He ate: Small plates pack a big punch

by Mark Nixon
“Sixty years ago, I bellied up to the bar at Ed’s and had my first legal drink. As I recall, it was a $0.15 draft that came with a chunk of pickled bologna, a hard-boiled egg and some saltines. It was breakfast time, and I had just finished the night shift on the New York C...

She ate: Out of this world pizzas

by Gabrielle Johnson
Since Paul Revere’s Tavern unceremoniously slammed its doors last summer, breaking hearts from Okemos to Grand Ledge, the pizza game in this town has been weak. So it was with a certain amount of trepidation that the fiance and I watched the extremely popular Zoobie’s bar spre...

She ate: A worthy breakfast pit stop

He ate: Service and charm fuel the Sinclair Grill

by Mark Nixon
There’s a little Italian restaurant we visit whenever we’re in Las Vegas. The food ranges from OK to not bad. But we keep coming back to Battista’s Hole in the Wall for the décor — and for Gordy.

Michigan farmers markets grow on new ideas and old-world dirt

by Lawrence Cosentino
A bumper crop of farmers markets is spreading across Michigan, ranging in size from Detroit’s bustling, 4.5-acre Eastern Market to the dozen-and-a-half booths of the tiny Bath market just north of Lansing — about 330 markets statewide in 2015, up from 150 nine years ago.
