Petoskey/Charlevoix with young kids?

We like City Park Grill in Petoskey. I'll second the suggestions of the Sidedoor Saloon and La Senorita. There's also Freshwater Grill on 31 between Petoskey and Harbor Springs that has yummy whitefish. Not sure if they still have it, but several years back, their menu included an incredible whitefish reuben.

If the weather's bad, you could also catch a movie.

Have fun!

Savory and Sweet Uses for Fig Jam

I put Trader Joe's fig butter on my grilled cheese sandwiches, along with turkey pepperoni or deli roasted turkey or ham. So good!

Best Fish and Chips in Detroit ?

I didn't know there was a Scalawags in RH! I used to go to the one in Petoskey (which is now closed, I think) whenever I was up there and loved their whitefish reuben... so good! They also sold a smoked whitefish dip in their cold case, which was also fantastic. I might have to get over to RH soon...

ETA that I read further and see that the RH location is closed, and that perhaps the one in Petoskey simply got a name change. Thanks for the info!

Seva in Detroit Midtown?

I highly recommend the TLT ("A rolled-up sandwich of chargrilled tempeh, cheddar cheese, fresh guacamole, tomatoes and shredded romaine lettuce, in a whole wheat tortilla), as well as the eggs veracruz. Both are outstanding, as are their daily/weekly specials. (I haven't been to the Detroit location yet, so I don't know if these items are offered there.)
