Cross-Rhodes (address and info)
913 Chicago Ave
A word from Ders: "Get the gyro plate. There's secret fries underneath."
Come to the unassuming Greek diner for caramelized beef and lamb carved from the spit, but stay for the double-fried, steakhouse-style Maria fries topped with a lemon white wine vinaigrette and feta cheese.

Sarkis Cafe (address and info)
2632 Gross Point Rd
A word from Ders: "Best place to go at 6am if you've been out all night. Get the Loretta sandwich. Some hash browns. A Sunkist. Game over."
Sure, you could attempt to redeem a disaster of a night the next morning with a Disaster Special omelet (Armenian sausage, cheese, green peppers) or you could just own up to your bad decisions, cure that hangover with Sarkis' signature French bread sandwich and live your life Loretta-full instead of regrettable.
