Serving up Magic Water at the (espresso) bar

When we heard about the (espresso) bar's new website, we were excited to capture the photos. With its laid back atmosphere (the lower level of a house steps from Kerrytown and Farmers Market) and simple, yet fundamental menu choices, it's one of our favorite places to relax and enjoy an espresso.

Sandy, the owner, goes out of his way to offer each customer an authentic experience with immediate water as you sit down and drinks, like filter coffee or hot tea, brought to your table. 

Some drinks, like the latte and cortado, are as enjoyable to look at as they are to drink.

Of course there's always espresso. The one below is from a coffee from El Salvador called El Borbollon, located near the Santa Ana volcano. It's 100% Red Bourbon variety.

Drinks are available to-go as well AND you have your choice of paper or glass - genius!

Lastly, if you're a die hard summer person who's not frightened by a few very early fall-like days then the iced coffee and iced tea are for you.

Our Favorite Spot in Town: Food photos at Mr. Spots

For almost twenty years now I've been going to Mr. Spots, the home of the Philly cheesesteak (served on an Amoroso bun), hot wings and a phenomenally delicious chicken sandwich steps from UM's campus. I had discovered the place with my best friend during high school and continued to go even after Nick and I moved to Chicago on our visits home. 

We met with owner Keith McKendry (he owns one other Mr. Spots locations with his business partner Tim Wojcik) to talk about what look he wanted for his rotating digital menus, but we already knew the product all too well. We had little trouble highlighting some of our favorites like the Philly Original, waffle fries and chicken fingers.

The food is simply top notch American fare prepared in an immaculate and well-appropriated kitchen. There have been a lot of improvements since their first location (just next door) back in 1986 and it shows. Known for serving up the freshest and hottest food on the strip, athletes including Tom Brady and Charles Woodson have made Mr. Spot's their go-to place on campus and later during their professional careers.

But enough said. We'll let the food speak for itself.

Sustainable and Delicious: Pop-up Dinners with Central Provisions

Our calendar's been busy with food shoots and today's post will not disappoint your senses.

We'd been to the The Bar at 327 Braun Court for drinks in the past but we kept hearing about a spectacular pop-up dinner that was taking place there. 

Central Provisions is a weekly occurring dinner on Wednesday evenings, sourcing organic, sustainable and when possible, local ingredients. Nick met the partners and chefs behind the operation Steve Hall and Abby Olitzky, while they whipped up their delectable plates and the results were beautifully tempting. 

The small plate menu changes weekly but here's what they were serving that particular evening: 

Ricotta baked in tomato leaves, crostini, pickled garlic scapes (brinery) 

Fried eggplant and padron peppers, buttermilk, chives

Crispy kale salad, shaved spring vegetables, parmesan, honey lemon vinaigrette

Cherry tomato cobbler, cheddar

Chicken with tarragon cream sauce, carrots, almonds

Summer berry pudding, whipped cream

With such a thoughtfully curated menu, it's no wonder that they're getting rave reviews and building lots of interest among the foodie set in Ann Arbor. To learn more about their ever-changing menu, contact them at

Bon appétit!
