MAIZ Mexican Cantina

MAIZ Mexican Cantina

Before we get to the food, can we talk about books for a minute today? Up until one week ago I really felt like the only person around who had not yet read Gone Girl (#FirstWorldProblems). The only books I have been reading for, well, basically the past YEAR have been the first five Game … Continue reading

Mezzevino

Mezzevino

Mainstreet Ventures has a new eatery in town. Mezzevino offers Mediterranean cuisine on the corner of Fourth and Liberty Streets in downtown Ann Arbor. A peek inside reveals colors and textures reminiscent of the Mediterranean coast. Happy Hour specials are offered, but only at the bar. That is a pet peeve of mine! Why can’t … Continue reading

Ann Arbor-Style Surf ‘n’ Turf

Ann Arbor-Style Surf ‘n’ Turf

As much as I love dining out, the huz and I have a few chef skillz up our sleeves (or so we like to think) which means we are capable of producing some pretty fantastic meals at home, too. For our wedding anniversary this year, we planned a “staycation” (much less epic than last year’s … Continue reading

Mr. Spots

Mr. Spots

Somehow I managed to earn my college degree at U-M without ever eating at Mr. Spots. A favorite to many college students for many years, Mr. Spots is best known for their chicken wings, waffle fries, and Philadelphia-style hoagies and steak sandwiches. I’ve also lived in Ann Arbor for ten years without really every properly … Continue reading
