An intimate meal for just 16 guests. A secret location, known only to the diners and the chefs. Soft lighting, captivating menus, and absolutely gorgeous food.
Dinner at the Stockyard Supper Club is an extraordinary experience.
The five course dinners, held once or twice a month, are hosted all across the metro region. Recently they’ve found a home in Detroit at spots like Ponyride in Corktown and Shinola in Midtown.Metro Detroit native Marc Bogoff began hosting the supper club last June. He returned home after working his way through the prep kitchens of some of Chicago’s most celebrated restaurants.
Stockyard’s menus have a strong focus on seasonal ingredients, with thoughtfully paired foods that show Marc and his culinary team are not afraid to experiment with new flavors and textures. The fare has included winners like Israeli couscous with braised red cabbage, sprouts, pine nuts, white wine poached egg, and chili oil, as well as a hearty lamb bolognese over cavatelli pasta with marinated feta, rye breadcrumbs, and pomegranate seeds. Each plate is painstakingly crafted to not only taste great but to look absolutely beautiful.
Despite the glamorous presentation, the chefs don’t take themselves too seriously. For every plate of microgreens with a runny egg there are playful treats like spam sliders (topped with peanuts, radicchio slaw and sambal aioli) and truffled popcorn tossed with bacon, rosemary, pecorino cheese and sea salt. You might find a delectable deconstructed s’more on your plate for dessert, made with graham cracker crumb, marshmallow, chocolate ganache, and blueberry jam.
Stockyard’s next supper club will take place this Saturday, April 12 at an undisclosed location which will be revealed via email when you book your reservation. The 7 p.m. seating is sold out, but as of press time there were a few seats still available for the 9:30 p.m. seating. Tickets cost $65 per person.
A mobile food trailer is also in the works, with plans to launch later this year. For more information about Stockyard Supper Club, or to make reservations visit detroitstockyard.com.
