16. Marrow

    “Had an absolutely incredible experience at Marrow for our anniversary dinner. Menu has to be picked ahead of time, but you truly can't go wrong -- everything was fresh, unique, beautifully plated, and delicious. Our server was kind and attentive while also being careful to limit contact due to covid precautions. We sat on the back patio which had heaters and a fire going, and was a lovely setting for dinner. The tasting menu is well worth the price and we already want to return since the menu changes often! Marrow exceeded our expectations and made our anniversary dinner fun and memorable.” — Carolina R. on Yelp

Where to find Detroit artist Charles McGee’s bold works of art in Michigan

Charles McGee, a groundbreaking Black Detroit artist, died this week at age 96, but he lives on in the vibrant sculptures, murals,…

By Metro Times Staff

“Unity”
    28 W. Grand River Ave., Detroit
    In 2017, a towering 118-foot tall black-and-white mural designed by McGee was painted on the side of 28 W. Grand River Ave. in Detroit’s Capitol Park neighborhood. The painting, which incorporated representational elements like a snake and a bird, was realized by Kelly Golden and Jordan Zielke of the Golden Sign Co., and debuted alongside a sprawling retrospective exhibition of McGee’s work by Library Street Collective, spanning more than 70 years.

25. Detroit Street Filling Station
    300 Detroit St., Ann Arbor;734-224-8262; thelunchrooma2.com/detroit-street-filling-station 
    “I must admit, as a lifelong omnivore, I have always been skeptical about vegetarian restaurants as I have rarely found any earth shattering vegetarian dishes. But was pleasantly surprised when I came across the Power Up Bowl at the Detroit Street Filling Station! It was vegetarian, healthy, and more importantly (to me at least), super tasty! Would highly recommend this for your entree if you come by here for lunch or dinner.
    The buffalo cauliflower "wings" here are also pretty great. The Pad Thai is alright, not nearly as good as the Power Up bowl. The Power Up bowl is where it's at.” —Nancy C. on Yelp

King Rare and Used Books or literally any one of metro Detroit’s many independent bookstores that are keeping our brains fed during the pandemic? Remember, read responsibly.

    “Nice old world styled restaurant. And I must say has the best be Polish food around. The wait staff is great. They always check to make sure you have everything to keep you happy. And it's always packed!!!!  so order carry out if you don't mind dining out. It's just a little place. Get anything it is guaranteed to be good, I promise. City chicken, pierogies, stuffed cabbage like grandma used to make.... unless you're getting a combo have the person with you order something different and just share. Serving sizes are good and there will be more than enough to take home for leftovers! Try the dill pickle soup as well. Hope you enjoy this place as much as I do.” — Tiffany M. on Yelp
