Ristorante Luci creates Italian fare with a classica flair and serves it within a warm, intimate atmosphere. Like the color of a slovenly roommate's sweatpants, the menu changes with the seasons, as the ristorante works with as many Minnesota-based farmers as possible to stock its larder with fresh, flavorful ingredients. Prepare for piquant pasta with a curtain-raiser such as the sautéed green beans ($10), partnered with an organic chopped egg and a dabbling of truffle oil. The fusilli alla Luci ($11) mingles its corkscrew pasta with grilled chicken, broccoli, and a garnish of red-pepper flakes. For something meatier, try the dish that's synonymous with Italy—slow-braised New Zealand lamb shank ($16)—which melts in mouths before unleashing stores of tomato and rosemary flavor. Schemes to get one's Iowan cousin crowned King of Malaysia are best concocted over a capper of homemade desserts, coffees, and cappuccinos.

More than 50 years go, Mike Ilitch was poised for major-league glory. An up-and-coming shortstop for the Detroit Tigers, his baseball finesse was blossoming when an injury derailed his sports career. But although the wound stunted his athletic aspirations, it steered him toward a new path, and on May 8, 1959, he and his wife opened the first Little Caesars location, a then-unheard-of carry-out-only joint. The career shift and novel technique eventually proved triumphant. Today, the pizzeria's iconic, toga-clad mascot adorns storefronts on five continents. In each shop, staffers forge the signature Hot-N-Ready pizza, a freshly baked pizza designed for instant pickup, and warm, garlicky Crazy bread. With a storied half-century under their belt, Mike Ilitch and his family strive to give back, supporting local organizations and creating their own charitable programs.
