What if you could enjoy a luxurious dinner out, with 8 courses of local and seasonal food served in creative combinations and platings? What if you could support local southeast Michigan charities while you were at it? And what if all of this came at the same price you'd pay for dinner on Main Street? Welcome to TT Supper Club, an occasional underground dining experience in Ann Arbor, MI.
Each TT Supper Club meal is for just 8 guests. The menu is created just days before the dinner and reflects what's freshest and most enticing at the Farmer's Market that week, as well as guests' preferences and food restrictions. Meals are BYOB, but the menus are designed to be wine-friendly and wine pairing recommendations are available. See previous menus and pictures.
The mission of TT Supper Club is to support local charities and organizations as well as local farmers and merchants. To that end, I use locally grown and raised products wherever possible, and shop at locally-owned stores. Most meals benefit local organizations that are doing interesting things in Ann Arbor and environs. Past TT Supper Club dinners have supported Food Gatherers, Growing Hope and Preserving Traditions here in Ann Arbor, and Earthworks Urban Farm and Field of our Dreams in Detroit, to name just a few. Fundraising meals are cooked and served by volunteers, with all proceeds beyond the cost of food being donated directly to the benefit organization.

An outstanding experience!!! The meal exceeded my expectations for most restaurants. Each course was delicious, was made with fresh local ingredients, and was plated so beautifully it was worthy of a magazine. Tammy is a truly generous, talented hostess. The best part was that the majority of the dinner cost went to a worthwhile local charity. My husband, friends, and I enjoyed the conversation, new faces, food, relaxed atmosphere, and charitable theme so much that we already reserved our seats at the table for next month's supper. This was a very memorable, special time. I'm so glad we came.

Thanks again for a fabulous dinner last night -- I thoroughly enjoyed every course! I do think the scallop on the pea puree was absolutely heavenly. The flavors were beautifully matched and the prociutto was an appreciated accent. The beet ravioli and panna cotta with rhubarb were also absolutely delicious, and the combination of the pickled and sweet rhubarb was delightful. Everything else was fabulous, too -- I loved every bite!!
