Komodo Kitchen Edible ArtThe last couple years have brought yet another phenomenon to Detroit: the pop-up restaurant.

Pop-up eateries have long been popular in major cities around the world as a way for young chefs and entrepreneurs to showcase their talents and test new creations without the overhead and risk associated with having a permanent storefront. Pop-ups borrow space in bars, warehouses, bakeries, art galleries and even other restaurants, on a temporary basis. Savvy diners follow their favorite pop-ups on social media and quickly snap up available tickets. Jump to the front of the line by following these fantastic eateries on Facebook.



Schnäck describes itself as an “occasional restaurant” offering German food, beer, Riesling and Krautrock. Follow on Facebook for upcoming events. 


Detroit Soup

Feed yourself soup and salad for a good cause. In its three years of operation, Detroit Soup has helped Detroiters give back more than $25,000 to help clean parks, fund art projects and move justice “one step farther.” Visit www.detroitsoup.com. 


Gypsy Kitchen

With an eclectic mix of soups, salads and sandwiches, Gypsy Kitchen serves “food that’s as good for the body as it is for the soul.” Catering, tastings and cooking demonstrations are also available upon request.


Komodo Kitchen

Komodo Kitchen is a once-a-month Indo-Fusion pop-up supper club. To add to the Indonesian atmosphere, the kitchen throws in themed music and artwork with each appearance. Go to komodokitchen.com, join Komodo’s mailing list or follow them on Twitter.



Organic, raw, vegan, non-GMO, soy and gluten-free — you name it, Chartreuse has got it. The majority is also sourced locally. Menus vary depending on local availability, and are always accompanied by live music from featured Detroit artists.
