THE MASTERS RESTAURANT

This replica of the clubhouse at Augusta National Golf Club, the home of the Masters tournament, is a high-ceilinged space awash in appropriate memorabilia with seating on the balcony and main floor. The menu is resolutely American, from broiled or char-grilled fish and seafood to prime rib of beef and lamb chops, with just a slight touch of Greek from owners Koula and Harry Andreopolous, who took over from the founder in 1993.

1775 E. 13 Mile Rd., Madison Heights; 248-588-0915, themastersrestaurant.com. L & D daily. $20 H

 

STEVE’S BACKROOM

The original Backroom was truly that. Its successor, on St. Clair Shores’ Nautical Mile, is considerably larger, with a Mediterranean-muraled dining room, a retail market, and a wood-paneled cocktail lounge. The extensive menu offers Lebanese staples from hummus and baba ghannouj to shish kabob and kafta and chicken and lamb shawarma — many available in half portions — as well as fresh pita pulled from the in-view oven.
