Streetside Grille’s The Streetside

Bottoms Up
By Lynda Wheatley | May 14, 2022

Doesn’t matter if Streetside Grille’s glass garage doors are rolled up or down: Sipping the Suttons Bay bar and eatery’s signature cocktail makes you feel like you’re on a spring picnic. Bubbly club soda and sweet Chambord mingle with a generous shot of our favorite botanically bodacious gin, Hendrick’s, in the Streetside ($10). Hendrick's floral, juniper, and citrus notes always strike right on the tongue but seem to come to the forefront here when sitting pretty with Chambord’s sweet and a squeeze of tart lemon. We paired ours with the day’s special, a triple-play plate of very generously filled and flavorful fish tacos. If you’re not lucky enough to show up on a day they do, go for the also-picnic-perfect BLT, which holds a heap of bacon stacked so high that not one in our group managed more than half in one sitting. Find Streetside Grille at 111 N. St. Joseph St. in Suttons Bay. (231) 866-4199,
