Yum Village throws a fixed-price five-course dinner downtown

We narrowly missed including this in our print edition, but you should know about a fixed-price table d'hôte meal happening this Thursday. It's called Yum Village, and it gives Detroit's culinary upstarts a chance to bask in the spotlight — and gives diners a chance to share what they think.
