Best Cajun: Gator Jake's

36863 Van Dyke Ave., Sterling Heights; 586-983-3700 Gator Jake's makes for a fine place to enjoy a drink and escape the cold during the wintertime, but the bar's Creole-inspired dishes, coupled with the environment filled with yellows and reds, can make you feel like you're nowhere near the state of Michigan. Give the blackened tuna salad a shot next time you're in.
