Forest Grill, Birmingham, MI

  • 2

Totally enjoyed a late birthday lunch with my sister at Forest Grill in Birmingham today. We ordered from the "stimulus package" lunch menu -- three courses for $15. (Dinner version is $30.)

Started with tomato bisque with puff pastry croute--piping hot, super flaky pastry, rich but light bisque. Entree was chicken paillard with aged balsamic vinegar topped with argula/bacon/asparagas, grilled onion salad--pefectly seasoned meat, homemade bacon smokey and assertive and wonderful baby greens. Dessert:chocolate flecked bread pudding w/ creme Anglaise and Tahitian vanilla ice cream and Juno rose to drink. Warm, professional service, sleek but comfortable space.

Will definitely go back, interesting menu and the "value" lunch was a real bargain given the quality of the cooking and the ingredients.

Glad the chef, Brian Polcyn, got props on Bourdain's "No Reservations" last night.

  1. BB, Thanks for your post. Glad to read such a glowing review by a trusted 'hound. Brian sure was his bad self on the show last night. I thought it great PR for Schoolcraft & Detroit as well.
