What to eat in Ann Arbor, MI?

Hello,

My wife and I have lived in Bowling Green, OH for about two months. We've explored the city and its surroundings, and we've decided to go to Ann Arbor this Saturday because we've heard that there is lots of good food and markets there.

She is a fish-eating vegetarian and I eat red meat sporadically. What is worth visiting in Ann Arbor. We will just be there for the day and will want a good place for lunch, a good coffee shop, and we want to visit several shops and markets. I would also like to visit a beer store if possible.

Please give me all of your suggestions.

@Mbarbee Thank you very much for your long, kind reply. This will be our sixth week in Bowling Green, and we've discovered many of the places that you've mentioned. Regardless, thank you for taking the time to reply. We have really enjoyed both Walt Churchill's and the Anderson's. They are both great markets. Naslada was quite good when we went there a few weeks ago. Although, we were quite dissatisfied with the Bowling Green farmer's market. It was very small and didn't have many fresh fruits or vegetables. Do you know of a good source for local, fresh eggs? After trying them both, I think I prefer Campus Pollyeyes pizza to Myles pizza, but we haven't tries Pisanello's yet. What do you think of them? I've been to grounds for thought a few times now, and I always find their coffee a little watery. I know they roast their own beans, but it just never seems fresh to me. Am I deluded? Is there better coffee or a better place to get roast beans in town? Finally, do you have any opinion about the Thai place that is next to Uraku. It's very close to where we live, and I've been curious to try it. I know it is owned by the same person as Uraku, and the reviews for Uraku that I've read have been less than positive. This has made me loathe to try their Thai restaurant. Can you share any experiences? Are their prices reasonable?

Thank you again for taking the time to respond to my earlier post.

I haven't eaten at Squeaker's yet, but I have been in there. The menu looked pretty unimpressive. Is that the wrong impression? Can you recommend anything?
I also tried Myles Pizza and wasn't very impressed. I prefer thin, crispy pizza and myles was the exact opposite. It was very chewy and doughy. They don't skimp on ingredients though, which is nice.

My wife and I just moved to Bowling Green, Ohio for her to take a job at the university. We moved from Bloomington, IN where we both fell in love with the farmers' market and many grocery stores. In that way moving to Bowling Green has been a bit of a shock. We've been to Beckett's (a C-), Reverend's (B) and Naslada Bistro (B+), but we're looking for more to eat, and we don't know the area.

We tend to like a little of everything. She is a vegetarian who also eats fish and shell fish. I am mostly a vegetarian but will also eat all types of meat if it looks good. We would love to find somewhere to get good fruits and vegetables. We've been to Toledo to three different markets (Claudia's, Fresh market and one other) but all of them were very, very disappointing compared to what we are used to from Bloomington.

We would like to find the good food here and in the area. Ideally, I would like to find good sushi (or is is better to just go to Akihana in Columbus), Vietnamese, Korean and middle eastern food. We did find the Tiger bakery in Toledo, which seems to be a diamond in the rough. Those were the best grape leaves I have ever had and the fatayer were amazing as well.

Also if there are any good regional specialties please let me know.
