Old Miami

    Feeling nostalgic for the days of drinking beer in your buddy’s basement or raising a glass around the fire at a backyard blowout? Head to the Old Miami, where the outdoor space feels like the backyard of a really rockin’ neighbor. Just don’t go looking for creative cuisine or craft brews. The Old Miami is strictly old-school, right down to the cans of beer. (Photo via IG user @mrpartypat)

One-Eyed Betty’s
    One-Eyed Betty's has the hands-down most outrageous beer selection in Ferdale with 47 beers on tap and more than the proverbial 100 bottles. But it’s not just about quantity: It’s a darn good selection, constantly rotating, and seemingly churning up offbeat picks, such as German Hobo, a malt liquor brewed out near Lansing, or Hidden Effect, a barley wine from Plymouth. Then there’s the food menu, with choices rich enough to become almost a caricature of bar food — given such dishes as “beer cheese soup” and “bacon with a side of bacon.”

Kuzzo's Chicken & Waffles
    19345 Livernois Ave., Detroit; 313-861-0229
    It didn't take long for the lines to form once Kuzzo's opened its doors. The irresistible comfort food combo — chicken and waffles — is obviously the main draw, and Kuzzo's is the latest in Detroit to try its hand at the dish. But it also offers up a host of other soul food staples. The early raves have held up and momentum has remained strong, which is a solid test of whether a restaurant is merely trendy or built for longevity. MT file photo.
