Reward our local heroes — Keep Growing Detroit, the urban agriculture organization behind the Garden Resource Program and Grown in Detroit, provides a list of restaurants that procure their fresh ingredients from the city’s small growers. Generally, it’s a good thing when an eatery is just as serious about the way its food tastes as it is about its origins. Restaurants include Astro Coffee (2124 Michigan Ave., Detroit; 313-638-2929), Brooklyn Street Local (1266 Michigan Ave., Detroit; 313-262-6547), Colors Restaurant (311 E. Grand River Ave., Detroit; 313-496-1212), Foran’s Grand Trunk Pub (612 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-961-3043), Mudgie’s Deli (1300 Porter St., Detroit; 313-961-2000), Russell Street Deli (2465 Russell St., Detroit; 313-567-2900), Supino Pizzeria (2457 Russell St., Detroit; 313-567-7879), and Topsoil (inside MOCAD, at 4454 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-832-6622).
