The Cook’s Crossing – Tonight

The Cook’s Crossing experiments with everything from Haitian to Mexican, German Southern and Vietnamese, perfectly blending innovation and comfort using fresh, seasonal ingredients.

Tonight, they’re popping up tonight at Corktown Tavern with a mess of delicious shrimp dishes inspired by Forrest Gump’s BFF Bubba, who famously called the little crustaceans “the fruit of the sea” for their versatility. From po’ boys to gumbo and spicy pepper fried, they’re pulling out all the stops. Order up some close slaw or plantain chips on the side. Stop by any time after 6 p.m.

Kung Food – Thursday

It is possible to eat healthy without depriving yourself, and Jon Kung – the chef and owner of Kung Food – can show you exactly how to do it. Enjoy five locally sourced, seasonal courses and learn about healthy eating at an intimate dinner at the Kung Food Studio this Thursday at 7 p.m. Jon is preparing the dishes based on the ideal nutritional formula for your daily breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks – including a sweet treat at the end. He’ll also share techniques for replicating the recipes yourself.

There are only 16 seats available for dinner, so you can be sure you’ll get plenty of face time with the chefs and opportunities to ask questions and get ideas for cooking their dishes at home. Tickets cost $100 per person and include wine.

Esto’s Garage – Saturday

Esto is famous for making incredible guacamole that you’ll want to scarf down by the bucket. In addition to perfectly ripe smashed avocado, Esto’s guac is loaded up with chopped tomatoes, garlic, onion and lots of fresh cilantro, with a generous squeeze of lime. There’s also mouthwatering quesadillas and rice bowls among the bill of fare.

He’s popping up at Abick’s Bar from 7-11 p.m. this Saturday, Jan. 23. There’s no need to make reservations, just show up with an appetite and a phone so you can text orders to the kitchen.

 

COMING UP

Yemans Street – Feb. 14

Believe it or not, it’s time to start making Valentine’s Day plans. The hottest dinners sell out quickly, and you do not want to be the guy taking your date for a sack of White Castle sliders because you couldn’t get a table at a real restaurant.

Be a Valentine’s hero and make reservations at Hamtramck popup venue Yemans Street. Brandon Hutcherson is popping up at 7 p.m. on Feb. 14 with a romantic meal “where love, lust and luxury meet.” Indulge in four velvety courses like corn bisque with saffron creme fraiche and grilled duck breast with raspberry balsamic demi glace. Each course is prepared with a glass of wine. Tickets cost $80 per person and are available online now.
