My Coney Island Baby
Hey readers, hope everyone is having a great Friday! For the next few months, I'm going to use Fridays to highlight a Detroit restaurant and show you some of the people you know from their blogs and also from my writing. For the first Friday, I've decided to use this picture of me and the Walking Man, Mark Durfee for those in the know, at a Coney Island, the greatest of all Detroit diner institutions. Aretha Franklin recommended it as "the chili drips off the dog." She, I think, would know what good food is along with being able to do a killer version of "Dr. Feelgood" and no, I do not mean the song made famous by Motley Crue. When I got to Detroit, everyone told me that I had to have a Coney dog. I did not take to the practice immediately, but with so much that is good, you develop a taste. And truth be told, I love almost all food except vegetables. Okay, I can eat some vegetables, but it's tough for me. Working on it. If any of you Detroiters have a restaurant you want to see on Food Friday with Michelle, let me know.
