Covenant Wines

Hi Kosher board!

I was wondering about what people know about COVENANT WINES (http://www.covenantwines.com). I have done a search on the board and see bits about them here and there -- it seems like the general consensus is that people like their wine, but they are pretty pricey?
Is there someone out there who has tried a few of their wines and can give a comprehensive overview? Or recommend a bottle which is worth the price?
I am hoping to give a bottle or two to in-laws as a gift --- but seeing as their stuff is so expensive I would rather not wing it -- any help is much appreciated!

Thank you!

Monday Night Special Dinner!

Thanks! Sticky rice sounds great! I would really like to eat there, but I am torn between that and wanting to have a more "special" ambience.
We will be staying at the hotel palomar, but we will have a car and are happy to cab/take public transit.
I think we will skip green zebra; will look at lula, boka, and the lobby!

Monday Night Special Dinner!

Here are some places I am considering, would love anyone's input.
1. The Publican -- is it very pork and shellfish heavy? My boyfriend abides by (some) Jewish dietary laws
2. Lula Cafe
3. Longman & Eagle -- too hip?
4. Sticky Rice -- not fancy random Thai restaurant, but there is no good Thai food in Detroit, and someone on this board said it was good...

Monday Night Special Dinner!

Hi there, my boyfriend and I are coming from Detroit for our anniversary and would like to go to somewhere a little bit fancy and not painfully hip (i.e. not loud) but also not overly staid (we are 28 and 30). However, we will only be in town on MONDAY night, and lots of places are closed (Frontera, Fat Rice, various molecular gastronomy). We would like to eat not overly fussy food, but it could be nice to dress up a little bit. I have looked at other threads but am happy to be directed to ones I may have missed. Thank you very much!
I have noticed that Green Zebra is open on Mondays -- do people like this? We are not vegetarians, but are interested. It seems to be getting mixed yelp reviews...

THANKS!

Kosher food in detroit suburbs??

Whoah! I don't know what kind of deep seated message board controversies I'm stepping on -- but I just wanted to say we did in fact go to inn season and it was a very pleasant experience! The food was not spectacular but the special eggplant curry with basmati rice and guava/mango chutney was tasty --a noodle dish not so much. The service was very nice and friendly and I found the restaurant to be very comfortable and pleasant and I think the parents were very happy. They are not super picky about food (taste-wise, obviously they are picky about it kosher-wise).
Thank you thank you everyone who posted I really appreciate it!!!

Kosher food in detroit suburbs??

Has any eaten at the Michigan Hillel recently? Was it good? I like the idea of a meat meal, but if it is not going to be as good maybe it's not worth the trek...

Thank you so much Rabbi Jason and Michigan Mishuganer this is such great thorough information!

We were planning to go to the Hillel in Ann Arbor for dinner tonight -- but I have heard Inn Season Cafe in Royal Oak is very good! hmmmmmm...

Kosher food in detroit suburbs??

Thank you for your recommendation but I don't think hygrade is kosher. (Just for anyone reading this in the future). A kosher restaurant doesn't serve pork, and doesn't serve meat and dairy together (like, for example, a patty melt). But thank you for taking the time to comment!

Yes I suspected that stage was not kosher when I looked at their menu and saw ham and cheese ; )
But I very much appreciate the suggestion!

Kosher food in detroit suburbs??

Hello! My boyfriends parents are coming to town (we live in detroit proper) and we are looking for some kosher restaurants to take them to, and possibly somewhere where we can buy prepared kosher foods to buy for them. Like a deli or something.

Any recommendations would be so appreciated! We saw Jerusalem pizza in the jcc but are looking for something a tiny bit fancier/not pizza.
Thank you!

Best Mexican Food [Detroit Area]

I think the best Mexican food is at el taco veloz in mexicantown. It is not fancy! But very tasty. I am from California, just to give some context.

Downtown Detroit

I think brooklyn street local is a very nice breakfast -- not so far from you ... It's cute, serves warm scones (and poutine and eggs and things) and is not too pricey.

kosher butcher in palo alto?

I was wondering if there are any kosher butchers in palo alto? I have read in a few places that there is kosher meat at Mollie Stone's -- and at stores in San Jose and Oakland, but was wondering if there is any other option to know about.

Thanks very much!

hello! would any one know about where I can find a nice kosher chicken in seattle? the university QFC has some, and whole foods has some frozen parts, but if there is anything anyone especially likes outside of these options, I would love to hear.

thanks in advance!

Help me eat a quiet but "innovative" dinner with my dad!

Hello, my dad is coming to town and we are looking for a restaurant that is "innovative" but not too loud (he is hard of hearing). I'm sure that such a place exists, but I can't really think of anything off the top of my head. I tried Locanda Verde but they are all booked up. And I'm not even sure if it's very innovative anyways. Thanks! (also we will probably eat at Bar Masa on one night, so not that one/no sushi). I appreciate your help!
