Based on buzz from the metrotimes, Detroit News, and the Free Press, I drove 50 miles to try Town Tavern in Royal Oak. Once again, recieved average mediocre food. The local dining scene has been really disappointing. Love Royal Oak and the vibe of the town, but, this food might have deserved all the hype it's getting if it was 1992. Overpriced, overdone ideas from the kitchen. I tried Bastone a few months ago, and liked it alot. Cafe Habana was good too. Both offered more interesting menus at the right price point. My favorite restaurants in the area are Zingermans Roadhouse and The Common Grill in Chelsea, so don't get the perception that it's all about cost with me. I live in Canton, so you do need to travel if you want to have a meal somewhere other than a chain or Coney Island. I've relocated from the east coast and have really been missing good solid food since I got here.Any recommendations?
