The Chef’s of the Holly Hotel begin each day contacting purveyors from all over the world. Fresh Ono, Tuna and Rainbow Runner fish are flown in from Hawaii. Game is ordered from Montana or Texas. Chicken is ordered from Indiana, direct from purveyors that specialize in free-range products. Produce is delivered three times a week from Detroit’s Eastern Market. Regional products, like Michigan morel mushrooms and fiddlehead ferns, are ordered in season from long-established Michigan vendors.


All for good reason. The “Signature” portion of the dinner menu is virtually unchanged from 1979, allowing our long-term customers the consistency of always having “their favorites” available.
