For those who can't get enough of Middle Eastern fare, Kabob Kabob in Lathrup Village is a real winner. They've even got delivery here, which is a really nice perk if you happen to live or work in the area. It's also great to pick up some carryout to enjoy on the party bus with all your friends, and Mediterranean food is always so fun to share. The shawarma is some of the best that we have ever tasted, and we really enjoy all of the fresh fruit drinks and smoothies that they offer too. They have excellent garlic sauce here as well, which is always the mark of a great Mediterranean restaurant. The falafel is supremely delicious here too. Everything is highly recommended!

If Greek food is your favorite, Hellenic Restaurant in Lathrup Village is a classic gem that will really get your motor revving! The Greek dressing is what they're known for, so of course you've got to make sure that you order a yummy fresh salad to pour it over. You'll have to control yourself, or you might just succumb to the temptation to slurp that irresistible dressing right off the plate! But save room for the other delights that they offer here, including incredible gyros, yummy chicken and dumpling soup, and of course all of your favorite traditional coney island fare. They do it fast and they do it right. You will be glad that you decided to stop at this place!

Salvatore Scallopini has never let us down. When we're craving a wonderful Italian meal, possibly paired with the perfect wine, this is the place to go. The pasta fresca is a very nice choice here as is the gnocchi, and we love all of the soup and salad options as well. It seems that wine is the obvious choice with Italian fare, but note that they also have a really wonderful selection of beer here with some rarer ones that are tough to find elsewhere. The bar area is great to enjoy a few drinks and even watch the game since they've got a TV. We've been here numerous times over the years and have never had anything less than a top notch dining experience.

Berkley MI 48072
The Berkley Front, located in nearby Berkley, is not just a wonderful bar but also a relaxing lounge and music venue. The location is prime, and there's plenty of space here to kick back and enjoy yourself with friends after a long and tiring work week. The beer selection is superb, and the prices are even more noteworthy! We are lovers of a tall pint of Guinness and that's almost always our go-to beer, but they've always got a huge array to choose from with beers from every category, so even the pickiest beer connoisseur will be happy with the selection. If you love Golden Tee, they've got it here, plus a nice jukebox filled with all our favorite hits. Pool too. Love it!
