Ann Arbor foodies have eagerly followed the career of Tamiko Cowen. She's been the culinary mastermind behind Donburi, the Rubiyat, her namesake restaurant, Tamiko's, and most recently, the Kerrytown Grille. After her longtime business partner Greg Fenerli died in 1994 and the Grille closed, Cowen decided to take some time off. She needed, she says, a break from the restaurant business.
