I'm overnighting soon in the Ypsilanti area and will have a dinner time or two available. I used to live in Ann Arbor and might well stop by there, but I'm actually thinking more of exploring some areas like Ypsi, Plymouth, Canton and even the Dearborn area, which I have had less exposure to. If you're itching to suggest a further destination, maybe indicate driving time from Ypsi area? (I don't really know where most suburbs actually are off the top of my head, or how far it is to get to them.)
Will have adventurous 10-year old son along--he'll eat anything, although toning down the real spicy stuff. We'd be interested in most any casual great food, ethnic (Mexi, Middle Eastern, Thai, etc.) or more mainstream fare (trip-worthy pizza, somewhere with amazing soups or sandwiches, etc.).
Thanks for any ideas!
