I am a pro when it comes to navigating metro-Detroit’s hottest spots for food and drinks. My lifestyle blog, j’adore Detroit is a guide for readers to keep a pulse on the city. J’adore Detroit has turned from a passion project to a media source with a fresh take on the reemerging city.
I am known to be first on the scene to the city’s newest places for food and drinks. I even took this love to another level with opening my own Mexican restaurant, Alley Taco, in the heart of midtown.
What I love most about food and drinks is that they are often at the center of gathering with friends, laughing, dates and intimate conversations. Knowing how to navigate the city’s options will leave you with a limitless amount of options to perfectly match the occasion or your mood.
