HERB'd started in the summer of 2016, to spotlight the best vegetarian cuisine in Detroit and perpetuate the TONIC & JUICE mission.
Lady K and I have been meditating for some time now on how best to approach one of Detroit’s newest restaurant installations, The Apparatus Room, held within the Detroit Foundation Hotel. When evaluating places like this, one must take into account who or what are the driving forces behind the food, drinks and design. K and I have…Read more The Apparatus Room | This is Not a Bad Review
An afternoon at Chartreuse Kitchen & Cocktails last week was again outstanding. Lady K, my dining aficionado, and I frequently find ourselves in the mood for something light whilst we adventure around the city – and this little emerald has certainly kept itself at the front of the pack. As it gets hotter, I’ve been…Read more CHARTREUSE | A Viridescent Dancing Flower

In the past I’ve seen a lot of articles talk about the significance…Read more LE PETIT ZINC, ON Y VA!
The Farmer's Hand, a new bodega and grocer, on the corner of Bagley and Trumbull, literally is everything I could ever want. Lady K and I recently stopped in - in hopes to snag one of the tables and have ourselves a lazy lunch. This place, their staff and their food are all nothing short of…Read more THE FARMER’S HAND, DOES IT RIGHT
