Yay! Thanks for not giving up on the blog! I plugged you on Twitter, so maybe you'll clinch a few more readers. ;)

We ate at Roast the night before Thanksgiving last year. Nice room, good food! Everyone deserves credit for an enjoyable experience. It was a "pre-concert" meal, so we didn't have the extra hour to really enjoy the variety of wines and dessert. Next time!

Eli

I was wondering if you'd be willing to recommend the particular range and oven you went with?
Thanks!

michael symon

we went with the electrolux icon line

What a great home kitchen--I love that big sink! (My sink is tiny, ugh... but so is my kitchen.) And congrats on the new restaurant in Detroit. It sounds fab!

beanie

Kitchen looks great! Thanks for coming back!

drago

I'm curious....what's the doodad that looks like a cross between a faucet and a reading lamp to the right of the stove?

Greg

Good to see you back. I had not made my monthly trek to Lolita from Warren in almost 2 months but went last Friday. All I can say if Roast if half as good I will be very impressed. Nothing on Earth is better then the happy hour Lolita Burger. I have converted nearly a dozen people from an hour away that it is the best burger on the planet. For $5. $5. The new kitchen looks fantastic!!

Maria

The kitchen is beautiful! And Roast is fantastic. Been there a few times and it's our new favorite. The atmosphere, the service, the FOOD!

Thanks for bringing new life back to Detroit, and congrats on Restaurant of the Year. Can't wait for the cookbook.

Greg, we'll do a roadtrip to Cleveland for Lola/Lolita if you'll do one here for Roast... : )

p.s. good to see the blog alive again, too...

I am planning on a Roast road trip this summer. I will also hit the casinos whilst I'm up that way too!!! I have been to Lolita around 20-25 times in the last 15 months but have yet made it to Lola. It sounds like a sin, but I get treated so well at Lolita that I feel like I would be cheating on them. It's nice to go in and be known as "the guy who drives from Warren for a burger". LOL!!! Roast does look awesome and it is on my to do list.

Maria

Greg - ok, it's a deal. My roadtrip to Cleveland is on the list. : )

Was there for business a couple years ago was *this* close to Lola, but got overruled. We ate at the House of Blues Foundation Room. Excellent halibut cheeks over gnocchi.

Eli

Oh, and what's the weird sort of arm thingy next to the burners?

Caffeine Addiction - Caffeine Effects and Withdrawal part II
Caffeine addiction shows up when a person cannot stop consuming caffeine in high amounts, causing his/her body to demand the substance and react negatively if that no caffeine is intake. Caffeine may not be addictive in the traditional sense, but the body builds up a tolerance over time; some people find it very hard to function well without at least one cup of strong coffee or tea in the morning. The stimulating effects of caffeine are caused by a central nervous reaction, the heart rate increases, blood vessels expand and the brain receives more oxygen. These caffeine effects can last for up to 8 hours, and once they go off then the body feels extremely lazy and slow as a side effect.
Caffeine addiction can even cause death, mainly because the abuse of any stimulant can cause high blood pressure or and heart problems, so if you abuse of it chances are you put yourself at the highest risk of a heart attack.
You need to be careful with caffeine withdrawal because it affects your overall health and therefore, you need to control your consumption of caffeinated products to prevent your body reactions to caffeine withdrawals. If you need more information about caffeine effects and caffeine addiction symptoms or prevention, please investigate a little further on this topics.

Caffeine Addiction - Caffeine Effects and Withdrawal part I

In this article, we are going to discuss the importance of caffeine addiction and the most important facts about it, as caffeine addiction is something we all must prevent in order for us to be healthy and stay that way for years. We are also going to mention some significant facts about caffeine effects and how caffeine effects may affect our body performance considerably.

Caffeine addiction is one of the most famous types of addictions in the world, just like cocaine and marihuana. Caffeine addiction sometimes has been considered a lie, but it is a really, because caffeine is a stimulant that becomes addictive within a certain period of time. Interestingly, caffeine addiction shows up when you are not expecting it, and it does not necessarily show up because we want to

Pure caffeine is, chemically speaking, a plant-based alkaloid that stimulates the central nervous system in any living creature that intakes it. Biologically, caffeine serves as a form of pest control for certain plants like cacao trees, coffee shrubs, yuba mate and tea trees; it causes insects and other pests to fall down from the effects of over-stimulation. So, just like those pests and insects that I mentioned, caffeine also produces stimulation in our central nervous system, which usually makes us feel more energized, invigorating and active.

There is something called caffeine withdrawal, which refers to the sudden denial of us to consume caffeine, and it happens when regular consumers of caffeinated products may experience painful headaches if the body is denied caffeine. These headaches are caused by excess blood gathering in the area around the brain and sinus cavities, so without the stimulation provided by caffeine, the blood vessels shrink, restricting the blood flow. The traditional cure for caffeine withdrawal is to ingest more caffeine, which is not a healthy solution and this is also why many headache medications contain small amounts of caffeine.... to be continued

What do you think about induction cooktops Michael? Saw the combo unit that Electrolux has. We have had a Dacora electric cooktop and now a Thermadore gas 6 burner range. My husband is pro-gas but I'm the one that has to clean. Induction looks so fast. How does it compare to gas? We hope to build a new home this year and I'm collecting ideas.

We've driven from Cleveland and eaten at Roast twice this year. It's terrific, as was the hotel, and makes for a great weekend getaway.

Emily

Made the trip from Cleveland to Detroit JUST to try out Roast with 8 of my closest friends. We snuck in a little MGM time, but that's beside the point.
We were not disappointed!!
Michael, you've done it again!

celebrity oops

You own great kitchen!
