Best Of 2014: Place to Shoot Pool

Best Of 2014: Bar Patio

Best Of 2014: Restaurant for Tourists

According to online billiards trivia gathered by "Dr. Dave" Alciatore, the largest pool hall ever built — a place called "The Recreation," in 1920s Detroit — held 103 tables, plus 88 bowling lanes, 20 barber chairs and 14 cigar stands. Yeah, but ... did it have a sweet patio looking down on the streets below, its own slate of brews and lemon Tabasco fried chicken? Then let's give some credit to Phantom Canyon, which does have all of the above, as well as a downtown location and responsive wait staff that help make it your favorite place to bring out-of-town guests. Plus, I'll gladly settle for "just" 13 tables when I also get a lively happy hour (3 to 6, seven days a week) and no rogue hairs from a barber's chair floating in my beer. — Kirk Woundy

Bites 2013: Blonde Ale & Smoked Gouda Soup

Like the Iron Throne in Game of Thrones or one of those geek-ass elven blades from The Lord of the Rings, this soup is legend. It's not so much that wars have been fought over it (aside from the personal mental battle of resisting eating it all the time) as the fact that it's pretty much the greatest beer-cheese soup in the known realm. With its Queen's Blonde Ale base and thick cheese, it's so rich it's royal. ($3.25 cup/$5 bowl)
