He Ate, She Ate

Asia's Finest

by Mark Nixon and Gabrielle Johnson
Garden of brothy delights Let’s begin on an upbeat note. There is some fine cooking going on in Asia’s Finest restaurant in South Lansing. The servers flash sincere looking smiles as you enter and leave. They are gracious when folks like me butcher familiar Thai and Vietnames...

He Ate, She Ate

Pizzano's offers 'pub grub' and beyond

by Mark Nixon and Gabrielle Johnson
Blue collar charm Standing in Piazzano’s parking lot, I looked across Grand River Avenue at a darkened, silent lumber yard. It struck me that Piazzano’s is like several other Lansing restaurants — Art’s Bar, DeLuca’s and Harry’s Place come to m...

Perpetual harvest

Lansing farmers markets offer fresh food year-round

by Ty Forquer
When there is snow on the ground and ice on the roads, not many people are thinking about fresh vegetables. A growing number of Lansing-area farmers markets, however, are providing customers with a place to pick up locally produced foods through the winter months. The Allan Street Farmers Market takes over the Allan Neighborhood Center parking lot during the summer months, but when the weather gets colder the vendors move indoors for the Allan Market Place.

Grape expectations

Picking the right wine for your relationship

by Justin King
February sucks. This is irrefutable; the pounding winter sucks your life away. Ronnie James Dio once sang, “The vision never dies, life’s a never ending wheel.” February is the coldest, most depressing wheel you’re ever going to encounter, so it makes good sense to put a romantic holiday right in the middle of it.

She ate: Winter flavors wow

by Gabrielle Johnson
The State Room wasn’t one of those restaurants that I thought was cool when I was growing up in Lansing. When my friends and I spent our high school allowances on fancy dinners before prom, we headed to Beggar’s Banquet, Mountain Jack’s or the Golden Rose. The State Room...

He ate: Tripping over superlatives

by Mark Nixon
The sign out front — Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center — does not exactly scream “Great food inside!” It may be one reason the State Room, on the western edge of the Michigan State University campus, can be an overlooked star in Greater Lansing’s culinary constellation.

Wine and dine

Matching vino with local Mexican cuisine

by Justin King
Beer and burritos are truth. There’s something magical about annihilating a fat chimichanga while throwing back some Bohemia pilsners. This simple and glorious decadence that has proven to resolve 70 percent of roommate disputes involving unwashed dishes and friends who sleep on the couch.

She ate: Top five

by Gabrielle Johnson
In 2014, my favorite local restaurants remained my favorites, including Tavern 109 in Williamston, the State Room in East Lansing, and Maru in Okemos. Of course, I added more to my list, but I also found some off-the-beaten-path new places for favorite sustenance.

He ate:´More, please´

by Mark Nixon
If I’m to pick an area restaurant of the year, I’ll choose one that still has a pulse (hats off for you, Fork in the Road). In fact, latest reports tell me that the Naing Family Restaurant on Lansing’s south side is thriving. That’s as good a way to start the 2015 dining scene as anything I can imagine.

Sultan's delivers authentic Middle Eastern Dining experience

by Mark Nixon and Gabrielle Johnson
It’s safe to say you can’t fully appreciate a culture until you can appreciate its cuisine. My appreciation of Middle Eastern cuisine is a work in progress.
