Can I use regular (not Meyer) lemons in the Lemon Tart with Olive Oil (http://food52.com/recipes...)? I have no idea where to get Meyer lemons in Detroit

This recipe does not specify Meyer lemons, just organic ones. So yes, you can use regular lemons.

They're a little out of season here. Even the wal-mart has them in Jan-Feb.
But, I have seen Persian lemons in Middle Eastern stores which have basically the flavor profile as Meyer (if not the exact same thing).
Since Meyer lemons are a mix of lemon and orange: if you wanted a lemony orange slightly flavor I would use one small orange to the remaining lemons in a recipe. I have a Meyer lemon tree! They aren't quite as sour as traditional lemons.
And I know that when Meyers are in season you can find them at Nino Salvaggio's in the Detroit area.
