You may have seen and experienced pop-up shops (a temporary store that pops up in the site of another business), but how about a pop-up restaurant?
Logan Square Kitchen, the shared-use commercial kitchen and event space, flips the switch for Chicago’s first pop-up restaurant to life THIS WEEKEND, July 24-25, during the Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival. In concert with celebrated Chicago chefs Bill Kim of Belly Shack and Urban Belly, and Jason Hammel of Nightwood and Lula Café, this unique culinary event is for TWO DAYS ONLY.
The restaurant will feature Chef Jason Hammel (in partnership with Intelligentsia) and Chef Bill Kim working side-by-side but creating distinctly different cuisine. Chef Hammel’s pop-up restaurant will be have a coffee and doughnut theme while Chef Kim’s pop-up restaurant will have a summer picnic theme.
Open during the Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival, the Logan Square Pop-Up Restaurant will present festival food: simple, fun and inexpensive.
Quick counter service will be CASH ONLY and expect limited seating. But it’s a festival, so you’re used to eating in a vertical position. Food will be designed to travel so you can get back to music stages and art galleries.
Remember – bring coinage – it’s CASH ONLY.
