Not a ‘Single Disappointing Item’ at Katoi and More Intel

Plus, critics weigh-in on Rusted Crow Detroit and Eve the Restaurant

Michelle and Chris Gerard

WEEK IN REVIEWS — Critic Mark Kurlyandchik gives Katoi positive feedback with a healthy dose of advice in his latest review. “This level of care is rare for any restaurant and helps explain why across five separate visits I didn’t try a single disappointing item,” he writes. “If the food weren’t so good, I might also take greater issue with an attitude of self-importance that pervades some of the restaurant’s messaging, which is so unlike the personality of the low-key [chef Brad] Greenhill.” [Freep]

THE CRITICS — Of the Cheeto burger at downtown newcomer Rusted Crow Detroit, Molly Abraham says she “liked it a lot.” The critic adds, “Sandwiches are imaginative too, typified by the oyster po’boy on a grilled baguette, and the Cuban with ham, roast pork and Swiss on grilled bread.” Serena Maria Daniels hiked out to Ann Arbor for a visit to revived Eve Aronoff concept eve the restaurant. “The new eve carries a number of classics, including a delectable plate of curried mussels.” She continues: “Soaked in a rich, non-traditional curry sauce and served with a thick hunk of rustic bread for dunking, you'll be eagerly slurping it up as soon as it hits the table.” [Detroit News/Metro Times]
