I went here for their $20 first time haircut and Lindsay was my stylist. I went back to her again, she was so great. Really, really sweet, had lots of tats, but hey this is Venice! The second time was a little pricey, but not out of the range of upscale salons. They were actually shooting a reality show when I was getting my haircut. I always park in the neighborhood across the street because parking on the street is tough. I will be going back to her soon because I need a haircut!
This is one of my favorite places in Ann Arbor. Grizzley Peak brews their own beer and has seasonal beer throughout the year. I've had many items off their menu including the chicken club sandwich, beer cheese soup, Grizzley Burger, salad with dried cherries, macaroni and cheese, portobello burger, all fantastic. There can be a long wait at times, but the restaurant is pretty large and has many tables. The bread that they serve before dinner is excellent as well. Try the beer flight, lots of fun.
This is a nice french place hidden in the basement in downtown Ann Arbor. It is a very intimate setting. I went here for my graduation dinner with my family. They took our reservation for before the restaurant was open by accident, so we arrived and could not eat. They did comp a few rounds of free drinks which was great. We were in no rush. I got fish, I can't remember what kind but it was great. I think it would be a nice place for couples.
This place was great. We went with a very large party for my friend's 22nd birthday. The employees were very understanding of our loudness. Everyone loved their food. I had scallops and would highly recommend them. There was a good wine list too. The waiters did a nice little birthday celebration for my friend, complete with a dessert!
This place is actually closed. It was a Leo's coney Island, then King of Queens, and now NYPD Pizza. This was on the corner of South Forest and South University and had a large variety of food, not one cuisine specifically. It was open for only a short time.
This place has a funny name, but the place is not hokey at all--don't be put off by the large wheel outside. Great food, I got a burger when I went with my family. A lot of younger people go here too. It is a free-standing restaurant on a corner, so sort of an interesting location in Rochester/Troy.
I LOVE this place. It's classy without being uptight. It's located in old Kingsley Hotel which is now the Radisson. I love their clam chowder and lobster bisque. If it is crowded you can sit in the bar area if you're okay with more casual. It's a good place for families with older children, business dinners/meetings and for friends. The service is very friendly.
I'm not usually a big fan of Coneys, but this place is excellent! Good drunk/hangover food too (I think they're open pretty late). If you want to go healthy, their egg white omelettes are very tasty. This place has been around for a while and is a favorite of the locals.
Last time I was in Birmingham, this place was closed. It was a great lunch spot when it was open though. Amazing soups and you could get a little side like their amazing cornbread. I always waited for the day that they had baked potato soup. The service was very friendly and quick. Limited seating though.
I will go out of my way to go to this deli. It's tucked away in a strip mall shopping center. You'd never know it was there. Their bread is amazing, soup is amazing. Not a lot of seating, but good enough to get it to go and enjoy it elsewhere!
