Chef shows off southern fusion menu before hosting Detroit pop-ups this summer

Arrie Restaurant and Lounge will host events in Metro Detroit

DETROIT – The chef and curator of Arrie Restaurant and Lounge joined Local 4 to show off some of the staples that’ll be on their pop-up menu this summer.

Chef Devante Burnley showed off his skills to create a southern fusion menu. The menu consists of a creole version of mussels, fried green tomato soup, a sweet potato Creme Brulee and many other dishes.

The chef stated that the goal is to build a brick-and-mortar in the Motor City by 2024. The mission of Arrie Restaurant and Lounge is to help change the narrative about the representation of southern cruising and black-owned dining establishments.
