We explored some of Michigan’s highways and byways. We ended up on US 12 Heritage Route, an east-west corridor, from Detroit to New Buffalo, which leads history buffs and automotive enthusiasts on an adventure through time.
About mid-way, near Jonesville, the family and I decided it was time for lunch. That’s when we discovered Olivia’s Chophouse.
Olivia’s Chophouse serves upscale gourmet meals that include steak and seafood specialties. That said, you’ll find more casual daily specials like Taco Tuesday and Pizza Thursdays.
We had a daily special, house-made red skin potato chips for our appetizer, which resulted from a purchase of too many red skin potatoes, with a house-made ranch dip.
We decided to split an entrée salad, so we chose the Romaine Waldorf. The salad starts with chopped romaine lettuce, tossed with halved purple grapes and cubed gala apples.
I decided on The Conquest sandwich for my entrée. It started with grilled sourdough bread that resulted in a crunchy bite.
For dessert, my daughter had the chocolate peanut butter pie to complete her lunch.
Then, we all enjoyed the entertainment of my Bananas Foster made tableside. The chef designed this recipe for maximum fun with two alcohol additions, resulting in two awe-inspiring flames.
