April Supper Club at 24 Grille

Detroit Synergy’s Supper Club is once again ahead of the curve, taking this month’s event to experience another new face in Detroit dining: the recently-opened 24 Grille, inside the Westin Book-Cadillac. On Wednesday, April 29th, Supper Club will invade the ultra-stylish and sleek 24 Grille for an evening of contemporary regional and American cuisine, and once again offers a bargain diners won’t find anywhere else: $30.00 inclusive of tax and gratuity, with an optional two-glass wine flight for an additional $10.00.

“I’ve been very active with Detroit Synergy in past years,” states Gideon Pfeffer, one of the five partners in the Entourage Restaurant Group which owns the Grille. “We’re very excited to be hosting this event with this group, and we look forward to welcoming everyone to our elegant space and creative cuisine.”

Innovative and daring Executive Chef Jason Gardner has created a three-course menu specifically for this event, highlighting some of 24 Grille’s most popular specialties:

Salad: Tomato Caesar with shaved parmesan, Romaine, and charred tomato Caesar dressing

Entree (Choice of):
*Pan-Roasted Amish Chicken Breast with butternut squash purée, roasted sweet garlic, and sage-infused Jus Lié
*Braised Short Ribs with shaved garlic, wilted escarole, gold raisins, and horseradish hollandaise

Dessert: Chef’s selection specialty dessert

Tickets are $30.00 in advance at the DSG store,, and include tax and gratuity. There will also be an optional two-glass wine flight available for an additional $10.00. Tickets to this event are available by online purchase only, and all purchases must be made by Tuesday, April 28th. Due to capacity issues, there will be a strict adherence to a 40-person limit. There will be absolutely no walk-ins permitted. Tickets are first-come, first-served.

24 Grille is yet another example of Detroit’s ever-growing fine dining industry. With so many wonderful restaurants opening over the past year, some might fear that there is a glut; but all have thus far seen a tremendous amount of success and popularity, with 24 Grille rounding out the recent additions and already being a destination for Detroiters and Detroit tourists alike. With its soothing interiors decorated in chocolate hues and warm woods with accents such as intricately modern crystal chandeliers, prominent hand-blown glass lighting fixtures, and a polished-granite slab “fireplace” (seen decorated with votive candles and a center gas flame), the style is both plush and industrial, both welcoming and extremely high-art; much like the menu, which features haute cuisine takes on classic Midwestern and traditional American dishes. 24 Grille is fast becoming a “see and be seen” hotspot for trendy Detroiters imbibing in a cocktail or looking for an inventive meal; see for yourself the restaurant that had celebrities and national media raving over NCAA weekend!
