Avalon is relatively new to downtown A2, but they have been a Detroit staple for many years. The food and ambience are excellent. They’ve got jazz bands playing some nights. Famous for the breads (Motown Multigrain is my favorite.) The food is organic, healthy, tasty. Not too expensive.

Excellent food. One big advantage is that there’s easy parking. Make a reservation. You will likely need it. Delicious brunch, but also great lunch/dinner options. Personal fave: sweet potato fries.

Lunch/Dinner

Best sandwiches in town, but if you are from New York, you’ll still say, “What’s so special?” Even though they have expanded, you can still expect a line. Their coffee (Roadhouse Joe), bread (sourdough!) and just about everything else is terrific, if you want to take something home. Personal sandwich faves are the Georgia Reuban, Abra’s Nutty Yardbird, & Thad’s Yes I Can!

Definitely make a reservation. Knights on Dexter is the place where older townies go (and you can just walk over!) Great, big, strong drinks, great meat, and great prices. Friendly servers who know their business. It’s a secret Ann Arbor institution. The Liberty branch is close to campus. A bit hipper. Still has the great drinks and great prices, w/ a slightly different menu.

Great pizza and Italian-style small plates. The owner/chef has gotten a lot of buzz. There is also a lot of buzz in the restaurant. Very noisy, but excellent food and fun. Personal fave: pickled tomato appetizer. This is one of our go-to date-night spots.

Burgers

Closed Sundays. No reservations. (Across the street from the Gandy Dancer, which is not on this list because of the very high prices. Still, it’s been in Ann Arbor forever.) Same owners as Red Hawk. Great burgers; great prices. This is the townie version of Red Hawk, with TVs tuned to sports. It’s a pub kind of place.

They offer a wider menu, but are known for their pizza. Downtown A2 has a cute atmosphere for in-person dining, but there is a location on Stadium that is closer to the house if you want carryout or delivery.

A 20-minute drive west of town in Chelsea. Superb fish, steaks, salads, etc. Drinks are delicious and desserts are outstanding. I think they take call ahead seating. They definitely take reservations for groups of 6 or more.
