While Chef Les Molnar doesn't make house calls, he does have some professional advice to offer any brave soul firing up the grill for a cookout this sweltering (and potentially rainy) Independence Day.
Molnar is the man in front of the stove at Green Dot Stables, which opened in April in the Corktown neighborhood of Detroit after the previous owners closed their dive bar. Now, new owners Jacques and Christine Driscoll have taken it up a notch, serving an ultra-affordable menu of innovative sliders, sides and fries, with many ingredients sourced locally, along with tasty brews and cocktails.
The sliders at Green Dot Stables stray far from the ordinary, everything from au poivre to a take on PB and J, but Molnar also has advice for the classic burger.
"The simpler, the better," he said.
Green Dot Stables is closed for the Fourth of July holiday but will be back to regular hours the following day. Below, check out some more grilling tips from Molnar.
