Best New Restaurant (open less than 2 years); Best Restaurant to Spend Less Than $50 in Oakland County 

CAYA Smokehouse; 1403 S. Commerce Rd., Walled Lake; 248-438-6741

“CAYA” stands for “come as you are,” an apt summary of the upscale casual trend dominating the local dining scene these days. The unassuming restaurant combines barbecue’s simplicity with the exacting palate of an experienced chef, combining ingredients available in the local area and ideas from cuisines the world over to produce honest and delicious food. The cooks clearly respect the food they’re cooking, and do their utmost to present it as ideally and flavorfully as possible.

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