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.

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.

MACCABEES RELAUNCHES AS MACCABEES TRADERS

The old Maccabees restaurant on Woodward Avenue has made some major changes in the last couple months, including a new chef, a new co-owner and operating partner, and a new flavorful Asian-inspired menu. The new-old spot, now called Maccabees Traders, is re-launching at 5057 Woodward Ave. on March 6.

This re-launch is an exciting one since chef Rafael Esparza spent his time preparing inside the kitchens of his friends’ grandmothers. He wanted to make sure that the flavors on the Maccabees Traders menu would be authentic, tasty and approachable.

The new menu will feature green papaya salad, chicken and jasmine rice dumpling soup, Vernor’s glazed thit kho (pork belly), grilled tofu steaks with zip sauce, shrimp bahn mi, and the big showstopper- chicken wings, made with Vietnamese fish sauce.

Esparza figured that many people are comfortable with the idea of chicken wings and they know what to expect, so his dish would have some familiarity alongside a good introduction to a new flavor to get people out of their comfort zones.

You can also order their Sticky Smoky Sesame Wings, made with honey ginger, toasted sesame, chili threads and lime, or their Thai Chicken Wrap, made with peppers, cilantro, rice powder, peanuts and tamarind.

The team puts a large emphasis on hospitality, creating a full experience the moment you walk in the door to the moment you leave the restaurant. Everybody is different, Esparza said, so the cookie-cutter style of hospitality won’t work at Maccabees Traders. Esparza and the team want each visitor to enjoy their meal and experience enough to feel excited to come back.

The drink menu is full of simplicity and freshness, said David Kraus, co-owner and operating partner. Since everything at Maccabees Traders is about the food, the beverage menu will feature clean flavors, suggestions for drink and food pairings, and craft cocktails made with natural ingredients. You can order a Gunpowder ​Old Fashioned, made with Bulleit Rye, ​Meyer lemon, black pepper and  bitters, or a QLine ​Cordial, made with Fernet Branca, 2 James ​Catchers Rye and basil simple syrup.

Sunday brunch service will continue from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with a mix of the old Maccabees menu and a touch of the new Maccabees Traders menu.

The future of Maccabees Traders includes a café for before work treats and caffeine boosts.

Visit maccabeestraders.com for more information and follow them on social to stay current. Pop in to 5057 Woodward Ave. to visit the team and try out the new menu.

SHAKE SHACK OPENS IN DETROIT

Our mouths have been watering ever since we heard about it coming to town and today, February 23, our taste buds will be rewarded for the wait- Shake Shack opens their doors at 11 a.m. at 660 Woodward Ave. in Campus Martius Park.

Shake Shack is known for their all-natural, antibiotic-free Angus beef burgers, chicken, griddled flat-top dogs, fresh-made frozen custard, beer, wine, and those delicious crispy crinkle cut fries. Their products are never served with added hormones.

You can order anything from a SmokeShack cheeseburger with all-natural smoked Niman Ranch bacon, chopped cherry pepper and ShackSauce, to a Motor City Mix with vanilla custard, peanut butter sauce, Bon Bon Bon dark chocolate and Rocky’s honey roasted peanuts and chocolate toffee. The Detroit location also offers beer, wine and get this- even dog treats, specially made at Shake Shack for your four-legged friend.

Their first location popped up as a roadside burger stand in New York City’s Madison Square Park in 2004 and the hype hasn’t died down one bit- there’s almost always a line wrapping around the shack whenever their windows are open.

Shake Shack, with a mission of Stand For Something Good, has since opened multiple spots in 16 states and the District of Columbia. They’re also in London, Istanbul, Dubai, Tokyo, Moscow, Seoul and other international locations.

The Detroit location is Shake Shack’s first Michigan spot and the big ribbon cutting ceremony is set for 10:45 a.m. outside the Shake Shack doors. They’ll open to the public at 11 a.m.

La Bohème brings Paris to West Village

Who sells their Paris flats and moves to Detroit? Eve de Castro and Jean Jeannot, that’s who. The two are now the owners of La Bohème, a new French café in the heart of West Village.

Detroit caught their eyes after de Castro saw mention of the city’s bankruptcy and kept up to date on how Detroiters were coming back from such a downfall. She is a novelist but was looking for a different adventure, so she asked Jeannot if he’d like to move to Detroit and open a French café, and he said yes. The rest is histoire.

La Bohème is bringing something new to its neighborhood of West Village – it’s a small, cozy café that prides itself on attention to detail, the owners’ French roots and products from the very best.

La Bohème not only offers coffee, breakfast and lunch, but serves tea from Paris’ own Le Palais des Thés, and serves baked goods, chocolate, quiches and pastries made by Matt Knio, formerly of Bristol Hôtel. Bristol Hôtel is a 5 star hotel in Paris and Knio now delivers pastries each morning to La Bohème from his kitchen at Birmingham’s Canelle Patisserie.

The team at La Bohème want to teach people about tea and are on hand to enlighten. They serve smoked teas, black teas, green teas and much more.

You can order croques, quiche, sandwiches, tartines and salads off of the café’s Dejeuner Menu (Lunch Menu). Try their Croque Mademoiselle, made of roasted bread, smoked salmon, fresh cream and dill, or maybe their Brigitte Sandwich, made of brie cheese, raisin, honey and walnuts, served in a crispy baguette.

The basement of the café has been renovated as an art space where de Castro and Jeannot plan to feature different local artists on a regular basis. Right now, the metal work and photography of Darko Stojanovski is on display.

We can all look forward to their crêpes, which are coming soon.

The café is open every day except Monday from 7.30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Stop by at 8100 Kercheval, right near Sister Pie, and visit La Bohème on Facebook to stay updated.
