Like attaching a fake mustache to a Halloween mask or cleverly changing your name from Obi-Wan Kenobi to Ben Kenobi, adding a new ingredient to something familiar can render it delightfully unrecognizable. Enjoy inventive eats with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of world beat cuisine at Sweet Lorraine’s Cafe and Bar, valid only at the Southfield location.
Sweet Lorraine’s Cafe and Bar chef, Lorraine Platman, who launched her career by baking russian cheesecake out of her own kitchen, cooks with ingredients from all over the world to serve up an eclectic, global menu. The popular pecan-coated amish chicken breast sits atop a mustard cream sauce ($12.95 lunch, $17.95 dinner), whereas broiled maple-cured salmon arrives alongside a side of michigan dried-cherry salsa ($13.95 lunch, $19.95 dinner). Portobello mushroom gravy, roasted garlic mashed potatoes, and parmesan broccoli surround the vegetarian meatloaf ($10.95 lunch, $15.95 dinner), and the grilled tenderloin steak salad’s two beef medallions ($13.95 lunch, $18.95 dinner) look especially regal on a bed of organic greens, gorgonzola cheese, and caramelized onions, or when pinned to a diner’s lapel. A lengthy wine list boasts more than 25 varieties by the glass as well as dozens of ever-changing imported beers and spirits, while a dessert tray offers daily specials and regular items such as chocolate mouse cake and Scottish country pudding ($4.95 each).
Sweet Lorraine's Cafe & Bar
Sweet Lorraine's Cafe & Bar wholeheartedly embraces a smattering of influences, apparent in everything from the menu to the music. Nearly 30 years ago, when Lorraine Platman swung open the doors of her namesake restaurant, she had already racked up several years of success in the cheesecake and baked goods businesses. Her familiarity with healthy, homemade food and her artistic inclination found their way to what she calls "world beat cuisine" at Sweet Lorraine's.
Today, chefs churn out an epicurean mélange of plates, from quesadillas stuffed with pear and brie to hot salmon nicoise salad and chicken and shrimp creole. A host of gluten-free options are also available, and a wine list boasts an extensive selection of 25 wines by the glass as well as a host of craft cocktails.
