Ann Arbor Restaurant Week

. December 31, 2014.

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).
