Ann Arbor: Can't beat these eats


As a senior graduating from the
University in April, I have come to
appreciate the numerous attributes that
are unique to-Ann Arbor. Most stu-
dents are satisfied with the conve-
nience of Entree Plus at the Union or
the ease with which they can order a
chipati from Pizza House.
But as a consumer of great food
around this town I must state un-
equivocally that to dine, in other words
eatout, not the vaulted meaning which
conjures up visions of champagne
and aspic, in Ann Arbor is a real treat.
The restaurants around this town of-
fer some of the finest food I have ever
tasted, not to mention the reasonable
prices, enjoyable atmosphere and
quality service that most provide for
their customers. But let us not simply
wallow in generalities, it's time to
really dig in and get the juice on the
places that supply chow with pow to
Ann Arborites and University stu-
dents and staff.
Breakfast, considered to be most
important by "health experts" and
skipped most often by everyone else,
is more than just a meal at Angelo's.
It is an experience that should not be
missed by anyone. To graduate from
the University and never have tasted
the French toast made from their own

home baked bread isjust plain wrong.
Not only does the proprietor offer it
prepared the way Mom used to make
it, but the menu also lists fried French
toast with strawberries and whipped
cream. Consider consuming that dish
before sitting down to write a 10 or 20
page paper. Clearly, there is no chance
of getting that feeling of extreme tired-
ness once the third page is written
after a shot of sugar that large. For the
health conscious fat gram and calorie
intake counter, the same French toast
can also be prepared with egg whites
and skim milk.
Lunch is made into an occasion
for many students, who use it as a
time to catch up with friends and
leisurely enjoy whatever seems to fit
the mood of the day. Let me suggest a
restaurant whose name alone con-
notes an extremely enjoyable lunch
experience, Afternoon Delight. The
large selection on the menu includes
soup in a bread bowl, for those cold
and windy days, sandwiches and the
best salad bar I've seen this side of the
East River. The salad bar extends
beyond the basic veggies and includes
four cold pasta dishes. It also offers
eight different dressings and a variety
of mustards and jams to spread on the
bread which is included as well. Oh,
and it's also a refillable bowl. The

best time to go for a meal is about l
p.m. between late March and early
October when there are still tables
available for outdoor seating. Now
savor your meal.
Places to eat dinner abound in
Ann Arbor. There are restaurants that
prepare anything from Korean cui-
sine to French and Southwestern to
Depending on the predisposition
of your paunch there is a restaurant
that will accommodate your mood.
Palio, an Italian restaurant on Main
street is a great choice for quality food
and service, as well as prices and
atmosphere that make the customer
comfortable. The pasta dishes on the
menu allow the customer to choose
what kind of noodle out of five types
he or she wants and then match the
noodle with the dish, like pasta
primavera using rigatoni or gnocchi
with tomato basil sauce. The menu
supplies all the traditional favorites
with some new twists. It's fun to go
out and experiment with different
dishes, especially if you're with
friends because it is an experience
everyone can share. Just be wary if
your friend wants you to order the
octopus with capers and goat cheese
while he or she munches away on
baked ziti.
So get out there! These are just
suggestions and these opinions were
only formed through trial and, unfor-
tunately for my poor tummy, error.
There are tons of places to go, but
they must be sought out. Let your
fingers do the walking or better yet,
buy a ticket on the heel toe express
and look around for yourself.
I know, as I lamentthemany things
that I will be leaving behind come
May 1st, the "tastes of Ann Arbor"
will be high on the list.
