Stockyard Detroit @ Shinola – Restaurant Week
Shinola… If you haven’t heard that name before and you’ve been to Detroit, you must be living under a rock. It’s an explosive and exciting emerging brand that’s taking the world by storm! It’s a brand that makes us proud to say “this is a step in the right direction for Detroit.” If you haven’t been to the Shinola store, what are you waiting for? Head to midtown and check out their handcrafted in Detroit watches, leather goods, journals and bicycles, as well as carefully curated products.
Stockyard Detroit is a relatively new underground powerhouse that our own Kat Rembacki posted about not too long ago. Many have never heard of pop-up dinners and, if they have, only the bigger ones. Pop-up dinners are an adventure, an intimate affair, and a one of kind experience. The perfect combination of food, location and wine.
Stockyard & Detroit Wine School partnered up with Shinola to provide 2 nights of unforgettable seatings. I was lucky enough to get into a sold out seating and wanted to provide you with an inside view of what this evening had to offer.
Marc and Mike created four perfectly plated courses and topped them off with a sweet treat. Mindy Lopus from the Detroit Wine School selected four amazing wines to pair with each course and certainly surprised my palette. The real standout for me, though, was a Rosé wine I would never have chosen for myself. Detroit Wine School provide a unique and memorable experience through education, events, consulting, and travel.
The next upcoming events are May 31 (7 & 9:30pm seatings). If the pop-up that’s available doesn’t fit your schedule, keep an eye out. They’re always posting a new one. Check detroitstockyard.com
Also keep an eye out for their new mobile food trailer. It’s just a matter of time before you’ll see them hitting the streets and blowing your taste buds away. Great sandwiches, salads and other tasty bites will give you an alternative to the average everyday meal. Contact them for lunch sets at your company, late night snacks at weddings and catering for private and corporate parties! Contact Stockyard Detroit
