DETROIT, February 11, 2009 – This February, Detroit Synergy’s Supper Club ventures to a new venue to get a taste of Taste. Taste Pizzabar just opened a few weeks ago, and we couldn’t resist the urge to check out what this new chic, trendy gourmet pizzeria-cum-lounge was all about. On Wednesday, February 25th, beginning with a cocktail hour at 6:00PM and with dinner at 7:00PM, join us as we discover this new Detroit dining and socializing destination.

“The response has been amazing,” says General Manager William of the feedback and coverage Taste has so far received. “So many people—bloggers, newspapers, weekly rags—have been supporting us and have been checking out the restaurant and encouraging others to do the same, and it’s really a great feeling that so many people are interested and want to see us be a success. We’ve all worked very hard and people recognize that.”

For only $25.00 per person, inclusive of tax and gratuity, diners can experience for themselves what Taste is all about. There will also be an additional two-glass wine flight available for an additional $10.00. For this event, Chef Dale Daniels has created a menu featuring the many tastes of Taste for diners to sample:

*Family-style appetizers of mozzarella sticks, chicken tenders, and “Wanys” (spicy battered and fried pickles);
*Dinner salad with your choice of buttermilk ranch, honey mustard, or blueberry-pomegranate vinaigrette dressings;
*6’’ personal pizza, your choice of classic pepperoni, “‘Shrooms” (oven-roasted Cremini, Portabella, Shittake, and Oyster mushrooms covered in mozzarella), and the “Hula” (chunks of sweet juicy pineapple and loads of ham with mozzarella)
*Cheesecake Cupcake, choice of Red Velvet or Turtle

With its exposed brick walls, high ceilings and windows, bold yet warm décor and comfortable lounge-like atmosphere, Taste Pizzabar is the quintessential Detroit dining locale, right down to the ambient electronic music playing in the background (with DJs spinning in the lounge on Friday and Saturday nights). Prices are modest and tastes cater both to the gastronomy of a gourmet as well as the appetite of the after-bar crowd. Comfort foods such as Tater Tots meet gourmet tastes such as the all-seafood “Ocean 21” pizza in an environment designed to be conducive to socializing and sharing good times and a slice of ‘za with friends. Catering to trendy “tastes” while still managing to be comfortable and inviting, Taste is bound to make a big mark on the dining landscape and social scene of the city.
