Taste/Quality: 3.5 out of 5 bites

The third addition to the Inlaws Hospitality group (Green Dot Stables and Johnny Noodle King) is Detroit’s Huron Room. We are coming up on the 1 year anniversary of the restaurant (doors opened Mother’s Day 2016), so I thought it was a good time to feature the Great Lakes inspired joint. Expect to find a new and improved menu full of creative seafood dishes (crab louie salad, lobster and crab nachos), burgers, and some serious comfort food (Pot Roast, City Chicken, BLT). I love that Huron Room offers Michigan made beer and wine, as well as liquor for their craft cocktails. At one point, their menus were actually printed on pieces of thin wood that smelled amazing.

Clobster Stadium Nachos: Crab, lobster, cheese sauce, house pepper, chives. A nice combo of huge chunks of rich seafood, spicy peppers, and creamy, salty cheese sauce. The chips came out piping hot, extra thick and crunchy. You could tell they were house made. The perfect tool for scooping the delicious toppings into my mouth. A very nice spin on classic nachos.

Hush Puppies: pimento cheese, house peppers, chives. I am a sucker for hush puppies so when I found these on the menu I was ecstatic. The crispy cornmeal crust was golden brown and filled with a creamy, spicy filling. The sauce was so delicious that I found myself ladling it in my mouth with my fork. I was sweet, creamy, and added a coolness to the spicy peppers. You can’t beat it for $6!

Fish Sandwich (special): Cod burger topped with lettuce, red onion, and tomato. The fish was juicy, but this sandwich wasn’t my favorite. It was good, but I would’ve liked a little more seasoning and spice. I did like that this was light and didn’t leave me feeling heavy like most burgers do.

This Great Lakes space decided to revamp their menu a couple months ago and take a different spin on things. Now you can find more than just seafood as well as lower prices. Service is always good and they offer happy hour and a brunch menu (featuring Corn Beef Hash and a Monte Crisco). If  you haven’t tried Huron Room, stop in and see for yourself.

Chili Cook Off!

Today on the Bite Tonight: Chili Cook off and lunch from Red Crown.

This past week I participated in the first annual Chili Cook off at work in order to celebrate Fall. It was a great experience and I can’t wait to do it again next year. My favorite part was getting to taste all the different recipes and concoctions. Although my entry didn’t win, it was still fun.

Killer Nachos made with my chili!

While judging took place, we indulged in lunch from Red Crown, Grosse Pointe, MI.

Ribs, braised greens, mac and cheese, pulled pork, corn bread, and 3 different delicious sauces. My favorite was the signature sauce. The mac and cheese was on point, the pulled pork and ribs were super tender and flavorful. The cornbread was sweet and delicious.
