Many thanks for all the help from your earlier responses - I extended my stay since there was so much to eat!
On the itinerary:
Parmenters for cider, Steve's Deli ( Bloomfield Hills), Five Lakes Grill (Milford)
For Toledo day: Schmuckers for breakfast, Revolver (Findlay) for dinner
Cedar Lands (Dearborn)
Cantoro's Italian Market for supplies (hotel has kitchenette)
On the short list:
for Ann Arbor day (probably a Sunday) Metzgers and perhaps a peek at Zimmermans
Livonia area (late dinners): Jim Brady's, Zinc, Shangri-La, Steve & Rocky's
Fish & Chips: Scotty Simpson's, Hope's or Jesse's ??? Which one, why?
Detroit excursions: Polish Village Cafe or ...
Might be able to do American Harvest for dinner
Might be meeting at Vinotec Bar. Is food good, or should I eat before/after?
Still searching for:
Late day breakfast offerings around Novi/Livonia
Had read of an amazing shop specializing in Pirogies, lost the info. Any ideas?
Open to fine-tuning input. Realize I'm skipping Bar-B-Q & Mexican, but had to make some tough choices and I have frequent access to very good sources of these at home.
This makes me realize I should have named myself "have fork, will travel"!
Thanks for your time and input.
