A world of restaurants
Old friends were visiting Ann Arbor from a small town in Europe, and we were trying to decide where to go out to eat. I would have suggested some of the newish cosmopolitan places downtown for tapas, pizza, or steaks, but I realized we had the chance to offer a world of cuisine.
We are truly fortunate to be able to take for granted Asian restaurants with fresh ingredients and fresh approaches to traditional foods, Latin American cuisine that's as interesting to look at as it is to eat, and seafood places that take pains to offer both fresh fish flown in and local Great Lakes whitefish, walleye, and trout.
What's more, the local sourcing movement has caught on big time here. In fact, that's what we settled on: a favorite local place serving tomatoes grown on the edge of town, cheese crafted a stone's throw away, several types of beer from Michigan breweries, and real pride in the fresh tastes of our region.
Not many mid-size cities in America boast such bounty. AnnArborObserver.com has both restaurant listings and reviews to browse if you're in search of ideas. So enjoy taking your guests--and yourself--out for some quality eats.
