Any good eats in Oberlin, OH or W. Detroit?
Co-sign on Modern Food. & Spirits. My friends were a little off put because the table they wanted to sit at was being saved for a regular but not specifically reserved, (i was embarrassed it bothered them enough to comment) but the food was excellent.
Speaking of the town I grew up in, The Red Coat Tavern, which has the reputation of having some of the finest burgers in the Metro Detroit area, has taken over or is about to take over for Zinc on Orchard Lake just South of Maple. Unfortunately, the area is a construction nightmare at present.
Continuing on the NW suburbs - in no particular order ...
If you venture to Modern Food & Spirits in Keego Harbor;
I recommend the soup sampler as an appetizer.
I enjoy The Fiddler for eastern european fare:
