            Fresh Local ingredients (many times from neighborhood garden projects), Sy Ginsberg corned beef is always a plus, A owner that bends over backwards to satisfy his clients, great soups, many Michigan made products for sale, great desserts, and locally made bread (I know he was having a discussion about switching to Avalon but I am not sure what he is using now) .

              Thanks for the info. Sounds great. I will try it as soon as I have a chance.

                  I know he had been talking about it for awhile and asked everyone's opinion on it.

                  I hope the move allows for a slight expansion on the menu. Not so much to the point that it loses focus. Greg is a very smart guy and I am sure will excel in the new spot.

        2. re: rainsux

          The list ought to begin and end with rainsux's Onion Roll Deli. If you named any other deli on this list and have never been to the Onion Roll, you are doing yourself a huge disservice by settling for inferior corned beef and reubens.

          Zingerman's is definitely worth a mention, but to throw it into the mix with the other places on this list is sort of like comparing apples to oranges, IMO.

          1. I haven't tried any you've mentioned but I really liked the one at Casey's Tavern in Ann Arbor.

            1. If money is no object, Zingerman's in Ann Arbor is hard to beat. Also try the Montreal Smoked Meat reuben.

                Ya I was shocked no one said Zingerman's. haha

                1. re: Jim M

                  Yes indeed. IF money is no object. :)

                    I'm a great fan of Zingerman's Georgia Reuben, made with smoked turkey and cole slaw. I live in Lake Orion. Once a year I travel to Battle Creek, and always swing by Zingerman's for a Georgia Reuben, which I eat half of for lunch, and save the other half for dinner. It's fabulous!

                  2. Mati's Deli in Dearborn is one of my favorites.

                      I can see why. We stopped on the way home Monday and loved the place.
