Northern Michigan's Most Iconic Eats

By Beth Milligan | July 27, 2020

Even in the best of times, a remarkable dish from a local restaurant is a joy, a comfort, and a reminder of the best that life can be. It’s safe to say that 2020 has not been the best of times, but in an odd way, that’s only made the bright spots feel that much brighter. Suffice to say that, when you’re stuck at home and facing a historic pandemic, few things sound better than a bite of a beloved dish from your favorite restaurant. Perhaps it reminds you of better times — of celebrations with friends and family, good times you hope will come again soon. Or maybe it’s simpler than that. Maybe that bite of bursting, heavenly flavor is enough to make you forget all the bad news, if only for a few moments.

Whatever the reason, it seems a lot of locals and tourists alike are seeking solace in local culinary delights. When speaking to restaurants for the third installment of the “iconic local eats” series, the Northern Express — sister publication of The Ticker — shared tales of heavy traffic and high demand. The takeaway? Even in this uncertain time, no one wants to go without that old standby sandwich or that beguiling Bloody Mary. In tribute to that mysterious power of great food, this week's Northern Express features the next five inductees the menu of legendary northern Michigan dishes. Check out the complete story on the Northern Express online, or pick up a free copy at one of nearly 700 spots in 14 counties across northern Michigan.
