Where Should We Eat? What Should We Eat?

Whenever I travel, the first thing I like to know is where to eat, and what to eat. At Changing Gears, we’re determined to make our states as well known for their food as they are for their lakes and what we make here.

So tell us: where should we eat — in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, and upstate New York? How about Ontario? What’s your favorite dish in Detroit, Cleveland and Chicago? Which farm markets do you recommend? Wineries, bakeries?

Likewise, tell us what we should avoid, too. For instance, I am Coney Dog-averse (she ducks to avoid outcry from Coney fans). But I’m always on the hunt for great smoked fish, like the kind I’ve had at Calumet Fisheries on the outskirts of Chicago. Some say the best only comes from the Upper Peninsula: right or wrong?

Post your suggestions here or visit our Facebook page. While you’re there, become a fan of Changing Gears. If we’re intrigued by your suggestion, we may ask Mike Nagrant to make it part of Reinvention Recipes. So, let us know where to go!

  1. Giovanni's in Detroit is located in a Mordor-like industrial area near the oil refinery. It's an oasis of hospitality, family run and owned for years. The best Italian food I've ever had in the U.S. — pasta all handmade by the 80 year old pasta queen. They've endured two fires, rebuilt and offer a wonderful and warm environment that makes it a destination.
