Opened by Atwater Brewery, Atwater in the Park in Grosse Pointe Park is a traditional German biergarten located inside a former church. Servings dozens of Atwater brews, including all their standards, as well as beers brewed on-site exclusively for this location. The biergarten also serves a menu of German-inspired food made from scratch, with items sourced from local suppliers, including all the wurst, schnitzel, kielbasa, pierogi, and potato salad you could possibly want.
Johnny King Noodles serves a pan-Asian menu of noodle specialities. The noodle options are split between those served in broth (shoyu ramen, chicken pho, smoked duck udon) and those served with sauce (pad see ew, gong bao chicken). The broth-based red curry bowl leads the pack, with a spicy fish-flavored broth and pork belly floating on top. Non-noodles sides like bacon fried rice and house-made dumplings should start any meal here.
