FOOD & DRINK
OLD SHILLELAGH
349 Monroe Street - Detroit - 313-965-4600

Its Greektown location makes it convenient and its decidedly Irish character has kept it a treasured spot for over 20 years. Good solid tavern fare such as shepherd's pie, hearty burgers and daily specials nourish the body while live Irish entertainment feeds the soul. The bar is well stocked with all kinds of Irish goodies!

NEW HELLAS CAFE
Greektown - 583 Monroe - Detroit - 313-961-5544

In Greektown, this place is "the one on the corner." All the requisites-lamb, saganaki, tasskebob, mousaka, grape leaves - are here, minus the ladle of grease that trouble so many neighborhood dishes. Probably the finest Greek restaurant in Greektown. Authentic food served in a comfortable atmosphere, and not expensive! It is a very popular restaurant, and one that I try to hit on every visit to the Motor City!

EL ZOCALO
3400 Bagley - Detroit - 313-841-3700

El Zocalo's Tex-Mex menu will be familiar to anyone who's cruised Mexicantown looking for the perfect margaritas, enchiladas, fajitas, chimichangas, chilaquiles, tacos, quesadillas and burritos. The best dish at El Zocalo are the fajitas.

LELLI'S INN
885 N Opdyke Road - Auburn Hills - 248-373-4440

This Italian eatery's immense menu would take a lifetime to thoroughly sample. Lelli's is home to the finest of veal, the thickest of minestrones and the most precise service. Tip: Save room for the house-made ice creams.
