This Is TASTE 262: Lyndsay C. Green

Lyndsay C. Green is the restaurant critic at the Detroit Free Press, and she is tasked with shining a light on one of America’s most vibrant and also misunderstood food cities. It’s quite the job, and Green, a native of New York City, has embraced the role to its fullest. In this episode, we talk about Detroit’s many diverse neighborhoods and how the city’s food scene was built by immigrants from Mexico, Greece, China, and the Middle East. I ask her about her most recent top ten restaurants list, and we dig into her food writing process and style. It’s really great getting to know Lyndsay, and I hope you enjoy this conversation.

Also on the show, Aliza and Matt talk about what’s interesting and exciting, including the Kreung Cambodian pop-up, the recent Borscht Belt Festival, Jamie Oliver’s new TV channel, OddFellows Ice Cream, and save us the plums!
