Our GM, Ryan Gillies, recently sat down with ClickOnDetroit's Matt Giles to talk about Ann Arbor, Logan's cuisine, and running a restaurant with his brother, Chef Thad.

Happy Birthday, Logan!
It hardly seems possible, but our little restaurant is turning 13 on November 17th. We’d like to think we're starting to get the hang of this. It certainly has been humbling. What an amazingly eye-opening experience it has been to share the intimate lives of the people of Ann Arbor. It's a gift to be with you in the best of times and, also, sometimes, in the worst.
Thank you for being a part of this amazing cultural tapestry that you call Logan, but we call work. Let us express our forever appreciation for your continued support, you're absolutely the reason we're still privileged to be here.
We’re now on RESO
Hello to everyone looking for us on Open Table! We’re still here, but we’ve moved, at least online. We now are on RESO! It’s a new internet company that reserves tables, and we think it's a better fit for small, independent restaurants like ours. We expect you’ll find it equally convenient, and reservations already made through Open Table have been transferred to our new system and will be honored. Visit us at logan-resturant.com/reservations to book a table right on our website!

The holidays are here, and the end of the term is approaching. Don’t forget Logan offers gift certificates for any amount. It’s the perfect gift! They fit anyone; they aren’t perishable, and you can buy them while you’re enjoying dinner here. Such a deal! Or, you can do it from home, in your pajamas if you’d prefer. Visit logan-restaurant.com/gift-certificates or call us: (734) 327-2312. It’s that easy…
With the change in season, and new items on the menu, it’s time to get some fresh selections for our wine list! New vintages from some of our favorite producers are finally available again, with wines from Sicily’s Arianna Occhipinti, Tuscany’s Bibi Graetz, the Rhône Valley’s Saint-Damien, among others. New finds are coming in from Spain, Argentina, Italy, California, France, etc. practically daily this time of year. Find out what you’re missing!
New Menu Items!
The season is changing, and it’s time to update our menu! Chef Thad has been working diligently to create several totally new dishes, such as a feta cheese and cherry salad, dressed with an herbed lemon vinaigrette, and garnished with duck cracklings. There is a completely new salmon entrée, utilizing Scottish salmon, bamboo-scented rice, brown butter-lime broccolini, and an amazing sauce of miso and Korean mustard.
Quail was added to our menu, served with a stunning roasted chicken-black garlic reduction sauce, miso-chili braised rapini, seared oyster mushrooms, and gruyere mashed potatoes.
There’s a new vegan dish, Samosas; crispy pastry pockets, filled with potatoes, preserved lemon, peas, and caraway seeds, served with a roasted eggplant, tamarind, and chick pea sauce.
All have been well received so far, and we have been coming up with some great wine pairings to accompany them. In addition to these new items, Chef has also redone several existing dishes, such as the gnocchi, the short ribs, and our shrimp entrée, and added new items to the offering of sides, as well. There’s so much to check out!
Chef’s Garden Spot
Though this has been a kind of slow growing season thus far this year, the late, unseasonably warm conditions are helping to make up lost time. Great heirloom tomatoes and peaches have been coming in, and we look forward to some autumnal bounty. Next month, we are planning to do a dinner event centering on the garden; keep reading our newsletters for details!
September. A new school year has begun, and Ann Arbor’s seasonal cycle resets. It’s always bittersweet to see summer go, but September nights are just right for dining al fresco — especially since we haven’t had the most ideal summer so far for consistent outdoor dining. As we gear up for football games and the changing colors of autumn, enjoy the fleeting beauty of now. Our Endless Summer dining event lasts through Saturday, September 30.
A Celebration of Californian Wines
California: the state’s name evokes glamor and style. Endless beaches, ocean waves, movie stars, world-class vineyards. Join us as we explore some of the very best wines California has to offer, Logan-style. We’ve carefully put together a special selection of wines that are exciting, exceptionally food friendly, and show a side of California you rarely see. We're presenting them by the glass or bottle, or paired as a flight of five wines to accompany our Chef’s Choice Tasting Menus.
Five-course tasting menu, highlighting the best of Californian Wines
Available throughout the month of September
Chef’s Garden Spot
Remember, it's still summer after all, and summer means gardening. We're excited! Chef’s garden has come along beautifully, and we're starting to reap the first produce of the season. We’ve harvested incredible summer squash and baby turnips already. Heirloom tomato season is upon us and we’re pulling our own mozzarella for Chef’s signature Caprese Salad. It’s not something to miss!
