Excellent new restaurant!

OK, so this restaurant is over in Ypsilanti, but I know more travelers read the Ann Arbor forum so I'm posting this here.

Bon Sera Cafe: Bad Women Cooking is a wonderful new restaurant that grew out of a love of food and commitment to local community. If you're looking for unique, fresh food in a great setting (which you used to be able to find all over Ann Arbor until the chains started moving in), head over to this place:

I'm wishing Wonder Woman and Bad Fairy much luck with their new restaurant. We'll be beating a path to their door on a regular basis! I'll put a TA review in as well once we've sampled more dishes.

Thanks for sharing, luv2. Wow, that was an incredibly well written and thorough article! Enjoyed reading it. Ypsi certainly could use a new place like that, and I am so glad they are using the old Kresge building. Beautiful building. Sounds like you had a great meal and have a new place to hang out!

Yes, that was a particularly well-written review, especially for AnnArbor.com which can be pretty dicey with its reporting. In a town with way too many English majors they don't seem to have anyone on staff who reviews for quality of writing and adequacy of facts.

Ypsi is coming alive in a way that reminds me of Ann Arbor a few decades ago when it was not over run by generic chains of restaurants and retail stores. There are still great places in Ann Arbor, but they are competing against more and more corporate places. But then there are those who are finding a way to be fresh and innovative in spite of all the corporate stuff like the culinary delights at Mark's Carts:

The Ann Arbor I fell in love with as an undergrad is struggling as much of the town becomes increasingly generic suburbia (I remember the joy of flopping in a comfy chair in an alcove of the funky building that housed the original Borders bookstore and having a lime-ade at Drakes). I'm excited to see what is happening just down the road in Ypsi and while patronizing the places that still are unique in Ann Arbor.
