Sushi among Muslims

December 7
I'm in Dearborn, Mich., which I learned from my taxi driver, a gentleman from the Isa tribe in Djibouti, is the heart of the Detroit area's Muslim community. And the Detroit area's Muslim community is the largest in the country.
So perhaps my colleague and I should have gone out for Middle Eastern food, but my heart was set on a new place called Crave, which serves sushi and stuff and which I felt deserved investigation for the What's Hot section of NRN.
We had roasted baby octopus, seaweed salad and "crêpes Rangoon," a bottle of Washington state Reisling and assorted sushi, selection of which we left up to the chef.
Crave filled up nicely for a Wednesday night in west Dearborn. I'd say it's hot.
