Metro Detroit delis serving Detroit's own Sy Ginsberg corned beef?

According to this article, which was posted previously among related posts, it's "Chicago’s Vienna corned beef, customized to their specifications".

Tullio's LaRiviera Restaurant (Allen Park, MI)

My sister said there is major renovation/construction going on in the old Tullio's LaRiviera Restaurant in Allen Park (which has been closed for years).

She said her hair dresser heard a rumor (VERY unsubstantiated rumor) that Giovanni's might be moving there.

Personally I would be very surprised if that were true. But hey, stranger things I guess.

Has anyone heard any such talk?

Aventura-Ann Arbor

I went there last Friday night for the first time. I liked it.

We had the HAMBURGUESA DE CORDERO (lamb hamburgers) and the COCHINILLO (suckling pig).

The Cochinillo comes with your choice of 3 side dishes. We got the flat bread pizza, the mushrooms, and the potatoes.

Everything was very good.

The ambience is a bit busy, and a little on the loud side maybe, but it is still interesting.

I'm looking forward to going back and trying more items. There's plenty to chose from for sure.

Pick A Restaurant: Ann Arbor

Definitely West End Grill in my opinion. Just be sure to make reservations well in advance if you decide to go there.

real (meatless) food near Hampton Inn Detroit Novi @14 mile road?

Siam Spicy is on Novi Road and Twelve Mile Road. They have vegetarian options.

I really like their Pla Lad Prik.... catfish in a black bean sauce. Very tasty.

Their other options are very good as well. And they have beer/wine which might be a plus depending on your tastes.

There is also Shiro for Japanese/sushi. I haven't been there in a very long time so I can't give a personal recommendation regarding their food/service. Perhaps someone else has been there recently and could comment.

They teach a class on making their Jewish Rye bread at the Bakehouse Bake! training facility.

I took it and I have to say I've made rye bread at home that really is as good as you can get at the Bakehouse.

I highly recommend their training classes if anyone is even remotely interested in taking one. They're fun, you learn a lot, and you really can make great stuff at home.

Great find for Up North diners in Walloon Lake Village

I forwarded this to a friend of mine who lives up there. He replied that he knows the chef and his wife. The chef used to be the chef at the Bay Harbor Yacht Club.

joe's bistro - birmingha, mi

I haven't been to the Bistro yet, but I looked at the menu online. Yes, it isn't cheap.

But you can remove some of the sting if you like to have good wine with your dinner.

You can order any bottle of wine carried in the market at retail + $15 corkage fee.

Depending on the wine you select, that can be a decent savings.

Have you been to West End Grill? I've always thought it was about as good as it gets in Ann Arbor.

infused oils

Fuchsia Dunlop in her book "Land of Plenty" heats the oil on high heat until smoking hot.

She then removes the oil from the heat and lets it cool to about 225 - 250 degrees then pours the oil over the chile flakes.

If the oil is too hot you can burn the chiles... if it's too cool, you won't extract the maximum flavor from the chiles.

Could Sweet Afton's have closed? The link to their site no longer appears to work.

This doesn't open until May (in case you came back again), and I haven't been to it, but it sounds like it would be great. Tea at the Greenfield Village:
