Petoskey, MI!

I love ethnic too but usually have to drag the better half, although he is a good sport and inevitably finds something he likes. This year we're going to try the Twisted Olive which was on my list for last year but we never made it (they serve breakfast too), and Chandler's, on the more upscale American side. For Italian, I liked Villa Ristorante last year, hubby thought it was so-so. One of our other favorite places in P-key is City Park Grill, check out their menu since I can't remember if they have any veg. options. Great atmosphere and history and marvelous biscuits! Just outside Petoskey is the Galley Gourmet in the Village at Bay Harbor. The food here is excellent (really good pizza!), lots of veg. options, and would be great for a picnic lunch. Have a wonderful trip and report back.

Petoskey, MI!

For a casual breakfast in Petoskey, we like Julienne Tomatoes, a friendly place with good food and great coffee. For vegetarian options, try Mim's Mediterranean Grill. The hummus was awesome! We also liked Thai Orchid; I'm not certain, but they would probably have some vegetarian options.

Palace Grille in Auburn Hills, MI

Has anyone been to the Palace Grille inside the Palace of Auburn Hills? If so, is it worth the price and would you recommend it, and if not, anything else nearby that you would?

Vegas Buffet - Wynn or Bellagio?

I would have to agree with swf36d, the desserts were the only worthwhile reason to visit the Bellagio buffet. Better yet, go to the Patissiere and skip the buffet altogether. As for the service, they reset our table while we were at the buffet, and when we came back with our plates, there were other people sitting at our table, and while I can understand how this could happen when you pay in advance, in my mind it was still inexcusable.
