I stumbled upon a great restaurant review in last weeks The Saginaw News. It was well written by Sue White and the subject restaurant was Shari at the Willard Hillton(Shari).
If you are not familiar with Shari, you have missed out on an incredible dining experience. Its sits in the middle of a cornfield in Auburn, Michigan. From the location and the looks you would not think that inside are four certified chefs that are just waiting to make your taste buds sing. Serving up tastes from around the world, Shari’s buys what is in season and uses local products when they can.

The building, the “Willard Hillton”, was built in the 1800’s was once known as the Beaver Hotel. Willard is said to be a ghost town and some residents nicknamed it the “Willard Hillton” many years ago and the name stuck. Also in the building at one time was a jail and a saloon. The jail cells are now the wine cellar. Shari’s is sure to please and part of what makes Mid Michigan great.
