POLITICS — Taco trucks or rather the presumed fear of a taco truck on every corner, has become a central election issue over the past few weeks with one local restaurant on wheels, Tacos El Caballo going viral after it made bank parking outside of a Trump rally. Now, the Clinton campaign is getting in on the Guac the Vote bandwagon. On Friday the HRC supporters will set up tasty voter registration sites at eight southwest Detroit taco trucks.

POP-UPS — A new dinner series will shine a light on locally grown ingredients and the “lack of black chefs at notable restaurants in Detroit.” Developed by Revolver’s Peter Dalinowski and Food Lab Detroit’s Devita Davison, Detroit Grown & Made’s first dinner was hosted last Sunday and featured chef Maxcel Hardy. Keep an eye out for upcoming DG&M dinners at the Revolver website. [Detroit News]

WEEK IN REVIEWS — Critic Molly Abraham reports that chef Paul Grosz’s (Also of The Stand Gastro Bistro) fine dining New Center restaurant Cuisine has still got it awarding the eatery four stars. Serena Maria Daniels also gets fresh taste of Woodbridge newbie Pie-Sci pizzeria: “Our favorite was the Fennel Countdown, with red sauce, garlic oil, Italian sausage, oven roasted fennel, caramelized onions, sautéed bell peppers, and mozzarella.” [Detroit News/Metro Times]
