FORD’S GARAGE

The Taste is in the De­tails. The dé­cor takes you back to the 1920s, when Henry Ford walked these parts, and the menu in­cludes burg­ers like the Model “A” and the Low Carb-ure­tor. Fresh Black An­gus beef topped with ev­ery­thing from arugula to fried egg will make your mouth wa­ter, and the craft beer menu in­cludes names like Kona Big Wave and Goose Is­land 312.
