After announcing the permanent closure of her beloved Corktown restaurant, Lady of the House, last month, Chef Kate Williams is back in action with a unique pop-up series for foodies and history buffs alike.
Williams’ restaurant Karl’s, a classic diner with a twist located in the Siren Hotel, will transform into Kate’s during the run of the series, which takes place on four weekends from March 19 through April 10. Each event features a five-course meal based on a year that is important to the city’s culinary history and has a connection to Williams’ ancestors.
The series starts in 1853, the year Williams’ ancestors arrived in North America, with a menu of oysters, carrot soup, Johnny cakes, smoked butter poached potatoes with caper relish, corned lamb and fermented cabbage with mustard gravy, and whiskey pudding and a brown bread cookie for dessert. Other pop-ups include Detroit in 1907, “A Night in French Detroit;” Detroit in 1926, “Detroit’s Glamour and its Wurlitzer;” and Detroit in 1946, “The American Home Cuisine Boom.”
