In a sort of old versus new look at the evolution of Detroit's restaurant scene, chefs Chris Franz of the long-acclaimed Rattlesnake Club, Matt Tulpa of the Salt & Saffron pop-up, and Vicecream Detroit are teaming up to host a six-course dinner.
The special event will be held June 21 on the Rattlesnake's riverfront terrace.
Franz has been cooking in metro Detroit kitchens for 30 years, while Tulpa has been making waves in the pop-up scene.
Tickets are required to attend and go for $65. They can be purchased by going to the Rattlesnake Club website here
