Yemans St. Hosts a Vegetarian Pop-Up This Weekend

The new rage in the world of food is pop-ups. No, not popovers, the eggy bread like rolls that are super disappointing because they are so hollow. Pop-ups! Foodies are no longer satisfied going to restaurants and ordering off the menu. Instead they want a one night only menu, made just for them, that no one else will ever be able to try again.

By now, you've probably heard of the popular pop-up restaurant Revolver in Hamtramck. Well, there is a newer pop-up in Hamtramck that you may not have heard about, it's called Yemans St. Coincidentally, the reason this place came to our attention is the same reason we wrote about Revolver before, because Chef Jay Gundy from Cork Wine Pub is going to be cooking there! For one night only, this Friday, September 25th, Chef Gundy and his crew will be at Yemans St. for dinner, and we think it's a dinner that some of our friends will be interested in. It is a 5 course vegetarian meal. The menu includes:

1st Course: White Wine Braised Artichokes, Quinoa and Leek Compote, Avocado Mousse, Red Bell Pepper, Pickled Fresno Chili

2nd Course: Sweet Corn and Fire Roasted Poblano Soup, Banana Salsa, Roasted Pumpkin Seeds, Paprika Oil

3rd Course: Butternut Squash Ravioli, Toasted Hazelnuts, Sage, Whipped Goat Cheese, Sun Dried Cherry Compote

4th Course: Madeira Creamed Wild Mushrooms, Brioche Toast, Truffle Vinaigrette, Arugula Tellicherry Peppercorn Pesto, Salt Cured Egg Yolk

5th Course: Spiced Pumpkin Cake, Frozen Sweet Potato Souffle, Vanilla Bourbon Anglaise, Candied Walnuts

We're not even vegetarians and this sounds delicious! This is also a great opportunity to go to a pop-up if you're anything like me and are not too adventurous when it comes to food, especially meat. It seems like a lot of these chefs don't tend to feature standards like chicken or steak on their menu, instead they serve duck, fish, or pieces of animals that I wouldn't really consider meat. Well, you definitely won't have to worry about that on this menu! No meat, or sort of meat, just a delicious vegetarian meal.
If you would like to join Chef Jay Gundy for dinner at Yemans St. you must purchase tickets in advance. Tickets for the 5 course meal are $55 and can be purchased in advance here. Dinner starts at 7 p.m. and patrons are asked to arrive 15-30 minutes prior. 

Yemans St. is located at 2995 Yemans St. in Detroit. For more information on this event and upcoming events (including brunches!), give them a "like" them on Facebook here or head over to YemansStreet.com
