Karen and I are trying to make dinner plans for our anniversary and we end up finding the situation still hasn't changed since last year. Has anyone else ever noticed that there is a lack of restaurants that fall into the red area? If your goal is to go somewhere nice to eat, you don't really want to go to Applebees and sit next to someone there to watch the Red Wings. Yet, look for anything nicer and you're paying $40 a plate. Somewhere in the area, there must be a restaurant that is nicer than Olive Garden (though I'm a fan of TOG) but not as fancy as The Chop House. We took a drive out in Dexter yesterday and saw a place that may prove promising. Perhaps Depot Town has something as well.
