Dominick's, known as one the best Summer spots in Ann Arbor, boasts an awesome outdoor patio to enjoy all Summer long. All the locals know that when Dominick's opens up, it's officially Summer!
When you walk in the door, grab a picnic table outside on the patio and jump in line with friends (you'll need a few extra hands to carry food and drinks back). The menu is written all over the walls as you wait in line, and every drink is served in giant pitchers or jars. The staff is fun, young and friendly, and this place is a total, no frills, hang out type bar. And the food is pretty great as well. The best time to hang out at Dominick's is a sunny afternoon, as Dominick's is mostly a day/early evening place, closing at 10 pm.
The bottom line: The pricing here is pretty college/ budget friendly. Each throw in 10 or 20 bucks, you'll get drinks and a meal and leave feeling satisfied.
Dominick's is located at:
812 Monroe St, Ann Arbor, MI 48104
Hours: Mon-Sat 10am-10pm

Last November I attended the Detroit Lions-Green Bay Packers game at Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan and thanks to the fine people at Levy Restaurants and Finn Partners, I was able to meet up with Executive Chef Joe Nader and learn about the wonderful culinary offerings that the stadium has available for its patrons.
Food at sporting events has long been thought of as overpriced and boring, with the basic staples of popcorn, hot dogs, pizza and nachos generally leading the way. However, over the past few years companies like Levy Restaurants, who operate the concessions and restaurants at over 100 venues around the world, have begun to take stadium food to the next level.
Although the staples are still popular on game day (Ford Field sells approximately 10,000 hot dogs a game), Chef Nader strives to deliver restaurant quality food throughout the stadium. To do this on a game day is no easy task. It typically sees the Chef and his team starting at 4AM and working until the stadium is cleared out. This includes preparing all the food for the 132 luxury suites, the Hall of Legends restaurant featuring the famous Chef's Table, all general concessions, a number of concept restaurants inside the stadium and catering for the press, teams and referees.
Dearborn Sausage Company is another local Michigan vendor and this year has become the official hot dog of the Detroit Lions. The quality of the product is so good that I would challenge anyone to find another hot dog as good anywhere.
You cannot talk about the Detroit Lions and Ford Field without bringing up Thanksgiving. The Detroit Lions have hosted the annual Thanksgiving Day contest since 1934, with last years game against Houston being the 73rd in the teams history. Chef Nader had a few special things planned as always on Thanksgiving. At his Chef's Table he featured a Thanksgiving station with all the fixings and they also served over 1,000 jumbo turkey legs throughout the stadium.
If you are heading down to Ford Field in the future don't just get stuffed at the tailgate, get down to the stadium early and check out some of the excellent food items available.
I would like to send out a special thank you to Chef Joe Nader for being so gracious with his time and to Sarah Janousek of Finn Partners for making this all happen.
