Day 3: Panache 447 Courses for Restaurant Week

There are 10 restaurants participating in Downtown Plymouth's 10-day Restaurant Week.

Plymouth Restaurant Week is a chance for people to experience the tastes of Downtown Plymouth.

It's a 10-day event from Sept. 28 to Oct.7 when participating restaurants will feature three, four, or five-course meals at discounted prices.

Panache 447, open since January, is one of the restaurants participating and will be serving four-course meals for $25 and five-course meals for $35.

Four-Course Meal for $25

First Course Options: 

Exotic Mushroom

This soup contains a blend of wild mushrooms like trumpet, button and shitaki mushrooms," said Isaiah Perkins, Panache 447 executive chef. 

He said they saute the mushrooms, deglaze them with dry sherri, simmer in house-made vegetable stock and then puree and finish with thyme, basil and parsley. 

"There's no gluten in the soup and it's completely vegan," he said.

Soup Du Jour

Second Course:

Panache Salad

It is a house salad mix, tossed in Panache dressing and garnished with cucumber, red onion, goat cheese and tomato confit, which is tomato preserves. 

Third Course:

"We simply take our chicken breasts and we marinate them," Perkins said. "Then we tempura them and flash fry them."

Tempura means to be dipped in batter and fried in deep fat. The chicken is then sauteed in bell peppers, red onions and pineapples, and it is finished in the house-made sweet and sour sauce, he said. The completed dish is served in a pineapple shell.

This is Alaskan cod battered in Michigan's own Bells Two Hearted beer and served with house-made vinegar fries and tartar sauce. 

Fourth Course:

This is chocolate mousse topped with chocolate shavings and chocolate sauce.

"We will scoop it and serve it with Bourbon caramel sauce," he said.
