An Evening with Executive Chef Matthew Schellig


At The War Memorial, we believe in the power of cuisine as art. Over the past year, we’ve worked to bring the top chefs from Detroit (and, indeed, from around the world) to our kitchen, hosting special evenings of food, connectivity, and exploration. Our 2019 series of culinary adventures features adventures in food spanning a variety of cultures and flavors. Join us for an amazing dinner featuring remarks by guest Chef Matthew Schellig, your dining experience will be enhanced with a complimentary cocktail of your choosing followed by fellowship with friends old and new!
