For Real Detroit Weekly: Boodles

*scratch* <----------that's the sound of me putting another notch in my publication belt. WHO DAT!?!?

My first Clean Plate Club column for Real Detroit Weekly published this week, for Boodles Restaurant in Madision Heights. If I were in the mafia in the '80s, this would be my place! They're keeping traditions alive over there at I-75 and John R, and the food? Fit for a kingpin!

"The slogan at Boodles is “Where East Meets West.” And no, it's not another Asian-fusion joint. It's an old school-style fine dining establishment. Owned by Bruno and Charlotte Ferguson for the 26 years it’s been in operation, Boodles is the kind of place where every customer gets VIP treatment (as it clearly states all over the menu).

'Located at the corner of John R. and 11 Mile Rd., Boodles is the kind of place that remains an out-in-the-open secret, but those in the know are tried-and-true regulars, on a first-name basis with the staff. With their cigar and single-malt scotch menus and their tableside service of Chateaubriand and Bananas Foster, Boodles is one of the last-standing remnants of the three-martini lunch era.."
