The best dish on the menu and why:
Field & Fire makes THE BEST croissants! One of my favorites is the ham and cheese variety which starts with the original, then fills them with Michigan-raised, all-natural ham and a blend of cheddar and parmesan reggiano cheeses. So delicious! Field & Fire is committed to Michigan through and through. The owner got his start at Zingerman's Deli in Ann Arbor, then took his passion across the state to Grand Rapids. They source as many of their ingredients as possible locally and have a real heart for community and their bakery family. They really deserve to win!
