July Supper Club at Iridescence

Foie gras peanut butter and jelly torchon at Iridescence

This is the one we’ve all been waiting for…on Wednesday, July 28 starting at 6:00PM, Supper Club will ascend to the top level of the Motor City Casino and revel in a feast for the eyes and mouth at the unrivaled Iridescence.

Iridescence is the only AAA four-diamond-rated restaurant in the city of Detroit. The décor is nothing short of stunning, with 60-ft windows offering a panoramic view of the city, plush ultra-chic furnishings, LED accent lighting, and a soaring ceiling, diners will feel as though they’ve been transported to one of the trendiest restaurants in Miami or Monte Carlo. The experience is heightened exponentially by Chef de Cuisine Derik Watson’s food – deconstructed comfort food classics gone couture. They also have a Wine Spectator award-winning wine list and an award-winning house pastry chef, Patricia Nash. This is TRULY world-class dining, and will make for an unforgettable experience.
