    One of the best souring houses around. Make sure you have time to sample a few beers because they are tasty. The food is also good gastropub style fair.

    Where do I even begin with Jolly. My ALL-time favorite restaurant in Ann Arbor! I will miss it so much now that I've graduated. Truffle fries are a MUST. Only annoyance: no reservations or call ahead.
