Local Eats: Grand Blanc’s Grafted Root Eatery features home cooking and a full bar

GRAND BLANC, MI — For the past six years, Michele Matthews has crafted her business to simulate the same atmosphere of her home: a cozy feel with mix-and-match chairs, hearty meals and an array of alcoholic beverages.

Grafted Root Eatery in Grand Blanc is known for its locally sourced ingredients and meals from scratch.

“It’s basically home cooking,” said Matthews. “I was a stay at home wife and mom before I opened up this. So everything is basically how I cooked at home and I was raised to cook everything from scratch, not pre-processed. I try to buy as much local as I can.”
