Anita's Kitchen


Published:

Spring comes to this popular Ferndale spot earlier than almost anywhere else. The big covered patio fills up even when temperatures are less than tropical. The 50-seat exterior space doubles the size of the restaurant run by Jennifer and Joe Wegrzyn, daughter and son-in-law of founders Anita and Pierre Farah. Although the menu is predominantly Middle Eastern, there’s one dish that departs. Joe’s “not so Buffalo” Chicken Wings, as they’re called, regularly fly out of the kitchen. With a sneak-up spiciness and feta dressing for dipping, they’re among the best in town. The secret? Joe’s from Buffalo, N.Y. 22651 Woodward (south of Nine Mile Road), Ferndale; 248-548-0680. L & D daily.
