Spring Wine Dinner with Forest's Chefs Matt Mayer and Nick Janutol
Meet Chef Nick Janutol, Forest’s lauded executive chef and two-time James Beard Award, semifinalist. And while we have you, please Meet Nick’s ally, colleague and Forest’s soon to be Chef de Cuisine, Matt Mayer. If you’ve been following foodie news lately, we all share in the buzz that Birmingham’s most-loved restaurant group (Forest and Phoenicia) is adding a third spot to their restaurant family, titled Leila, a Lebanese mezze bistro in Detroit’s Capitol Park. As Nick prepares the culinary foundation for Leila… chef de cuisine, Matt will begin to helm the kitchen of Forest’s near future with a focus on Modern Italian. There’s no pretense here, just simple, lovely things done very, very well in a great neighborhood restaurant. Join us to preview Forest’s new menu and mingle with this chef-duo. When the world is overseen by Chef Nick Janutol, it all makes perfect sense.
