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.

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.

This duo is female folk royalty, creating emotionally charged music that’s captivated fans for decades. Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriters Amy Ray and Emily Sailers have been performing under the Indigo Girls name since their college years, circa 1985. Identifying as lesbians since the beginning of their careers, they’ve also been crowned as icons of the LGBT right movement. Their first studio album packed at #22 on the Billboard charts, and they won a Grammy for “Best Contemporary Folk Recording.” Since then, they’ve become a staple on the folk scene, and this weekend you can catch them playing their most iconic hits with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.
