Three relatively new food businesses — one restaurant and two coffee houses — earned their way onto The Livingston Post’s 2019 Annual Restaurant Poll.
Bourbon’s, a popular Brighton destination specializing in Southern comfort food, craft cocktails and high-end bourbons, also boasts a head chef who appeared in the Gordon Ramsay combat cooking shows “Hell’s Kitchen” and “Hell’s Kitchen All-Stars.” The new addition to the downtown Brighton dining scene placed third for Most Creative Menu and Best Atmosphere.
The two coffeehouses — Brighton Coffeehouse and Theater, a unique business combining caffeine and entertainment, and Black Iron Coffee Roasters in downtown Howell, which specializes in roasting small batch, unique blends of coffee on-site — each earned a spot in the Best Coffee Shop category.
The rest of the winners are:
MOST CREATIVE MENU
BEST FAMILY RESTAURANT
BEST FINE DINING
BEST MICRO BREWERY
BEST HAPPY HOUR
