Smita Ahluwalia didn't set out to become a chef—she's a doctor by profession—but when the lifelong foodie found the spice blends available in American supermarkets drab, she had to intervene. In 2007, she founded Peacock Spice Company, which distributes flavorful Indian spice blends across the country. In the process of growing her first company, Smita realized that the international foods market in India wasn't very developed and decided to bring one of her favorite foods overseas with Oye Crepes.
Today, the quick-serve restaurant has three locations—two in India and one in Detroit—that serve a mix of sweet and savory crepes. A plain crepe has just 1.5 grams of fat and can make a nutritious meal filled with fresh fruits, veggies, and herbs. But Oye also has decadent crepes such as the french kiss, which is filled with strawberries, nutella, vanilla ice cream, and chocolate sauce, then brought to the table by Gérard Depardieu.
The chefs at Taboon Middle Eastern Cuisine grill flame-kissed meats, fry crispy falafel patties, and puree vats of creamy hummus to give diners an authentic taste of faraway lands. Meals might start with an order of grape leaves stuffed with lamb and rice or a shareable sample platter, and then move on to an entree of beef shish kebabs or skewered shrimp. The restaurant's full bar stocks wines, beers, and well drinks, while a selection of fruit juices comes fresh squeezed from the juice tree.
For more than 35 years, Latina Restaurant & Pizzeria has filled its memorabilia-clad dining room with hearty Italian and American dishes. Cheese melts atop house-made Goofy Bread, which heralds entrees such as Tuscan-style chicken ravioli filled with roasted chicken, onion, celery, and parsley. Specialty pizzas shake up traditional pie paradigms with unorthodox offerings such as the Cajun, topped with italian sausage, smoked gouda, and Cajun spices. Guests can tuck into Angus burgers or breaded ravioli poppers in Latina Restaurant & Pizzeria’s newly remodeled dining room, or root for their favorite sports team or spectator in the adjacent sports bar area.
Vics shares the same owners and brick-and-mortar space with the Italian eatery Ruggero’s, and if they were brothers, Vics would be the laid-back one. Vintage lampposts illuminate the long, wooden bar adorned with decals of beer bottles. Fisherman ropes wind around posts that run across the entire interior. In the back, weathered wood panels cover the wall, and a flat screen TV hangs above bistro tables and a cozy booth. The menu consists of beer and pizzas crafted from dough made fresh daily. Vics’ chefs top crusts with such ingredients as broccoli, banana peppers, Italian sausage, pepperoni, and mushrooms.
