This week on Art & Soul, I’m joined by food and dining reporter, and host of The In Crowd, Jessica Webster, to talk about what is going on in the culinary scene of Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti.

We discuss how Ann Arbor’s Main Street Café Felix and the iconic Blind Pig music venue are both up for sale.  The Jefferson Market will be under new management soon, as it has been bought by the owners of Mighty Good Coffee.


Ma Lou’s Fried Chicken, whose owner Frank Fejeren was on Art & Soul recently, will be opening on March 3rd.  Fejeren’s food truck Ricewood will also be opening soon.  We also discuss the return of fish fries and popular food trucks in Ann Arbor, most of which are part of Mark’s Carts, which is west of Main street.

March leads us to St. Patrick’s Day, which always has a big turnout in Ann Arbor, especially at Conor O’Neill's, thanks to music, food and beer.
