Table No. 2

A couple of weeks ago, my Main Breezy, LeAnne tags me in a post about Table No. 2, a white linen American restaurant on Livernois and Clarita in Detroit! I simply asked, “when are we going?”

Now, the week leading up to Easter 2019 was like a marathon for me. Crazy busy. On Monday, April 22, 2019, after I proclaim how tired I am, LeAnne reminds me that we have dinner reservations. I exhale and ask, “are we committed or can we reschedule?” Well, we were committed and I’m so glad we were!

From the moment you walk in the door, the decor is classy and the hostesses are polite with great smiles. We are seated and Co-owner and Chef Omar Mitchell asks if we were cold and closes the door-wall. Our server, had so much personality and life!  

So, here’s what we ordered:

Chicken satay

Jumbo crab cake


Table side bananas foster (which co-owner and Chef Shimar Mitchell made for us. 

Table No. 2 has personality, and so much of it. The menus are tablets. The centerpieces and chandeliers captivated me. I’m an aesthetics person. I love pretty things. The coziness and intimate setting allows you to relax and experience fine dining!

There was no food left behind. Everything was magnificent and flavorful! As we were eating dessert, I look out toward Livernois and told LeAnne that I forgot where we were! I’ll definitely be back! 

I wish them much success at Table No. 2! 

Tulip Time 2019 in Holland, MI

When your people know you, they know you. My niece-daughter, Brandi, knows that I LOVE flowers. Every summer we are on a mad hunt buying, planting and trying to make the perfect arrangements. So, when Brandi got wind of Tulip Time 2019 in May, she said, “I wish you could come up next weekend to go to Holland for the Tulip Festival.” That simple statement was all I needed! I arranged my schedule to make it happen!

My word for 2019 is “Go!”

So, I went with no expectations. I find that allows me to walk into an atmosphere and be engulfed in it. The beauty disarmed and sent me into the fairy tale land that I often live in. I loved how the streets were lined with tulips and strategically arranged. There were Dutch dancers, artisan makers and entertainment acts along with a parade that showcased the culture. It’s so hard to put this experience into words. I hope you enjoy the pictures. I am definitely looking forward to attending Tulip Time in the future.
