Upscale Ann Arbor Restaurant Logan Restaurant
115 W Washington St
Ann Arbor , MI
(734) 327-2312

We describe our style of food as "New American Cuisine", but what does that really mean? For us, it begins with exploiting time-honored restaurant techniques from French cooking, but applying them to the more far-flung culinary influences of contemporary America. Among these influences are Latin America, Europe, and many Asian cultures. We love to use traditional ingredients to create bold flavors, but we also strive for refinement and elegance. With so many different flavors and textures flowing from our restaurants kitchen, our wine list is always expanding and improving in order to allow for some very creative pairings. We acquire new wines almost daily. We place a very high premium on offering high quality, approachable wines from small, independent estates, but we also value affordability. Therefore, we want to make these wines accessible to all of our guests, while we strive to collaborate with talented vintners from all over the world. Here at Logan Restaurant in Ann Arbor, we feel that when the culture and passion of like-minded individuals are expressed, the culminating experiences are truly memorable. However, don't think that we put all of our grapes in one basket. Wine may be the backbone of our beverage revenue, but we also provide a superb selection of bottled beer and spirits, including an exquisite selection of single-malt scotch. Logan Restaurant is the result of its three owners' desire to establish a contemporary and elegant restaurant in Ann Arbor, based on Chef Thad Gillies' interpretation of "New American" cuisine. Named for Thad's son, Logan opened in November of 2004 with the backing of friends and family. Although Logan is quite different from your typical college town restaurant, it was fortunate to receive early press and is proud to have acquired a loyal clientele that has kept Thad's, Ryan's, and Kevin's dream alive. What dream is that? To create a place where restaurants could stretch their creative wings and accomplish all they thought possible, without the competing agendas of exterior ownership. Everyone at Logan Restaurant has a shared faith that there is a segment of the public that will respond and rally to support the independent pursuit of excellence. Today, Logan Restaurant has earned its reputation being one of Ann Arbor's very best restaurants with acclaim for its passionately prepared menu, its excellent selection of boutique wine and spirits, and its warm service consistently demonstrated by their staff.

We are passionate about the fabulous foods found all around America and are dedicated to bringing them to food-loving folk (almost) anywhere. Ever since we first opened the Deli’s doors back in 1982, Zingerman’s has been about getting great-tasting food, fun and educational eating experiences to our guests. We’ve traveled all over the world to find traditional, full-flavored foods to bring back to Ann Arbor. The Roadhouse has allowed us the opportunity to really channel that energy into our own backyards by focusing solely on the amazing array of really good American food that we’ve got right here at home. Since we opened in 2003, we’re more excited than ever about offering you incredible grits from South Carolina, amazingly flavorful pork from the Niman Ranch network of small Iowa family farms, local meat, including beef, pork, lamb and goats, and flavorful heirloom vegetables, from our own Cornman Farms, artisan cheeses, and micro-brewed beers and fine wines from all over the US. And we’re having more fun than ever making full-flavored versions of old-time classics like macaroni and cheese, crab cakes made with real Maryland jumbo lump blue crab, really good fried chicken, Carolina barbecue and darned good corn dogs. As you peruse the menu, don’t hesitate to stop us and ask for a taste of anything you’re wondering about—we’ve taken time to develop every recipe, and we can’t wait to talk to you about it. We hope you enjoy your meal as much as we’ve enjoyed putting it together for you. Sourcing local meat. Preparing barbecue everyday means that we cook with a lot of meat at the Roadhouse and always have used really good stuff like Niman Ranch and chickens from the Amish farmers in Indiana. As time goes on, we have opportunities to develop our connections to the community, and it has become more and more important to contribute to our community in any and every way possible. We’re working hard to create change in our own small piece of the food system. Finding local meat sources means that we’re looking for producers whose passion matches our own. We look for individuals who have the ability to produce really full-flavored meat. We work with them to select the breeds–old breeds–whose flavor profile satisfies our specifications. We then look to ensure that they are fed a natural diet and raised in a sustainable and healthy manner.
