Restaurants in Michigan

Really, there are two Michigans: the Upper Peninsula, a rugged natural landscape that is home to the savory meat pie known as a pasty (say pass-tee), as well as to superb Lake Superior seafood; and the southern part of the state, aka “mitten” (shapewise). Down here you will find roadside produce stands throughout the fertile farmland as well as drop-dead delicious pies made from locally grown cherries and apples. Michigan’s big cities are something else altogether: polyglot places rich with raffish hot dog stands and burger joints as well as ethnic eateries from around the world. The University of Michigan’s presence makes Ann Arbor a notably good place to eat, whether world-class sliders, sophisticated foreign fare, or bakeries and delis that are second-to-none.
