A CULINARY MASTER RETURNS HOME
A homecoming years in the making, Chef Thomas Lents’ return to his home state of Michigan signals a new period of culinary innovation in Detroit. Chef Lents has worked all over the world, and during his four years as Executive Chef at Sixteen in Chicago, he attained the immensely coveted two-star Michelin rating. Yet, he also hoped to one day reconnect with the Michigan community while helping local chefs reach their potential. That time is now, and it’s a special one in Detroit, as Chef Lents says he hopes to bring “fuller bellies and fuller futures.”
