The Michigan Daily Best of Arn' Arbor1997 -

RESTAURANTS
Continued from Page 78
Best Korean Food:
Kana Restaurant
Kana Restaurant is fancier than other
Korean eateries in town. The soups are
as filling as an entire meal, and the
appetizers are terrific also.
Best Mexican Food:
Panchero's
Panchero's is convenient with their late
hours. Good thing Village Apothecary
sells Immodium AD right next door.
Best Vegetarian Food:
Seva Restaurant
Ann Arbor's house-o-veggies takes

the cake in a town chock-full of non-
carnivorous eateries. Try the
chimichangas - they may not be the
most healthful menu item (read: they're
deep fried), but they're unforgettable.
Best Deli:
Amer's Delicatessen
Recently remodeled, easily accessi-
ble with two dine-in locations on cam-
pus, Amer's four-score plus sandwich
selection provides something for all.
And how about those pickles?
Best Restaurant
Service:
Cottage Inn
Campus Dine in
"Garcon? Coffee." With free bread
and olive oil, drink refills and

entrees galore, the waitstaff at
Cottage Inn is always on top of
things.
Best Greasy Spoon:
Fleetwood Diner
The Fleetwood Diner, on S. Ashley
St., may take next year's proposed cat-
egory, "Most Greasy Clientele," as
well, but it's no surprise winner this
year. And how about the hash? Corned
beef, that is.
Best Sports Bar:
Touchdown Cafe
With televisions abounding, great
Happy Hour specials and decent wings
to boot, Touchdown Cafe is the quintes-
sential sports bar. And any place that
has foosball in the basement has got to
be great.

Best Breakfast:
Angelo's Restaurant
Known for its three-mile-high raisin
French toast, Angelo's often has hour-
long waits on weekend mornings.
Trust us - the place really hops.
Best Lunch:.
Amer's Delicatessen
Multi-category winner Amer's has
the best lunches, readers say. If you
have a bourgeious appetite, go for the
sandwiches - all of you with prole-
tariat pocketbooks can opt

Best Outdoor Eatery:
Good Time Charley's
Great people watching is Charley's
strong point. The traffic watching isn't
bad, either. You're bound to see at least
one accident per meal, as the outdoor
seating is at the intersection of Church
Street and South University Avenue.
Make sure to pick out auto debris from
the Count Twists before you eat, however.
Best Late-Night (tie):
The Backroom;
Panchero's,

Best of Books
Famous authors journeyed to A2 tkl

for the soup.

Best Dinner
(tie):
The Real
Seafood
Company;
Jet's Pizza

ry

Let's hear it for the
intestines! They're bound to
be busy after a few
Backroom slices or an el
gordo-sized two pound bur-
rito from Pancheros. Don't
say you weren't warned.
Best Munchies
(tie):
Taco Bell; Jet's
Pizza
With Taco Bell's prices.

Best Reading:
Margaret Atwood
The prolific author brought clever
writing, dry humor - and a very cool
Canadian accent - to her February read-
ing. A standing-room-only crowd filled
the Michigan Theater to hear selections
from her latest novel, "Alias Grace."
Funniest Reading:"
Elmore Leonard
Leonard's prose took on a whole new
dimension when read aloud at January's
Hopwood Awards ceremony. Leonard
was also the first crime novelist to read at
ti he Hopwoods.
Most Unique Reading:
Leslie Marmon Silko
When Silko visited campus for

Native American Heritage Month in
November, her reading was preceded by
a traditional Native American prayer
ceremony. It's not often that a literary
event can be presented with this type of
historical and cultural context.
Most Surprising
Reading:
Joyce Carol Oates
When this renowned, award-win-
ning author read from her latest novel,
"We Were the Mulvanevs," she didn't
appear at a venue like Rackham
Amphitheatre or the Michigan

Theater. Instead, Oates read to a very
crowded upstairs section of Borders.
It's not clear why this was planned,
but it was definitely surprising to see
an author of Oates' caliber read in
such a small, casual setting.
Most Overlooked
Readings:
University Visiting
Writers' Series
Attention, students: High-quality
writers like William Matthews, Lorrie
Moore and Philip Levine actually come
to this campus. Yes, you never heard

about this, but don't let the strange lack
of publicity deter you. Go to these read-
ings. Now.
Best Literary Weekend:
November 8th and 9th,
1996
On that Friday night, Nov. 8, 1996,

Talk about mutually
exclusive ... let's see here:
"Give me two with pep-
.peroni," or "Buffy will have the
shrimp linguini, and I will have the
prime rib, rare. And a bottle of your
best sauvignon." You be the judge.
Best Take Out:
Pizza House
How about those chipatis? Mmm,
good. If you order the pizza to go, how-
ever, be ready for quite a workout -
with tons of real cheese heaped onto
each pie. carryinau one can be an
Olympic-type experence.

one could feed a third-world country with
a finski. Jet's also appears once again.
What do they sell? Subliminal pizzas:?
Best Place for Folks to
Take You:
Gandy Dancer
As if your parents can afford this
after tuition, living and ITD printing
costs. But seriously, the class of Ann
Arbor. Gandydancer offers the best in
parental-purchased meals. Don't forget
