“This place used to be next door to my first apartment on Classon Avenue and was a hole-in-the-wall the size of my armpit. It’s moved to a much larger location and had a major facelift, but what matters has stayed the same: the best, most reasonably priced chicken mole I’ve ever had. They also make an incredible Manhattan.” 736 Franklin Ave.; ChavelasNYC.com

Daniel Caudill picks Bigalora Wood Fired Cucina in Detroit

“I tell my friends to go here for brunch and try the homemade, Nutella-like spread. It’s great with fresh cream and banana on the waffle made with pizza dough. They usually come back to me saying it’s the best thing they’ve ever had.” 711 S. Main St., Royal Oak; Bigalora.com
