The April Hit List: Rooster & Owl, 2Fifty, Ivy and Coney, Oyster Oyster, and More


Just over a year has passed since initial pandemic lockdowns. Vaccinations are in full swing, the curfew on alcohol consumption has been pushed back to midnight, the weather is already teasing summertime temperatures; suddenly staying in for a tray-bake dinner feels untenable.

So opt for afternoon margaritas and croquetas at Serenata, and perhaps foie gras terrine and shiitake larb for your tasting menu at Rooster & Owl. Or maybe Flintstones-sized barbecued beef ribs from 2Fifty are more your speed. And celebratory Detroit pizzas over at Ivy and Coney’s rooftop — with digestif Malort shots to usher in the better days to come — seems very necessary. All this, and more, on your April Hit List.
