Praise us or pan us, but just put it down in words. Bravos or boos, we want to hear from you.



Detroit has the most amazing old homes. Too bad so many are vacant. I can only imagine Detroit in its heyday. Good to read about Reclaim Detroit (“Deconstructing Detroit,” May 2014).

— Joel Guldner via Facebook

// Racket. Blight Busters earmarks the properties, Reclaim strips the valuables and resells them to yuppies, then Rock recoups the properties. The prostitution of Detroit.

Excellent article (“Bourbon is Back,” May 2014). Well done! Cheers! Stop down to NOLA and we’ll toast one another!

— The Bourboneer (a Facebook page/guide to enjoying the experience of New Orleans), via Facebook

// If it’s not from Kentucky how can it be called bourbon? Anything outside of Bourbon County is just considered whiskey. Same as anything not from Portugal cannot be called a Port.

Wednesday date night and we ate at Trattoria Da Luigi (“Honest and Well Done,” April 2014). Delicious meal, great service, a true neighborhood gem. Also enjoyed the live music. We’ll be back!

—Rachelle L. Cherkasov, via Facebook

// So proud of my father’s restaurant. This review really sums up the restaurant, as well as my father. No pretentious bulls***, just an honest and well-done meal!

Diamond Jim Brady’s still does the occasional roadhouse-style frog legs (“When Frogs Were King,” May 2014) on the weekends and they are delicious!

— Sharon Juergens Korn via Facebook

(EDITOR'S NOTE: We’ve also seen them on the menu at places including Peabody’s in Birmingham and Scotty Simpson’s Fish & Chips in Detroit’s Brightmoor neighborhood.)



I’ve noticed that on occasion you cast your restaurant net beyond the metro area. In the hinterlands of Imlay City stands The Mulefoot Gastropub — a shining example of all you could want in a joyous dining experience. Matt and Mike Romine (identical twins) grow, shop, and cook local. It is totally unpretentious and welcoming. Check them out (themulefoot.com).
