Thanks to its award-winning wines and talented local chefs, Traverse City enjoys an international reputation as a place of surprisingly sophisticated food and drink.
For two years in a row, Midwest Living has listed Traverse City among its Five Top Food Towns, and Bon Appetit has listed it as one of America’s Top Five Foodie towns.
Our eclectic cuisine borrows freely from other regional styles and relies heavily on imagination, boldness and spunk. Capitalizing on fresh ingredients from nearby farms, forests, lakes, streams and orchards our restaurateurs seem to be on a mission to showcase the best of what the area has to offer.
And what could go better with all this culinary bounty than a fine wine? The beautiful Leelanau and Old Mission peninsulas are dotted with vineyards and award-winning wineries that have established a firm reputation for crisp, intensely flavorful wines.
