Northern Michigan's Most Iconic Eats

By Beth Milligan | May 13, 2019

In early 2018, the Northern Express - sister publication of The Ticker - set out to answer a vital question: What are some of the most legendary dishes in northern Michigan?
 
Through hundreds of recommendations from readers, as well as extensive research on staff's part, the publication crowned its first class of iconic dishes. That installment featured everything from a tomato soup to an herb-encrusted rack of lamb and highlighted beloved Up North establishments like Amical in downtown Traverse City and Art’s Tavern in Glen Arbor.

In this week's Northern Express, the next class of inductees is introduced to the publication's growing hall of fame. This time around, staff wanted to put a summertime spin on the proceedings. When locals or out-of-towners think of summertime in northern Michigan, which menu staples bring back the memories of long, hot days in July and August? Four dishes made cut, with readers weighing in on must-try summer standards to add to the Menu of northern Michigan’s Iconic Dishes.

So what beloved classics made the cut? (Hint: One of them is pictured here.) Find the complete list in this week's issue of the Northern Express, available to read online or at one of nearly 700 spots in 14 counties across northern Michigan.
