Supper Club at Foran's Deluxe Diner

Foran’s Grand Trunk Pub is a little slice of Detroit history…not to mention a big slice of craft brew heaven for beer aficionados and locals alike. Named the “Grand Trunk Pub” to honor the building’s history as the Grand Trunk Railroad’s ticket station, Foran’s maintains much of the original building’s 1900s original architecture, from the vaulted ceilings to the exposed brick walls, hardwood floors and brass chandeliers.

Foran’s is a celebration of Detroit through-and-through. With the largest selection of Michigan craft brews you’ll find anywhere (including some hard-to-find favorites like Shorts, Arcadia, New Holland, and Founders, as well as a monthly featured brewery which is Detroit’s own Atwater Block Brewery this month) and an emphasis on all things locally-sourced (breads from Avalon, meats and produce from Eastern Market, Faygo in glass bottles), it’s no wonder that Foran’s is packed full of locals all hours of the day and night. Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name…in Detroit, that place is Foran’s.

Foran’s recently acquired the space next door – formerly Eph’s – to open Foran’s Deluxe Diner. In this space they will expand their menu, and while the Diner itself is not open for regular hours quite yet, their weekly Thursday night Supper Club is a go. This month, Detroit Synergy’s Supper Club will join the Foran’s Deluxe Diner Supper Club on Thursday, June 24 at 6:00PM for a special menu at a very low prix fixe price: only $25 per person, and that includes a glass of wine (NOTE: this price does NOT include tax or gratuity).

~Antipasto Salad
~Prime Rib with twice-baked potato and steamed vegetables
~Ice Cream Sundae
~One glass of wine with entrée

Afterwards, be sure to hang out at the bar next door and enjoy the best crowd in the city with the best beer to match. Because of extremely limited capacity, this will be another non-traditional Supper Club event. There is a strict 25-person limit. You MUST RSVP to in advance.

There is no pre-payment or prix fixe menu for this event; diners will be billed individually at the restaurant.
