Kyle Hanley, a local chef in Detroit, has prepared a one-night-only pop-up restaurant which is based on Radiohead’s renowned album, Kid A. The menu offers unique selections one normally wouldn’t associate with the songs, which makes the whole concept that much more interesting. The full menu is below:
01. “Everything in Its Right Place”: Pan-seared diver scallop, yuzu fluid gel, fried cellophane noodle, lemongrass ponzu, chili oil. With Pfalz Riesling.
02. “Kid A”: Black caprese. With Alto Adige Kerner.
03. “The National Anthem”: Pan-seared lamb chops, crispy pig ear, blood orange reduction. With 100 percent Mourvedre.
04. “How to Disappear Completely”: Oil-poached monkfish, white asparagus, white balsamic vinaigrette, daikon sprouts. With Leelanau Good Harbour Golden Ale.
05. “Treefingers”: Tomato granita. With cilantro-infused gin, jalapeño syrup, fresh lime, sea salt, chili oil.
06. “Optimistic”: Maple sugar-seared duck breast, pink peppercorn gastrique, orange juniper pearls, shredded confit. With Anderson Valley Knez Pinot Noir.
07. “In Limbo”: Shades of Bouillabaisse. With Cava VallDolina.
08. “Idioteque”: Arugula salad, sous-vide egg, lardo croutons, manchego crisps, crispy pancetta, smoked sherry vinaigrette, meyer lemon foam, caper dust. With Mezcal Chartruese sour, dash of Ango.
o9. “Morning Bell”: Meyer lemon sorbet. With gin and tonic.

I’m not much of a seafood person, but the thought of a meal consisting of oil-poached monkfish being based on a Radiohead song makes it sound almost appetizing and something I could possibly really enjoy trying.
