Sylvia Rector praises Parks & Rec: "I have a delightful new favorite place for breakfast in Detroit," the critic, writes. The restaurant wields a "superpower" in sharing a kitchen with Republic. "Not many diners of its size can bake their own pastries and breads — not at this level, anyway — or make their own chicken and pork sausages, cure their own lamb and pork bacon, turn out their own preserves and pickles, or claim at least 17 of Metro Detroit's best local growers and purveyors as its suppliers." Chef Sarah Welch's menu boasts "some of the most delicious breakfast dishes I've tasted in a long time." Biscuits and gravy, cinnamon rolls, and meat hand pies are among Rector's favorite dishes.

Molly Abraham dines out at Indo in Keego Harbor: "Indo isn't fancy but the fragrant fare that emerges from chef/proprietor Melik Alonzo's kitchen makes up for any perceived lack of atmosphere," Abraham reports. "The native of Java is a meticulous chef who sends out colorful plates of her country's cuisine, bright with precisely cut and pristinely fresh ingredients." The critic recommends getting the full "crash course" in Indonesian cuisine by ordering a multi-course option and sharing with a group. Indo earns a robust three stars. [Detroit News]
