Kruse and Muer on Main – Rochester, Michigan

Kruse and Muer On Main Rochester Michigan 1Visit the posh, beautifully lit heart of downtown Rochester on winter nights and sample one of our favorite Oakland County dinner destinations, Kruse and Muer on Main, one of six local restaurants in the Kruse and Muer family that also includes Rochester Chop House just across the street.

First, blow off your Atkins diet and indulge in their succulent and unique bread service, delivered to your table in a plain white paper bag, warmed and topped with poppy seeds.

For your second course, enjoy a cup or bowl of Charley’s Chowder, a “tomato-based fish chowder made famous at the original Charley’s Crab on Pine Lake“.

Kruse and Muer On Main Rochester Michigan 4Flesh out your flavor profile with a glass of “R Collection by Raymond”, a California Merlot with tannins and a peppery finish that drinks more like a Cabernet.

Pair your hearty red with one of our two recommended entrees. The Six-Ounce Jack Daniel’s Peppercorn Twin Filets come topped with a peppercorn cream sauce and crispy onion strings, plus cheddar hash potatoes and a fresh vegetable on the side. Ours was a perfect Kruse and Muer On Main Rochester Michigan 5medium-rare and mouthwatering to the last bite. The Lobster & Shrimp Fettucine ala Creme is prepared with tomato basil fettuccine and topped with diced tomatoes. Its delicious saffron cream sauce is similar to an alfredo, if not richer, and they don’t skimp a bit on the meat. It’s a sizable and super-filling dish that will afford you an excellent opportunity to make your co-workers envious of your overly extravagant and aromatic seafood pasta lunch on the following day.

Kruse and Muer On Main Rochester Michigan 6Order yourself a coffee or a second round of R Collection and then finish off with martini glass sized serving of decadent chocolate mousse topped with fresh whipped cream and a tidbit of white and dark chocolate flair.

Make a smarmy, predictable joke to the waitperson about being carted to your car in a wheel-barrow, and then tip him or her well for the quality service we’re pretty certain you’ll receive. ~I♥DM
