Our most engaged readers will recall how Hamtramck's second fixed pop-up space, Yemans Street, opened in late September of last year. The place got up and running, hosting pop-up dinners from some well-known chefs, under the guidance of honchos Matt and Corrie Tinker. And then the Tinkers had to go on hiatus for a pretty darn good reason: They had a child, a daughter, and took a few months off to get their little family up to speed. (One of the nice things about being your own boss is determining your own family leave policy!)
Well, the Tinkers are all caught up now, and they've let us know that they'll be having their first pop-up meal on May 28, featuring Salt & Acid. What's more, they'll also be starting up their a la carte brunch program on May 24, with chef Jeremy Kalmus. It's walk-in, no reservations needed, and features creative food that has people dropping in from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sundays.
Other pop-ups coming down the pike reportedly include Jordan Ceresnie, pastry chef from the Root (June 17), John Breeland, chef-owner J.B Chowhounds (June 19), Jared Bobkin, the sous chef @ 220 restaurant (June 25), and Eric Voigt, pastry chef @ Big Rock Chophouse (June 27). Also in the works is a visit from Ed Sura from Perennial Virant, Chicago.
