Northern Michigan Restaurants:  Stafford’s Pier, 102 E. Bay Street, Harbor Springs, 231.526.6201; Stafford’s Weathervane, 106 Pine River Lane, Charlevoix, 231.547.4311

Pick your Northern Michigan seascape: the placid channel between Lakes Michigan and Charlevoix outside the Weathervane window, or the lacy gray (in March) of Little Traverse Bay at the foot of the Pier in Harbor Springs (north of Petoskey). At either Stafford’s eatery treat yourself to the Quintessential Seafood Trio: Danish shrimp, scallops royale and crab legs. The $29.95 special honors 50 years of Stafford’s hospitality. Cheers!
