She ate: Winter flavors wow

by Gabrielle Johnson
The State Room wasn’t one of those restaurants that I thought was cool when I was growing up in Lansing. When my friends and I spent our high school allowances on fancy dinners before prom, we headed to Beggar’s Banquet, Mountain Jack’s or the Golden Rose. The State Room...

He ate: Tripping over superlatives

by Mark Nixon
The sign out front — Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center — does not exactly scream “Great food inside!” It may be one reason the State Room, on the western edge of the Michigan State University campus, can be an overlooked star in Greater Lansing’s culinary constellation.

Wine and dine

Matching vino with local Mexican cuisine

by Justin King
Beer and burritos are truth. There’s something magical about annihilating a fat chimichanga while throwing back some Bohemia pilsners. This simple and glorious decadence that has proven to resolve 70 percent of roommate disputes involving unwashed dishes and friends who sleep on the couch.

She ate: Top five

by Gabrielle Johnson
In 2014, my favorite local restaurants remained my favorites, including Tavern 109 in Williamston, the State Room in East Lansing, and Maru in Okemos. Of course, I added more to my list, but I also found some off-the-beaten-path new places for favorite sustenance.

He ate:´More, please´

by Mark Nixon
If I’m to pick an area restaurant of the year, I’ll choose one that still has a pulse (hats off for you, Fork in the Road). In fact, latest reports tell me that the Naing Family Restaurant on Lansing’s south side is thriving. That’s as good a way to start the 2015 dining scene as anything I can imagine.

by Mark Nixon and Gabrielle Johnson

On the bubbly

Sparkling wine recommendations for the holidays and beyond

by Justin King
In the video for his 2006 song, “Show Me What You Got,” Jay-Z is presented with a bottle of Cristal at a poker table only to dismiss it in favor of a gold bottle of Ace of Spades, aka Armand de Brignac, which sells for roughly $300 per bottle. Cut to 2014: Jay-Z bought the winery last month for an undisclosed amount.

He Ate, She Ate

Harry's place adds Greek flair to traditional bar and grill fare

by Mark Nixon and Gabrielle Johnson
Urban revival cuisine It’s not much of a stretch to say that Harry’s Place grew up alongside the American automobile. Since the early 1920s, this watering hole on Lansing’s west side has had a front row seat as the bodies of dozens of car models were churned out across...

Returning to their roots

Sharing, swapping in exchange for commerce grows subculture

by Belinda Thurston
It felt like the meeting of a secret club as participants followed the shelter signs into the basement of downtown Lansing’s Capital Area District Library. In a large storage room, the walls were lined with tables bearing a buffet of culinary items for the September gathering of the Mid-Mitten Homemade Food Swap. It’s not a potluck or a farmers market, but something in the middle. Some came as far as 80 miles to trade items like maple vanilla coffee syrup, apple pies, egg rolls and fruit-infused vodka. There were about 20 swappers, some bringing as many at four different menu items. Some brought 10 or 15 items.
