Best Creative Use of Strip Mall Location 

Cafe ML; 3607 W. Maple, Bloomfield Twp.; 248-642-4000;

To convert an old Blockbuster is one thing; to set up tables outside a strip-mall spot and make them the place the customers definitely want to sit — that takes moxie. Bill Roberts’ outside tables are surrounded by tall planters that permit the happy diner to see only treetops and blue sky, no intrusion of harsh motoring-public reality. Heated floors and overhead heaters too. And hey, you don’t have to pay to park.

(Sorry, no information is currently available for other years in this same award category.)
