Cool food tour! That's interesting Detroit has a bunch of Coney Island restaurants. What makes for a Coney Island restaurant? I went to Coney Island earlier in the week...


Great post Cathy! Quite ironic about your recent version of "city chicken". Coat hooks are pretty rare here too. Interesting to see the Polish "spelling" versus the pronunciation.

By the way, thanks for putting in links about these places and the origins of these dishes (very helpful). I always enjoy learning about regional foods.


It's sort of mentioned in the wikipedia link, general it's a restaurant that almost always has a counter, where most people sit first (I've seen so many empty tables and people waiting for the counter) serves Loose and Coney and where most people sit, eat and go. Not very fancy.

I was sad about the City Chicken, cc, even though it tasted good. Tobey's 19th Hole has hooks for coats (or maybe hats?) at every booth. It is odd to try to explain some foods or regional specialties; I know people look at me funny when I say I like fish tacos.

Great post. I thought schools began in Michigan on Labor day because it's the first day of winter up there.


Another nice one Cathy. Comfort food at its best.


Thank you, ed. Between Labor Day and middle of September, it does get very cold...we put away summer clothing, pull out sweaters and sweatshirts and then for about three days, "Indian Summer" happens and it's a miserable heat. Memories of the way I grew up...always keeping additional clothing and an umbrella in the car.

Thanks Dennis. Typical foods for me (other than showing boiled pierogi and fresh kielbasa). There are a couple of other places to eat that were special; I hope to go back on a real vacation and be able to share those.
