Mark Kurlyanchik’s 12 Best Dishes of 2019
“For my money, Grandma Bob's in Corktown offers one of the best pies in the area. I can't vouch for the coney pizza or the other out-there toppings, but the classic pepperoni is nothing short of revelatory thanks to the artisan pepperoni made by Bob's sister charcuterie brand Gratiot Avenue Provisions. (Both are projects of the Detroit Optimist Society hospitality group.) Made from heritage Michigan pigs, the pepperoni is sliced thin and packed with intense pork flavor — unlike any pepperoni I've ever encountered on a pie. The dough, too, contains a perfect balance of crisp and chew.”
