'Lady of the House' Serves Meals on Donated Old Dinnerware

Many eco-minded consumers are now opting for dine-in over takeaway meals simply for the sake of minimizing single-use waste—and Detroit's Lady of the House takes this concept a step further by serving food on old dinnerware accepted by donation.

When Lady of the House first opened, it launched with some of the special pieces that belonged to Chef Kate's aunt and grandmother. Now, the restaurant's collection of teacups, drinking classes and plates continues to grow thanks to contributions from staff, unique thrift store finds and guests.

Naturally, none of the eclectic dishware at the restaurant matches, but this helps to create an eating experience that is cozy and makes the most of beautiful, precious dishes that often go unused, as they tend to be reserved only for special eating occasions.
