DTW: Dinner tonight not in Ann Arbor

momskitchen Jul 17, 2009 12:24 PM

I want to go out to dinner tonight, but not in my fair city as it is Art Fair, when we townies leave the city to the tourists. Where shall we go? Within an hours drive, please. Cocktails are a must. Your thoughts?

      Call ahead for Roast. I tried to get reservations last month six days ahead and I could almost hear the girl laughing at me over the phone. She said for Saturdays, at least, they book out weeks in advance.

        I called last night and was able to get reservations for tomorrow night. I guess its the weekends that are killer for reservations.

        You know, I didn't even consider Detroit, but it's well within my hour limit. The problem is that I just returned from work in the city, so I'm not inclined to drive back there tonight. But I will hit Roast some night after work - thanks for the idea.

          Common Grill?

          BTW momskitchen can you send me a email at showtime@theapollo.org

          I have a few questions for you...one being about Mother and how she is doing...of course I am talking vinegar.

            Sure enough! I'll do that. Maybe we should start a thread on home cooking about it. Your thoughts?

            Roast is a good deal less crowded at lunch. Wonderful stuff. You can't eat and run, but you could take a long lunch hour and make it back to work.
