Food Adventure // La Feria in Detroit, Michigan

La Feria in Detroit, Michigan // Dula Notes

New restaurants are popping up and thriving all over Detroit and La Feria’s promise of authentic Spanish tapas really got me excited. I put it on my mental list of places to visit asap. They opened in bustling Midtown Detroit back in November next to a new gelato place, Melt and my favorite Detroit shops, Nora, Hugh, Shinola, City Bird and Nest.

Since it is only a four hour drive from our home, it was easy to get around and investigate all of the great tips our friends and family offered. Traverse City shares the same climate as the Rhine region of Germany and produces wonderful Rieslings along with other fantastic wines. We enjoyed some wonderful dry Rieslings for those of you that find them too sweet for your taste. We had some bold reds, unique Rosé and fantastic Pinot Grigio and… Continue reading
