” dive bar with friendly bartenders, Faygo pop, and classic bar food. Sorry, no craft beers there, but newcomer Thomas Magee’s is the final stop, providing a juke joint ambience for those who like sports, whiskey and local beer.

Named after Detroit’s vaunted Cafe Mahogany, this night is dedicated to rhythm, art and poetry. Famed for hosting fantastic local jazz, soul and spoken-word music in the ‘90s, Cafe Mahogany is often representative of vibrant creation being born from hardship.

Come out and see some of the city’s best talent in action, such as internationally renowned poet and performer Jessica Care Moore. A Detroit native, Moore has made a name for herself as a playwright, poet, publicist, activist and filmmaker. Her poetry has been featured on the Russell Simmons HBO show, Def Poetry Jam, Talib Kewli’s Attack on the Block mixtape and the album Nastradamus by rapper Nas. Catch the action when doors open at 7:30 pm.
From the creators of South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, comes this musical satire centered around two straight-laced Mormon missionaries who are sent to a remote Ugandan village for two years. Known for being critical, vulgar and hilarious, the show is the winner of 9 Tony awards, one of those being Best Musical. It’s been said that if you’re not a fan of South Park’s humor, the show feels offensive with unoriginal, formulaic music, but if you’re cool with that, it’s probable that you’ll love it. It’s a love or hate affair with jokes that might make you cringe or have you awkwardly initiating the standing ovation at the end. Judge for yourself this week. Weekly show times vary and can be found at michiganopera.org.
After a seven year hiatus, Grammy Award-winning roots music trio Nickel Creek has declared to once again take their act on the road to celebrate their silver anniversary. The trio decided to take a brief break back in 2007 in order to grow as individuals, as well as musicians, away from the bright lights of stardom. With a more adult attitude and sound, the trio is now ready to share its special blend of music with audiences across the country. Violinist Sara Watkins, mandolin strummer Chris Thile and guitarist Sean Watkins are set to perform in Ann Arbor this Saturday. They'll be sharing songs off their brand-new album, A Dotted Line, along with longtime favorites spanning the course of their career.
