Readers' Choice

23825 John R Rd., Hazel Park; 248-398-4300;

This category seems almost to have been invented for the culinary overachiever behind Mabel Gray and the Root. As we detailed in a 4,800-word cover story last year, Rigato establishes relationships with old-fashioned family farms, urban greenhouse gardeners, small beekeepers, cutting-edge aquaculture operations, local milk suppliers, and specialty meat packers to produce food that's intimately connected to the land and the people who love it.
