Chef Jay Gundy Takes You Around the World at Revolver!

There's a restaurant in Hamtramck called Revolver. The name explains the concept behind the business. It is a restaurant that has a revolving menu brought to you by revolving chefs. Typically the restaurant brings in an esteemed chef every week and along with them comes a special menu that they have come up with just for this engagement. The restaurant is typically only open on Fridays and Saturdays and you have to buy tickets to dine there.

We used one key word in that last paragraph a couple of times; typically. The reason we are pointing that out is because yes, typically there is a different chef every week and typically Revolver is only open on Friday on Saturday. However, starting this weekend they are hosting the popular Metro Detroit Chef, Jay Gundy. Instead of having his dinner on Friday and Saturday, his will be on Sunday. And instead of having him only take over Revolver for one weekend, he will be there the next several Sundays!

You may know Chef Jay Gundy from Cork in Pleasant Ridge, but he has also worked at a wide array of restaurants throughout the Metro Detroit area over the years. You can read his bio here. For his Revolver dinner Chef Gundy will be taking you "Around the World in 6 Courses". The menu includes: "(first) Roasted Carrots with carrot puree, carrot top chimichurri, sunflower seeds, and pickled fresno chilies/ (next) Green Eggs and Ham Salad with pea and wasabi deviled eggs, bacon tomato frisée, and tarragon dijon vinaigrette/ (also) Grilled Jerk Chicken with roasted tomato sauce,
coconut rice cake, plantain salsa, toasted coconut/ (and) BBQ'd Faroe Island Salmon with cheddar grits, pickled okra, and poblano corn cream/ (then) Wuxi Pork Belly with miso roasted fingerling potatoes, kimchi, garlic peanuts, and braising reduction/ (finally) Butterscotch Custard with chocolate, brûléed banana, and chocolate cookie crumble". Tickets for this dinner are $60 per person and can be purchased online here.

Chef Jay Gundy will be at Revolver on Sunday, March 8th, 15th and 22nd, but unfortunately all of those dates are already sold out. However, Revolver has just added a fourth date, Sunday, March 29th. Tickets have not gone on sale yet for this evening, so you still have a chance! Tickets for the 29th will go on sale this Sunday, March 8th! Keep an eye on Revolver's Facebook page here to find out what time tickets will be up for grabs.

Seating for Chef Gundy's dinner will begin at 7 p.m. Revolver is located at 9737 Joseph Campau in Hamtramck. For more information on Revolver and the idea behind it, click here.
