August 11, 2011


This summer I’m on a mission to explore uncharted territory in my own backyard, and

improve Michigan’s economy one purchase at a time.

The strategy is simple. Visit 10 places I’ve never been before…just because, I’ve never been.

Next on my list: 22 Vines & Wines Cafe & Market

I arrived at 22 Vines & Wines Cafe & Market in the middle of lunch hour. All five of the booths

were full and the owner, Rich Van Steenis was scurrying about filling water, taking orders and

delivering hot food from the kitchen. Wouldn’t you know they were short staffed and Rich was

the only waiter.

As I waited for a friend to join me I was able to scan the tables and soak up the amazing smells

wafting from the little kitchen in back. A Thai chicken pizza was delivered to guests at the

table across from me, carried in on a wooden plank. The smell was fantastic...

The cows probably wouldn’t recognize the milking area anymore.

Nor would Rich Van Steenis’s former clients recognize him.

Van Steenis, a former real estate developer and community planner, has

developed his own property at the Hilltop shops just off

M-22 south of Suttons Bay. Home over the years to various entities, now it

boasts a unique restaurant combining Thai food, pizza and more: 22 Vines

and Wines Cafe and Market…
