Deals on Meals: A2 Restaurant Week A Critic’s List

. June 2, 2014.

On June 22, Ann Arbor Restaurant Week returns to over 50 of the city’s finest eateries, and you’re probably eying the list, wondering which three-course $28 dinner specials and  two-for-one $15 lunches to order. Broken down by category, here’s what I’ll be going for. 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), Vellum (metropolitan swank meets Midwest comfort).

Day Dining

The Lunch Room (vegan and gluten-free friendly), Prickly Pear Cafe (plenty of fresh salads and southwest-y options), Silvio’s Organic Pizza (fancy pizza, always a hit).

Just Cuz

Blue Tractor BBQ & Brewery (um… BBQ and beer? Just a good idea), Jolly Pumpkin Cafe & Brewery (Main Street’s gastropublican hangout), Grizzly Peak (for solid food in a pub-y setting), Frita Batidos (filling, vibey, and of course, boozy milkshakes!).
      

A2 Restaurant Week, Sunday, June 22 – Friday, June 27. Downtown Ann Arbor. 734-668-7112. For a full list of participating restaurants visit annarborrestaurantweek.com
