Michigan restaurants offering new options for last-minute holiday gifts

Gifts include gift cards, wine and food

With time running out and if you still need some last-minute Christmas gifts, local restaurants may have what you need.

With indoor dining still closed, restaurants are struggling. But they’re offering more than just food.

“We’re just getting by, we’re keeping a small crew fully employed,” said said Greg Mudge with Mudgie’s Deli. “It’s really easy to walk in here and grab a last minute gift you can also order online and pick it up curbside if you’d like to.

Mudgie’s Deli and Bar in Corktown offers a large selection of wine. You can even purchase a ready-made meal packaged and ready to re-heat or freeze for later.
