Avalon Cafe and Kitchen

The popular baking company based in Detroit has an Ann Arbor location with a few new and different items. One of those is their braised oxtail French dip (caramelized onion, mushrooms and Havarti cheese on a hoagie roll and served with braising jus). All sandwiches come with a side of shoestring fries or dressed farm greens. Ask about the soup of the day and you’ve got yourself a finger-licking good meal.

Brick’s of Northville

Located in downtown Northville, Brick’s is a crowd-favorite sports bar with great burgers, special entrees and, of course, sandwiches. The French dip sandwich is made with grilled, shaved ribeye steak that is topped with melted swiss cheese and served on a hoagie roll with kettle chips and a side of au jus for dipping. Stop by during lunch or dinner to enjoy this dippin’ good sandwich and a long list of beer on draft and in bottles.

Stella’s Black Dog Tavern

Folks familiar with downtown Plymouth might recognize this gorgeous beauty of a sandwich. The French dip sandwich at Stella’s Black Dog Tavern may sound like a classic recipe (lean roast beef, swiss cheese, grilled onions on a hoagie roll with au jus), but it’s all about taking advantage of the locale. Come in during happy hour or enjoy the Sunday morning Bloody Mary bar to get the most out of this French dip outing.
