March’s clue–“an ‘eye’ nearby”–spurred Kathy Babcock to think of See Eyeware on State Street; it was Bennett Optometry on Main for Beth Simon. But the “eye” in this case is more concrete–well, brick, actually–appearing as an architectural motif in the building adjacent to February’s feature. “I have since realized,” writes Babcock, “that the eye was nearby Vogel’s.”
It’s “above the Logan restaurant,” writes Bea Clements of Ann Arbor, “at 115 W. Washington St.,” adds Joe Clements of Belleville.
Logan’s distinctive building, built in the 1890s, has been home to several businesses including a grocery store, tea shop, shoemaker, and several taverns, the most famous of which, the Flame Bar, was in business from the ’40s to the mid-’90s. Logan arrived in 2004. Earning a spot on Zagat’s Top Ten list three years in a row for its “New American” cuisine, Logan, named after the chef’s son, has built a loyal following. “Sigh,” writes Logan aficionada Pamela Kittel of her frequent patronage, “one more reason my dissertation isn’t finished.”
We received ten entries in March, eight of which were correct. Kathy Babcock, our drawing winner, will take her $25 gift certificate to Great Harvest Bread Company.
