This place continues to amaze. The menu changes monthly give or take and every time they seem to out do themselves. If you are not moving forwards you are moving backwards and this place never disappoints.

Inventive, delicious food. Friendly, well-informed service. Expensive, yet extremely well-curated wine list. Delicious, creative cocktails. What else can I say? Mabel Gray is the best restaurant in Michigan. If it's your first visit, do the tasting menu. It might seem expensive if you're not used...More

Others live to eat! There is food and there is food experience. This is both. Filled with character this tiny diner-inspired restaurant is an experience. We were fortune to spend a few moments with Jim the owner. Cutting edge, brash, forward thinking, opinionated, lastly pushing...More

Mabel Gray is THE place to go for cuisine that you can't find anywhere else. There isn't even a menu online, since it changes everyday! If you are food adventurous, I would say get your butt there! Even if you aren't, get your butt there!...More
