Chef’s Schoolyard

Grey Ghost Detroit Chefs John Vermiglio and Joe Giacomino are partnering with six of the city’s finest chefs to host ‘Chef’s Schoolyard,’ a 7-course dinner benefitting Detroit Prep and their mission in turning an abandoned school building into a world-class educational facility. Detroit Prep is a small free public charter school located just a few miles from Grey Ghost at 2411 Iroquois Ave. The school, which currently serves kindergarten through 2nd grade in their temporary space in the basement of a church, is in the midst of a year-long fundraiser to raise $1 million to purchase and renovate a school building as their forever home.

Chefs John and Joe reached out to some of their fellow culinary friends and partners and have assembled an all-star cast including: James Rigato of Mabel Gray, Andy Hollyday of Selden Standard, Anthony Lombardo of soon-to-open SheWolf, Kate Williams of Lady of the House, Brad Greenhill of Takoi and Alex Clark of Bon Bon Bon.

The evening includes a 7-course dinner curated by the chef team, open bar, and silent auction with all proceeds benefiting Detroit Prep.
