Metro Detroit instantly recognizes Chef Bobby Nahra. His appearances on Fox 2 are part of the community’s fabric, along with his presence at many local charity events and gatherings.
With his roles as official chef at institutions like M1 Concourse and the Royal Oak Music Theater, Chef Bobby has cemented his reputation as one of Metro Detroit’s premiere culinary masters.
But Chef Bobby will be the first to tell you it’s a team effort, just as his own success has owed to many important figures in his life.
From its St. Clair Shores-based headquarters on the site of Encore Catering and Banquet Center, Chef Bobby lauds his outstanding culinary team, his dedicated sales staff and his essential administrative staff for keeping the entire operation humming at peak efficiency.
The pleasantly indulged palates of the metro area are always the winners, no matter where Chef Bobby and the Encore operation take their culinary delights.
And those locations are growing. The latest additions are right in Encore’s back yard of St. Clair Shores – with the addition of Blossom Heath Inn and Hook.
Blossom Heath Inn, located in St. Clair Shores, is a classic venue with roots in the Prohibition era. With a legacy both notorious and iconic, the building practically narrates its own history with an atmosphere that recalls a defining time in the emergence of modern America. Yet its modern renovations ensure that the guest experience will rival that of any facility in the Midwest. With a menu featuring locally sourced ingredients, Blossom Heath Inn provides a first-rate experience for any gathering.
Also joining the Encore family in 2023 is Hook, the restaurant formerly known as Brownie’s, inside Emerald City Marina in St. Clair Shores. With a full, high-end menu served amidst the harbor backdrop, Hook also features special evening events with live music and/or DJ-hosted specials. Previously open only as a seasonal venue, Hook is open year-round and to the public – and can be rented for special events. Be part of Encore’s very first season as the proud owners of an all-new venue in this iconic location.
Established Encore venues include Freedom Hill Banquet and Catering Center in Sterling Heights. Beautifully situated within Freedom Hill Metropark, it’s the ideal venue for weddings, corporate events, memorials or any type of gathering that calls for an exquisite setting. Between the sprawling grassy terrain, the lush trees and the impeccably groomed grounds, Freedom Hill is sure to provide a generous helping of memories as well as a first-class experience and environment.
And of course, on Encore’s headquarters site is Encore Catering and Banquet Center in St. Clair Shores. The team here sees every event, every wedding, every party as another opportunity for Chef Bobby and his team to exceed your expectations. With a professional event planner on call to assist clients with their gatherings – and of course, top-of-the-line culinary services – every event at Encore becomes a valued chapter in the lives of those who are part of it.
And Chef Bobby is not limited to brick and mortar. With his fully equipped truck, Chef and his team can head off to any location and cook fresh on-site.
Chef Bobby started his culinary journey at the age of six, helping his mother by chopping carrots and preparing festive meals for the family. He has always considered it part of her legacy, as well as his, when he offers such fine culinary fare to Metro Detroit residents – and exceptional venues for the community’s gatherings.
