Centaur Bar

After celebrating RL Concetti’s (Detroit Interior Design and Consultation) soft opening of their Midtown spot and stopping by Dangerously Delicious Pies (pictured below) for some grub, the girls and I decided to continue the festivities at Centaur Bar. Centaur Bar is located Downtown Detroit on Park Ave within walking distance from Comerica Park and the Filmore. Centaur is great if you want small plates and a killer drink. See how they ranked.

Dirty Martini: Grey Goose. Exactly how a martini should taste. Perfect amount of dirty. These were dangerous and I could’ve had 5. Brandon makes the best martinis!


Cheese & Fruit: Sampling of imported cheeses , crackers, and seasonal fruit. Nice light snack. The fruit was fresh and the cheese was delicious.


Bacon Wrapped Dates: stuffed with gorgonzola and served warm. Decadent! Perfect bite of bacon, date, and gorgonzola. The bacon was crispy and went well with the creamy, bite of the gorgonzola. The date added a sweetness that complimented the salty and the balsamic reduction was delicious. Perfect with a martini!


So proud of @RLConcetti. I can’t wait to see what you ladies have in store for 2017! Thanks for a great night on the town, girls! Let’s do it again soon ❤

Kenny’s Wood Fired Grill

The Bite Tonight’s next stop is to Kenny’s Wood Fired Grill located in Addison, TX.

With a classy, yet warm, atmosphere, Kenny’s is meant to have the feel of a 1940’s Chicago chophouse. The dining room is dimly lit adding a sexy, swanky style, but the overall vibe is very relaxed. Kenny’s menu consists of American classics with a funky upscale twist. Enjoy appetizers such as Mama Foo’s Chinese Meatballs and entrees like the U-10 Bacon Wrapped Shrimp with avocado crema, chipotle cream, smoked jalapeno, and corn salsa. With Grey Goose on tap, what else could you ask for? See how they ranked.

We started off the meal with the most amazing thing I have ever encountered…

The Popover: Flaky, buttery, and airy outside, with a doughy and soft inside. Words cannot describe what this tasted like. If you get the opportunity to try one, do it! It will change your life. Just look at this beauty!


Grey Goose on tap: Served at an icy cold 28 degrees, there isn’t any other way to enjoy Grey Goose. The best past was that our server switched out my brother’s martini glass for a chilled one every few minutes.

Tenderloin Crostini: Sliced filet, béarnaise, demi glace. The tenderloin was tender and cooked perfectly to a medium. The sauce was slightly salty and didn’t kill the texture of the crostini. I really enjoyed how the crostini held it’s crunch. Delicious!

My choice

Chicken: Sun-dried tomato, basil pesto, artichoke, mushroom, walnuts, goat cheese. My taste buds were all over the place! The artichokes were slightly sour, but paired well with the creamy, tangy goat cheese, and nutty, warm walnuts. The chicken was delicate and juicy. The basil pesto and sun-dried tomato really brightened up the dish.

Side: Bubbie’s Potato Cake: Cheddar, smoked bacon, lemon, dill sour cream. Crispy, smoky, and cheesy. The lemon, dill sour cream really cooled down this potato side.

Jay’s choice

Beef Short Rib: Five hour braise, port demi, tobasco fried onions. The short ribs were so tender that as soon as the fork hit them, they just fell apart. The sauce was sweet and smoky, perfect for ribs. The fried onions were light, but still offered that delicious onion ring flavor that everyone loves.

The special: Chicken Fried Steak: Topped with bacon and served with mashed potatoes and a creamy horseradish dipping sauce. The crispy breading was delicious, the tender, juicy steak was perfectly seasoned and melted in your mouth like butter. The bacon was salty, sweet, smoky and cooked perfectly to a crisp. The mashed potatoes were creamy and the horseradish cream sauce was the perfect compliment to the rich steak.

Side: Jeff’s Really Good Creamed Corn: OMG! Creamy with a hint of heat. This was so delicious that we asked our server what the spice was and he gave us the recipe! Seriously?! What restaurant would just hand over their recipe? One that is super confident in the quality of their dishes.

Key Lime Pie: We absolutely didn’t have room for dessert, but didn’t want to miss out. So we got a slice to go. Creamy and thick with a nice punch of real lime.

Kenny’s is awesome because the owner has successfully opened three other restaurants as part of the group: Kenny’s Burger Joint (wood grilled burgers), Kenny’s Italian Kitchen, and Kenny’s Smoke House all in Texas. Between the four places, you are sure to find one that suits your taste buds. The service was amazing! It was just honest and effortless. We could tell that our server, Richard really enjoyed waiting on us. He went above and beyond, but it gave me the impression that this was just how things were done at Kenny’s. The fact that our service printed off the owner and chef’s creamed corn recipe and even gave us his personal email for questions really took customer service to a whole new level. The quality and taste of the food was one of the best I’ve ever experienced. That made this dinner the favorite of the trip. I really liked that Kenny’s has an upscale atmosphere without having super expensive or overwhelming prices. Every single restaurant can learn a lot from Kenny’s! Experience any one of their restaurants as soon as possible.

Now before you judge a book by it’s cover, just know that I didn’t drink all these martinis alone. My good friend, Michelle and her sister, Nicole were in town, so Nastassia and I met them for a night of catching up.

DD Dirty Dog: Nastassia’s pick. Smirnoff Vodka, Olive juice, and olives. Salty, strong, and classic.

Banana Split: Nastassia’s 1st pick that she didn’t care for. Vodka, Tequila Rose , Creme De Banana, Creme De Cocoa. Nice flavor, but really sweet and heavy. Great for banana fans!

Bellitini: My pick. Vodka, Peach Liqueur, Champagne. Light, fruity with a hint of bubbly. Bellitini

Skittletini: Nicole’s pick. Vodka, Razzmatazz, Peach tree Liqueur, Triple Sec, Orange and Cranberry juice. Tasted just like a skittle and not booze. Fruity and sweet.


Mint Chocolate Chip: Michelle’s pick. Vanilla Vodka, Creme de Menthe, Irish Creme, Cream. Like a scoop of ice cream in a glass. Delicious, decadent, and rich.

What I liked about Gizzmos was that each martini was garnished beautifully. With a newly renovated interior, Gizzmos has live music and a great menu to suit any taste bud. The staff was friendly and it really seemed like our server wanted us to have a great experience, making conversation and offering her drink knowledge and recommendations. Even though I’ve lived Downriver all my life, this was my first visit to Gizzmos and it won’t be my last. No matter if you’re in the mood for a sophisticated cocktail or a beer and a small bite, stop in and check out Gizzmos.

Thanks for a wonderful evening, ladies! It was so great to see you guys.
