Tomatoes APIZZA introduced their Neapolitan style pizza to Farmington Hills in 1998 and have received rave reviews ever since…and after my visit, it is VERY easy to see why.  Their pizza style may be different from what you are used to but I PROMISE you it’s worth trying. The flavorful, thin, chewy, crispy, slightly charred pie with fresh ingredients is beyond delicious and will keep you coming back for more!

Prior to walking into Terry’s Terrace, we had heard they were known for their seafood and beer, a combo that almost never disappoints. With 50 beers on tap and standards to please the snobbiest of beer snobs, finding something to drink here is definitely not an issue. The staff takes pride in making sure every beer that is poured has come from a quality keg, travels through clean lines, and has the perfect pressure and temperature. And the food! Well, the food is unexpectedly amazing, giving you the feeling you’re in an upscale restaurant with a laid back environment!

We took a look back at all of the amazing places in Michigan we were lucky enough to experience in 2015. All we can say is WOW – our state is PACKED with incredible places that delight our senses. So, we thought we would give you a quick snapshot of all the spots we visited in the past year.




Whether you are looking to find the perfect condiment to top off your sandwich or a dip to cover your pretzel in, we think we have found what could be called “Detroit’s Best Mustard”. JD’s Motown Mustard is thick, sweet, spicy and everything in between. I found myself trying it with everything that I could find. The best part is, this five ingredient, handmade mustard is a family recipe that has been around for generations and made right here in Metro-Detroit.

Put some JD's on it.
