Best Brussels Sprouts: Showdown 

Cafe ML; 3607 W. Maple, Bloomfield Twp.; 248-642-4000; cafeml.com; Luxe Bar & Grill; 115 Kercheval Ave., Grosse Pointe Farms; 313-924-5459; luxebarandgrill.com; Rock City Eatery; 11411 Joseph Campau, Hamtramck; 248-633-3072

The chefs at both Luxe and ML produce a delicate, feather-light version of Brussels sprouts, caught at just the right moment between browned and burnt and retaining a complex, earthy flavor. ML gets a slight nod because theirs are deconstructed into single spherical layers and dressed with sriracha, agave and lime, while Luxe’s throws in unnecessary dried cherries. Rock City Eatery takes a different direction, roasting the sprouts soft and solid rather than crisp and wispy, and combining them with peanuts, cherry tomatoes, basil and something hot. The effect is semi-Chinese, and good enough to make the podium if not the gold.
