Best Restaurants in Downtown Lansing
I moved to Downtown Lansing last October, and a little over a month later all the restaurants were shut down for indoor dining due to the Michigan order. Now I did do some carryout, but it was not the same for me. I really enjoy going out to dinner with friends, and to be honest, I don't mind going by myself. So now that restaurants are open, I plan on going out to dinner, and of course following all the safety guidelines.
Downtown Lansing has so much to offer restaurant-wise. I am finally able to venture out and explore all the fine cuisine in the area. Plus there are some cool bars downtown. Here are a few I have enjoyed: The Nuthouse, The Lansing Brewing Company, Stober's Bar, and the Tin Can Bar which has a Chicago beer I love called "Old Style."
In the months to come, I plan on trying Yelp's top 10 restaurants in Downtown Lansing;
- Bowdies Chop House
- Midtown Brewing Company
- Soup Spoon Cafe
- Choupli Wood Fired Kabob
- La Cocina Cubana
- Zaytoon Mediterranean
- Goodfella's Bagels
- Good Truckin' Diner
- Lansing brewing company
Now, I've tried the Soup Spoon Cafe, and it was awesome. I also was at the Lansing Brewing Company a few times which had great food and a great staff. The rest on the list I have not tried. I am looking forward to dining at the other 8 in the top 10.
Restaurants are now open at 25% capacity and have a curfew of 10 PM. But with the declining numbers in COVID-19 in Michigan, let's stay optimistic. We will be back to normal soon.
