City Park Grill's Biscuits

Tastemaker
By Lynda Wheatley | March 2, 2019

You might credit the low-carb wave for your whittling your middle, but we blame it for washing away the white-flour wonder of a pre-meal bread basket. That’s why we’re especially grateful for the City Park Grill, which hasn’t served a single meal in more than 20 years without first delivering to its guests the best biscuits in America. Literally. The digital magazine Only in Your State (www.onlyinyourstate.com) recently named City Park’s “buttery, flaky, incredibly delicious … perfectly baked” biscuits No. 1 in the nation. We not only concur, we recommend you get your own buns there to try some soon. Find City Park Grill  at 432 E. Lake St., Petoskey. (231) 347-0101, www.cityparkgrill.com.
