On Sunday, January 18, Ann Arbor Restaurant Week includes over 50 of the city’s finest eateries. Perusing the list of participating venues, you may be wondering which three-course $28 dinner specials and  two-for-one lunches to sample. Broken down by category, here’s what I’ll be aiming at. Enjoy!   

Date Night

Mani Osteria & Bar (wood-fired pizza and Italian-inspired cocktails), Isalita (refined Latin standards) Grange Kitchen & Bar (organic and sustainable everything), The Ravens Club (culinary cocktails and farm-to-fork American), Pacific Rim (fresh, light, and elegant Pan-Asian fare).

Day Dining

The Lunch Room (vegan, gluten-free friendly), Prickly Pear Cafe (plenty of fresh salads and southwest-y options), Bigalora (gourmet pizza is always worth it).

Just Cuz

Blue Tractor BBQ & Brewery (um… BBQ and beer? Never a bad idea), Jolly Pumpkin Cafe & Brewery (Main Street’s gastropublican hangout), Grizzly Peak (for solid food in a pub-y setting).
