Lamb chops at Bar Pigalle in Detroit’s Brush Park

2915 John R Rd., Detroit; 313-497-9200; barpigalle.com


On this “playful French” menu — meaning Day-twah French, with license to invent — a star on the star-studded meat-centric menu is two umami-laden lamb chops with a crisp exterior plus a tenderloin wrapped in Savoy cabbage. They come with ratatouille and a creamy sauce made with sweet piquillo peppers. As a bonus, the French wines are affordable and there is no snooty-French-waiter vibe at all. (Read more in our review.) —Jane Slaughter

The Duggan administration’s contract with Transdev

Detroit City Council was placed with an impossible decision — renew a contract with Transdev, the city’s subpar paratransit service, or leave the city’s disabled residents without free transportation. Many members of the disability community were against a renewed contract with Transdev, leading to council to reject it before a new operator could be secured. Mayor Mike Duggan initially said the city would have no choice but to reduce paratransit service by 70% in 2023, until the Federal Transit Administration said Detroit was violating federal law by failing to fully fund rides for disabled residents. To avoid federal oversight, Duggan then used his emergency powers to set up temporary paratransit services through four different companies while the city seeks bids for a permanent provider. He also lambasted the council, calling them “dysfunctional,” but many blind Detroiters were glad for Transdev to get the boot, and told horror stories of dealing with its chronically late drivers who frequently dropped them off at the wrong locations. (The U.S. Dept. of Justice is investigating possible civil rights violations.) The council actually listened to residents for a change, but it left Detroit in a terribly awkward position. —Randiah Camille Green
