“The food scene has really exploded in the region. There are farmers’ markets and hip-looking people farming and butchering. It’s very cool … The chefs involved in the scene celebrate what’s here; they’re not trying to be anything they’re not. Now people are coming for gastronomic tourism.”
~Mario Batali in Bon Appetit

Mario’s words were apparently not lost on Bon Appetit, who named Traverse City one of America’s five top foodie towns. Traverse City’s chefs & restaurants are drawing acclaim and taking the foods of our area to new heights. Do yourself a favor and make a reservation today!
