This is Rosie’s Diner on East Jefferson. It’s gotten national acclaim as one of the best restaurants in the country even though it’s a tiny hole-in-the-wall on the east side of Detroit. I think the secret is that they make everything from scratch. They grow the ingredients. And you know everything is fresh because they run out of stuff. That can be frustrating when half the items on the menu are not available but, hey, get there earlier next time. The only complaints I had were the coffee – way too weak – and it’s cold in there. They need one of those vestibule enclosures so that when someone opens the front door it doesn’t let in the gale force winds from the river. But, in general, this place is a gem.
There is a new story under the Life tab called “Charmed.” Hope you like it.
