It’s the perfect time of year to head to a dinner and a show around Detroit, and recently I discovered an absolutely amazing restaurant –  Chartreuse.  Chartreuse Kitchen and Cocktails is located in Detroit and features a menu that changes daily based on the seasonality and availability of the freshest local ingredients. Two things I really loved about Chartreuse is they do not have a freezer, therefore everything is super fresh, and the restaurant is created to order a few plates and share them.  What did we order? Short Ribs (special of the day), Seedling Farms Pears, Madagascar Vanilla Pudding and Key Lime Pot De Crème.   Let me tell you, the food was insanely fresh and the flavors were out of this world. The Madagascar Vanilla Pudding was probably one of the best desserts I have had in a really long time. I highly recommend checking out Chartreuse even if it’s just for dessert.
