Some Berkeley foodie friends are moving to Ann Arbor and I want to put together some gift certificates and food recs for them. I'm leaning towards Eve for dinner, although I'm open to being persuaded otherwise. If you've been to Eve, though, is $100 for two reasonable? Should I go higher?
I would also like to include a good grocery store or gourmet food place. I've found a lot of strong opinions for and against Zingerman's, so perhaps another bakery? Cheeseshop? (Yes, Berkeley makes us weak and unprepared for most of the US. Help me soften the blow...) Perhaps a kitchenware shop? Is there a good place to get knives sharpened, for example?
