Northern Michigan Restaurants: Mario Batali joined up with four Up North food devotees to divugle 41 menu offerings in our Best Eats of 2013. Here are Mario's 8 picks of the pack:
Hansen Foods // 91 West Fourth Street, Suttons Bay // 231.271.4280
Flash the secret handshake at Hansen’s back deli counter and you might score a few of Miguel’s famous lunch enchiladas. Braised chicken or pork. Sassy enchilada sauce. Muy bueno.
Village Cheese Shanty // 199 River Street, Leland // 231.256.9141
Sliced chicken breast, fresh goat cheese, lettuce, tomato and pesto mayonnaise. Mario likes it on the Cheese Shanty’s salty and proprietary pretzel bread.
Frenchies Famous // 619 Randolph Street, Traverse City // 231.944.1228
Two of the world’s great proteins, pastrami and eggs, harmonize in an airy French omelet infused with New York attitude.
Glazed Cake Doughnut
Barb’s Bakery // 112 North Mill Street, Northport // 231.386.5851
Basic human happiness can always be found in a good doughnut, and Barb’s is as good as anybody’s. Moist, cakey batter with a crisp exterior and sweet sugar glaze.
