THE CHAINS — Detroit's first Applebee's opens Monday in the Meijer complex parking lot on Eight Mile. In a bizarre collaborative twist the restaurant will serve an exclusive brew made by Atwater. It's an ale "with hints of caramel and not too hoppy." [Crain's]

PLYWOOD REPORT — GreenSpace Café throws a bit of shade at its meaty rivals in a recent post. "If we were a burger joint we would be open, but as a gourmet hand crafted restaurant with the finest choice local products prepared to provide unreal tastes and appearances, we have to train a bit harder. This is a marathon, not a 5K, so we will see you soon, but not so soon that our running pants fall off!" Please don't lose your pants. It's just awkward. [Facebook]

THE CRITICS — Serena Maria Daniels suggests a few trends that Detroit should adopt from LA's dining playbook. While we can't really argue with any of them — french dip is delicious — it should be noted that those craving a bacon-wrapped hot dog can head to Imperial for a Sonoran straight away. [Metro Times]
