Need Detroit suburb late night good stuff--not burgers!

boagman | May 14, 2008 01:45 PM

So I get done working out last night and head off to Pi's Thai Cuisine in Sterling Heights, only to find, at 8:45PM, that Pi's currently in the hospital and the place is closed for the week. At this point, it's too late to go to the Hazel Park location. Here's where my mistake came into play: I then went to Target to do a bit of personal shopping, and came out still hungry, obviously. I then headed to Red, Hot, and Blue on Van Dyke, and they were out of their potato salad! NUTS!

So, it's now 10PM, and I was already at Redcoat Tavern earlier in the week. I wracked my brain trying to think of late night chow choices that *didn't* involve burgers and/or standard bar fare, and could think of any. I honestly ended up going to *McDonald's*. That's how eye-roll-inducingly-bad things were...I was *that* hungry.

So, in the suburbs, after 10PM, where should we go? I need suggestions. I don't mind going to a bar if the food warrants it, but the food *must* be worthy if I'm to endure a smokefest that late at night.
