Mark Kurlyandchik Detroit Free Press Published 11:00 p.m. UTC Jul 12, 2018 In an era of exciting culinary experimentation and personality, Empire Kitchen & Cocktails is banal to the bone. Its arrival to Brush Park in mid-May was greeted with media buzz, but Empire's vanilla vision offers a dreary look into Detroit's potential culinary soul. So let this be a warning ... The new restaurant is located on the ground floor of the Scott at Brush Park, a two-year-old $65-million luxury apartment building currently for sale by the developer, according to Crain's. A two-bedroom apartment in the 199-unit building will set you back about $2,200 a month and includes amenities such as pet-grooming, 24-hour concierge, a fitness center and a “four-season outdoor lounge & spa with heated deck, fireplace and hot tub,” the building's website boasts. Also new on the block are a bakery that sells a kaleidoscopic array of Parisian-style macarons; an outpost of … [Read more...] about Restaurant Review: Detroit’s Empire Kitchen & Cocktails has no clothes

By Jackie Burrell | [email protected] | Bay Area News Group June 23, 2018 at 9:00 am Looking for the perfect Fourth of July party showstopper? This Summer Berry Trifle from America’s Test Kitchen is made from scratch, from the chiffon cake base to the vanilla pastry cream and sherry-scented whipped cream. It’s beautiful and fresh — and all the components can be made ahead of time. “This is the ultimate summer berry trifle,” says America’s Test Kitchen’s Jack Bishop, chatting by phone about Fourth of July party planning. “You’re going to do it completely from scratch, but it’s a component recipe. You can break up the work and take off in different directions. If you wanted to buy a sponge cake at the supermarket and skip that step, your world will not end. If you were going to cut corners: the cake. But please, please, make your own pastry cream! It’s so much better than what you can buy.” … [Read more...] about America’s Test Kitchen’s epic Fourth of July dessert — a summer berry trifle

Saturday, after a cleanup at Linear Park and North Buffalo Rails-to-Trails organized by the University Heights Collaborative and The Tool Library, I spent some time exploring the neighborhoods west of University Heights. Exiting the rail-trail onto Shoshone Street, a cluster of stylish buildings at the corner of Parkside caught my eye. The five buildings were multi-family housing, with beautiful, picturesque, yet simple architectural styling and details that set them apart from other multi-family buildings nearby with more of the inner-ring-suburb, post-war apartment complex vibe that leaves me cold. Eclectic but predominantly Tudor, the buildings were clearly the product of the same architect or developer yet each was distinct from the others. Some appeared to be frame construction, while others were brick (or, more likely, brick-over-frame). Different Tudor half-timbering patterns were used in different ways. The roofs of each were different, from gabled to various hip-roof schemes … [Read more...] about Parkside and Shoshone: Dwyer’s Corners?

(Find more photos of food and The Corner here.) Jane's rule: If you don't want people to talk about the ax-throwing in your restaurant, don't have ax-throwing in your restaurant. I prepared for my trip to the Axe by listening to a Stuff You Should Know episode about knife-throwing. It wasn't enough. Apparently there's a guy named Throwdini that you've got to see. I was horrible, though not as bad as my teammate, who never stuck it once. First your ax-master gives a serious safety talk. Then the teams start tossing, with a lot of cheering, groaning, celebrating, and general encouragement. It's harder or easier than it looks, depending on how hard you think it looks. In the random match-up I was part of as a "walk-in," folks were sweet as could be and not outwardly disheartened when their axes clattered to the floor. The venue has just one alcohol rule, "No Shots Upstairs," which is where the throwing takes place. "They say that at the gun range, too," remarked a bystander. But … [Read more...] about Review: There’s more than ax-throwing at Ferndale’s Corner restaurant

Share Tweet Share Email Comments Print Pam Weirauch, owner of Pam’s Corner at 116 10th St., is closing her immensely popular restaurant at 2 p.m. Wednesday after the lunch service. As she posted on Facebook last week: “16 years ago Pam’s Corner began as a solution to my mid-life crisis. I needed a challenge and I wanted to meet new people. All of that happened and in the process I have learned so much about business, people and myself. My favorite part has been the relationships. Sometimes it’s a joke, a tear, a hug, a smile or a half hour conversation but each and every interaction has warmed my soul and nourished me through all the difficult and crazy days ... “Pam’s Corner has been the opportunity of a lifetime. To everyone who has ever crossed our threshold, today is the day that I officially thank you from the bottom of my heart.” CHEAP EATS: Deals that can’t be missed at Pam’s corner … [Read more...] about Impossible to forget Pam’s Corner
