Art And Soul: 'The Culinary Arts' With Lisa Barry And Jessica Webster

May 5, 2016

In our next edition of Art and Soul, we're joined by Jessica Webster, statewide life and culture reporter for MLive Media Group. She's also the host of "The In Crowd"  on 89.1 WEMU (heard Sunday afternoons from 3:00-5:00pm).

Spring has sprung and change is in the air. We're already salivating at all the great options being offered across southeast Michigan this summer. Check out what's going on around town.


What's old is new again! The Old Pretzel Bell restaurant which was a big part of the Ann Arbor restaurant scene from the 1930's until the 1980's has reopened in a new location in downtown Ann Arbor at Main Street and Liberty.

Now that it's May, Mark's Carts has opened for the season in Ann Arbor.  There are a few new food vendors including "Pita Cruiser" and a new seafood cart complete with lobster rolls called "Seafood Driven."

Local coffee company RoosRoast is about to add a new second location on Liberty Street in downtown Ann Arbor.  Jessica adds that she is a big fan of owner John Roos not just for the coffee but she says he "brings a spirit of community wherever he goes."

Highlights

It's also time for the Ann Arbor farmer's markets to expand their hours for the season.

The Ypsilanti "Growing Hope" downtown food market is also re-opened for the season.
