Now On Twitter

Filed under: Site News — dkastner @ 10:20 pm

I’ve been posting plenty of food-related posts to my own Twitter account, but I figured it was time to start posting them to an Eat! Lansing twitter account.  Twitter works well for posting small items that aren’t worth writing a whole blog post about. Follow us!

I’d like to give a warm welcome to Jack Lumanog, the first co-contributor to Eat! Lansing.  Jack moved to the area a year and a half ago, loves food, and has a ready opinion.  Look forward to more updates!

Welcome, Mid-Michigan Dining!

Filed under: Site News — dkastner @ 7:41 pm

There are now three food blogs in the Lansing area (that I know of). This site, Lansing Food News, and now Mid-Michigan Dining.  Also, don’t forget about RestaurantDB.net – birthed in East Lansing (and a sponsor of my soccer team).  

Lansing has a great variety of eateries and it’s exciting to have more and more foodie bloggers.  I can’t possibly eat at and review every restaurant in town by myself!

Now With Microformats!

Filed under: Site News — dkastner @ 8:55 pm

All of the contact information for the restaurants listed on this site will now be encoded in microformat.  This means that not only will data organization sites like Google be able to parse the information better, but you will be able to download the address directly into your address book!

If you are a Firefox user (which you should be, unless you use Safari), you can download a microformats plugin and you will get a drop-down menu at the top of your browser window that will allow you to directly import contact information.

Have fun!

Welcome!

Having recently moved to Lansing from Northern Virginia (the DC area), I’m constantly on the lookout for great places to eat.  Northern Virginia had an amazing cornucopia of restaurants  – Lebanese, Vietnamese, Korean, Salvadoran, Russian, Ethiopian, and Chinese.  My dining hero was Tyler Cowen and his amazing Ethnic Dining Guide. While I’m sure I cannot match Tyler’s knowledge of authentic ethnic foods, I hope that my journey of exploring Lansing’s eateries will help others find the perfect place to eat.

When you think of mid-Michigan, you wouldn’t normally think of culinary variety. However, with a large university and its proximity to Detroit (and its sizable Middle Eastern population), a scratch below Lansing’s surface reveals a health variety of restaurants.

However, this guide will not focus on ethnic food or “indie” restaurants. Even the run-of-the-mill suburbian steakhouses are fair game!
