This dinner is for the bougie of the bougie.
Prime + Proper steakhouse on Griswold Street in downtown Detroit, along with Remy Martin Louis XIII, offer dinner for two for $5,500 next Tuesday, June 4 at 7 p.m.
It's described as a cognac pairing with a seasonal four-course dining experience. (To put in all in perspective, you can get 7,638 White Castle sliders for that money). Or as my mother would say at restaurants: "Do you know how many meals we could have at home for that money?"
The $5,500 includes tax and gratuity and an engraved bottle of Louis XIII cognac, Louis XIII Pillet crystal glasses and a departure gift.
Here's the menu:
Uni and caviar (Uni is Japanese sea urchin).
Chicory Two Ways: Grilled radicchio, rhubarb, red grapes, landon, super-chillled frisee, celery, Point Reyes blue, green grapes.
150-day dry aged imperial wagyu rib roast carved tableside with accompaniments, sauce rouennaise, braised leeks with herbs and vinegar, shell beans and morels.
Strawberry rhubarb parfait
The Capitol Park evening also includes champane pairings and cigar offerings.

For those who can't make it, we'll see you at the White Castle (see menu).
