Foodie News!!!

For those of you not familiar with Northern Lower Michigan please be advised that the Grand Traverse Region is well noted as a resort area and now as a "Food City"!

In a recent (4/12/2010) Traverse City Record-Eagle Food Section newspaper article the following headline appeared: No Surprise - TC is a food city!

Here is the article:

Traverse City is the No. 1 "Surprising Food City" in a survey at "Known as the Cherry Capital of the World, the Lake Michigan resort town of Traverse City does a pretty good job with other foods, too," the entry says.
It cites an Associated Press story by Traverse City-based writer John Flesher, posted at Huffington Post, and Midwest Living magazine's list of best food towns that put Traverse City in second place (after Madison, Wisconsin).
The new survery singles out chef Myles Anton of Stella Trattoria and the wines of the Leelanau and Old Mission Peninsulas.
Other cities rounding out the top 10 are Asheville, NC; Boulder, Colorado; Kansas City, MO; Walnut Creek, CA; Eugene, Oregon; Albuquerque, NM; Withita, Kansas; Logan, Utah; and Pueblo, Colorado.

Our region of Michigan boasts beautiful lakes, shopping destinations, and of course lots of good food and beverages!

Please consider visiting our neck of the woods!
