Revolver: Pop-Up Culinary Delight

8 Jun

securedownload Revolver is not only a gun in the Motor City. These days it’s a fun restaurant — a revolving restaurant, because the chefs rotate weekly. This unconventional restaurant is located in Hamtramck, Mich., a city surrounded by the City of Detroit. We dined there with Chef Chris Skillingstad. The four-course, prix fixe menu included: Iceberg lettuce, bacon wrapped dates, gorgonzola, candied walnut, grape tomato and aerated dressing; Sunchoke textures, leeks, black garlic, craisin, sweet bell peppers and jalpeno; Duck with blackberry demi-glaze, cocoa, turnip, mushroom, asparagus and yam; Liquid cheesecake, pie crust, pecan, peach, mint and raspberry. The communal dining atmosphere was fun, and the food was delicious. Co-owner Peter Dalinowski (shown) stopped by everyone’s table to describe the concept and greet guests. Chefs all over the country are soliciting Revolver, as they can try out new, unique recipes.

The other day I was walking down the street in Birmingham, Mich. and this black  and gold-trimmed doorway was bedecked with flowers. I peeked in, and to my surprise, I was greeted by Lama Tayeb (below), the owner of the new boutique Coqueta.

The colorful boutique was filled with clothing from Milan and Paris. “I have a passion for fashion,” says Tayeb, who travels throughout Europe selecting beautiful clothing, shoes and handbags for Coqueta.

Enter the equisite  doorway of Coqueta and you, too, will see beautiful fashion!
