A Few Tasty Morsels I’ve Eaten Lately
March 14, 2016
Had lovely meals in Michigan; who knew there was such an interesting restaurant scene there?
The salad above was at Malia in Battle Creek – a stunningly ambitious restaurant with some of the sweetest service I’ve encountered lately.
The meal began with this burrata with fried basil leaves, pesto and balsamic, and then went on to this enormous – and delicious – tomato pasta.
There was also this: bacon Nutella brownie. Not my thing – but extraordinarily intense.
In Detroit I ate at Antietam. Again, serious ambition, incredibly kind service. The meal began with this beet tart topped with caramelized goat cheese,
and a really fine beef tartare:
And then went on to this gorgeously roasted piece of whitefish with fried sage:
Tomorrow I’ll post some of the delicious food I ate at La Sirena – which has to be New York’s most spectacular new space. Here’s a little teaser: the cacio e pepe toasts they hand out with the drinks. Brilliant idea!

Thanks for always sending such lovely photos and heavenly descriptions of the food you encounter, Ruth. I look forward to your daily emails to live (or pretend to eat) vicariously through you! I live on a mountain in Northern New Jersey, so I don’t get too many opportunities for sophisticated dining.
Love Malia in Battle Creek, MI! Thanks for the positive review.
