As fashion month comes to a close and the showgoing glitterati recovers from a non-stop jaunt around the runways of New York, London, Milan, and Paris, it seems an oasis of the Midwest was missing from this — and every — fashion calendar. Ann Arbor has never been known as an international fashion capital, and we may never see the day it does. That’s not to say fashion is missing from South campus to Kerrytown — it’s here. We found it.
Despite the requisite college town fixtures of countless pizza joints, Mexican dives and crowded coffee houses, Ann Arbor kind of failed us with the burger options. Blimpy? Too greasy. BurgerFi? Fries, nothing else. Quickie? Not sober. Five Guys? Closed. For the best burger, one must venture past Main Street and between upscale steakhouses for the quirky and quality favorite — Frita Batidos.
