Souped-up kitchen

Lansing's Soup Spoon Café has the recipe for success

by Joe Torok
A $1 billion-endowed research university, a Level I trauma hospital, and the hubs of state and city politics sit along the hungry stretch of Michigan Avenue near downtown Lansing. It's a corridor begging for higher caliber eateries like the Soup Spoon Café, a great, unpretentious little dining spot that successfully serves up both Midwestern charm and cosmopolitan panache.

30 rocks

Dessert is a high point for new dance club/restaurant

by Joe Torok
Bar 30, which is Eastwood Towne Center's newest addition, has the look and feel of a dance club, with its metallic decor, amoeba-patterned chairs and dance floor flanked by a fully stocked bar. While I'm sure there’s plenty of eye candy on that dance floor in the wee hours, I went for lunch looking to be impressed with what showed up on the plate.

Flaming Moe's

Trendy Tex-Mex chain looks better than it tastes

by Joe Torok
Moe's Southwest Grill sounds like it could be from an episode of "The Simpsons," featuring the show's longtime bartender attempting to cash in on patrons clamoring for Tex-Mex. Instead, it's an Atlanta-born restaurant franchise that recently arrived on the East Lansing food corridor across from Michigan State University, serving up tacos, burritos and fajitas.

Corned beef quest

Food Fight team takes on deli favorite

by
The northwest suburbs of Detroit are home to a large Jewish population and (un-coincidentally) some of the state's finest delicatessens. Many mid-Michiganders who are native to the region still dream of the New York-style bagels, blintzes and marbled corned beef that are all now an hour's drive away.

A sushi love affair

Sansu seduces diners with unique menu, dining room

by Joe Torok
There's a restaurant in town I treat as a kind of secret lover: I arrange a visit only when circumstances allow, and our times together are infrequent, intimate and always satisfying.
