Restaurant Week is perhaps one of the only times we make an effort to go out for lunch. Looking at the Restaurant Week menu, Gratzi’s lunch and dinner options aren’t all that different, except lunch is nearly half the price. Having really enjoyed our time at the newest Mainstreet Ventures restaurant, Mezzevino, we decided to go visit some of its older siblings. I really love the setting – Gratzi’s space used to be the Orpheum Theater, and it’s really quite grand.
NeoPapalis has great reviews on Yelp, a 4.5, and so I was really excited to try them out. While I love the design and concept of customizable pizzas, I was terribly disappointed in the Chicken BBQ on a Bianca base (Herb-Butter base, Asiago and Mozzarella Cheese, Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Honey) that we got. It was really tasteless, barely having any barbecue flavor to it. Although the ingredients seemed fresh, the whole pizza was just really bland.
I did a quick Snapshot post on Frita Batidos back when I first came to Ann Arbor, but despite frequenting it quite often throughout the years I’ve lived here, I somehow never dedicated a full photo shoot to it. Feeling like this was much overdue, Kevin and I stopped by for a delicious lunch featuring their summer special, an aromatic pulled pork with tropical cole slaw and chili mayo. (more…)
The last time we went to Vellum was back around when it first opened. I remember being impressed with how knowledgeable and articulate our waiter was, but not so much with the food. I thought it’d be worth trying them again during Restaurant Week. (more…)
I was going through some old photos and noticed I never posted these from a trip I took to Greece a few years ago. Truth be told, there’s not a lot of food because I was more interested in the cats and dogs and ancient structures everywhere! I hope you still enjoy these photos! (more…)
