We have done searches for Coney Dogs, BBQ, Ice Cream Parlors, Haunted Houses and Breakfast Joints. What’s next?
GRAND RAPIDS, MI — We’ve finally made up our minds about the next Michigan’s Best project.
In fact, look for the announcement next week (Tuesday, May 28).
In the meantime, send us your best guess on what it will be. Who knows, your idea could inspire our next Michigan’s Best contest!
And earlier this year we completed a search for Michigan’s Best Breakfast Joint.
To answer a few of my questions, we have decided to travel up North, and by that I mean Northern Michigan and the U.P. I’m not sure how we’re going to execute everything, but we’ll find a way.
In order to get my game face on, I visited Anna’s House on Plainfield Avenue in Grand Rapids, which we declared Michigan’s Best Breakfast Joint.
Owner — and foodie — Rean Amato was still beaming from all the recognition, telling me people drive from hours away to check out her restaurant for its signature Hippie Hash or Twilight French Toast.
Her suggestion for our next food search?
“I think we should be utilizing all we have in Michigan,” she said. “Maybe the best Whitefish or something!”
Now, that would be fun. I love fish.
What about you?
Do you think we’re on the search for Michigan’s Best Seafood restaurant?
Use the comment section on MLive.com or send me an email if you want to make a guess or make a suggestion.
As I said, we will make our official announcement on May 28, and then each market will start gathering your comments/nominations on May 29.
Polls will go up May 31.
Visits will be June 10-15. We may start a little earlier to go up North.
Have a great Memorial Day weekend.
