125. Traffic Jam and Snug – June 20, 2015 – Detroit, MI

I had a Detroit Day today! And it was amazing. Five new places were visited! The first stop: Traffic Jam and Snug, which I’ve wanted to visit forever. Man, is it old-school looking in there! I didn’t expect it. Bedecked with antique knick-knacks, the windy wood-and-brick interior reminds you – like so many other places in the city – how grandly old Detroit is. But where the inside of the restaurant is old-fashioned-looking, the menu certainly isn’t. Cheers to eclectic offerings such as coconut curry risotto and an amazingly delicious barbecue braised beef brisket panini (try it – you won’t be sorry!) being served rather than the usual rote restaurant fare. The popular Midtown establishment is also a brewery – I had no idea!
