When owner Shellie Lewis took over this Greektown staple last year, a Michigan-made menu of dishes made with organic, natural products was a conscious push. That means using bread from Detroit-based Avalon Bakery, pasture-raised, grass-fed Michigan beef from C. Roy & Sons, and RBGH-free, all-natural cheese from Farm Country. That means eating a cheeseburger at the Old Shillelagh is a vote of support for Michigan's local food systems (all while helping you recover from one too many shots of whiskey, we bet).
