DANGEROUSLY DELICIOUS PIES FINDS HOME

After months of missing delicious pies by the slice, Dangerously Delicious Pies opened their Detroit brick-and-mortar location to bring us paradise on a plate again.

Dangerously Delicious Pies first popped up in the old Comet Bar and then Third Street Bar, but it was an idea long before then. Two musicians and friends started cooking up pies and selling them at shows and on the road, and since then, the pies and the rock ‘n’ roll haven’t stopped. The team behind Dangerously Delicious Pies opened their first brick-and-mortar location in 2016 in Wyandotte, and not too long after the Detroit spot followed.

The menu of sweet and savory pies changes daily because the pie ideas are always flowing, so both slices and whole pies are available until someone snatches them up. When they’ve got it, their S.M.O.G. is their most popular, stuffed with steak, mushrooms, onions and gruyere cheese. For vegetarians, they’ve got their Hot Rod Potato, full of red potatoes, sweet peppers, jalapenos and cheddar cheese. Their sweet pie menu offers a Baltimore Bomb, that they say “tastes like a chocolate chip cookie on steroids”, homemade pecan and apple, salted caramel and more.

A slice goes for $7 and a whole pie for $35. You can check out the full menu here.

Visit Dangerously Delicious Pies’ new Detroit location at 70 W. Alexandrine St. and visit them on social media here.

VOYAGER OPENS IN FERNDALE

Voyager is bringing a new raw bar to Ferndale and set to open with seafood, oysters and more this Thursday, March 16th at 4pm.

When you walk into the space, you’ll see a raw bar that serves up oysters, ceviches and crudos, and a matching sea aesthetic with bright whites, coral and mermaid aqua for a splash of color. The oysters can be ordered on the half shell, fried, grilled or dressed, and the oyster program is run by experts who procure them from seaside shellfish farms in Massachusetts, Alabama and Washington.

You can order from the plates section of the menu, which features a Pickled Seafood Cocktail, made of sherry, celery, red onion and saltines, Frito Misto with razor clams, shrimp and fish, mayo and malt vinegar, and a Whitefish Sandwich with coconut slaw and fermented pepper aioli.

The beverage portion of the menu features fun drinks like their Mai Tai, made with tangerine curacao, fresh lime and hazelnut orgeat, and their Blow the Man Down, made with mezcal, yellow chartreuse, campari and bitters. Voyager also offers a wine list, with sparkling, rosé, white and red options. You can also order from their beer list, which features two draft brews and a great list of craft beers, including a Coconut Brown Ale from Blackrocks Brewery.

Need more reason to check out the place? They’ve got a Pineapple Upside-Down Cake, topped with whipped cream, to finish off the meal.

Visit Voyager at 600 Vester St. Tuesday-Thursday from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m.

You can follow the team at Voyager at voyagerferndale.com and on Facebook and Instagram.
