If you’re looking for a place where you can spend some time sitting back enjoying good food & drinks, then we have your spot. Craft Breww City in Farmington, Michigan has 40 rotating beers on tap, over 100 bottled beers and a deliciously extensive menu.
Recently, we created a video showing you how to make a Bloody Mary even better…by using all Michigan products! But there were a few parts we left out. Just for laughs – we thought we would share alllllllll of the bloopers we made while shooting THIS video.
With the recent influx of restaurants in Detroit, it is important to not forget about the spots that have been around for a bit as it can be a difficult task to decide where to dine. We all go out to eat for the food, however easy access, a great environment and impeccable service all just adds to the experience making it worth going back for more. Chick in the Mitt is always thinking of our readers as we try new spots and we are anxious and thrilled to tell you all about this one. The talent of the Culinary and Front of the House team at Iridescence in Motor City Casino Hotel stands out as they share their love for food with their guests.
During my last visit to the Fisher Theatre, I happen to come across Stella Good Coffee. As I was waiting for the musical to start, I was in dire need of a caffeine fix. So I popped in to order a latte, thinking Stella was going to be your typical coffee shop. But then I learned that not only does Stella serve up a delicious drink but their shop has as much history and character as the rest of the Fisher Building!
Don’t forget, every month we will be rounding up our favorite Michigan based businesses and letting you know what’s going on around our state. Thanks for joining us on our journey as we eat, drink, shop and volunteer our way through the Mitt.

The term “craft cocktail” has been popping up on menus all over the place. To call a drink craft, it simply means that every element is tailored specifically to that cocktail – down to the type of glass and custom ice cubes. Though the craft cocktail craze seems to be spreading like wildfire recently – Sugar House has been dedicated to serving thirsty Detroiters with their unique drink creations since 2011 and boy does it show.
