We’ve brought all the ingredients together:
I am not very familiar with Royal Oak but I know that it is one of the top towns for trying new food trends in Metro-Detroit. I was relieved at first glance that The Morrie is stylish & trendy but still casual that I could easily just stop by for a spur-of-the-moment dinner.
With the pretty bar, ever-evolving beer list, & constant-hand-crafting cocktail menu, I know I can keep coming back for new drinks I won’t find at other places.
I wanted to try all of the fruit flavors in the Train In Vain-B. Side pear & peach martini.
The Morrie not only hand-crafts & creates many of their own drinks, but the craftiness is also evident in the menu selections. In the appetizers I really mostly enjoyed the Kung Pao Cauliflower. The sauce with chili, ginger, sesame seeds, scallions, & sriracha peanuts adds a fun kick to boring vegetables.
For dinner I was particularly drawn to the sandwiches for their homemade breads & sauces. My brisket sandwich had a wonderful mustard spread (& normally I am not a huge fan of deli-style mustard), a fluffy roll, homemade slaw & pickles, & crispy thin fries.
To top off our fun night with desert, I finally settled on bread pudding, which was creamy & crispy & had wonderful sauces of almond, blueberry, pecan, & rum.
Another table favorite was the Butterscotch Creme Brulee, which was completed by a surprise Nutella Macaroon on top!
& by the way, if you order the ice cream sandwich, don’t expect it to be the same as the grocery store.
We were treated to music from Christina & Joey during our visit. You can see the upcoming Detroit-area music dates here.
The Morrie is located at 511 S. Main St. There is a parking lot right next door, or you can easily park in the many parking areas nearby downtown. Next time I come, I want to come for a Sunday brunch.
