Pop Up BBQ? Yes, Please

porkby Steven Doyle

Pop Up restaurants are fun. Tasting cuisine that is not on any menu in town, and inspired for that one evening and fed to a small gathering is definitely my idea of entertainment. There are a small handful of chefs that make the Pop Up their livelihood. Chef DAT comes to mind, as does Frank, the underground private dinner party experience by MasterChef Season 2 finalists Jennie Kelley & Ben Starr. I also enjoy the food styling’s of Chef Nicole. We have discussed all these fun Pop Ups on craveDFW at length.

Now coming your way on Thursday, June 6, 2013 you will have a chance at tasting the first BBQ Pop Up at Garden Café in East Dallas. This is from Robert Lanktree who works for Julian Barsotti at Carbone’s and as sous for Chef DAT.


The menu looks pretty tasty and includes Smoked Berkshire Pork (The Kobe Beef of Pork, Smoked Organic Fresh (Never Frozen) Turkey, A House-Made BBQ Sauce, Lime-Cilantro Cole Slaw, Bacon Fat Fried Rice w/ Bacon, Mushrooms, & Onions, Red & Purple Potato Salad w/ Serrano Chilies, Roasted Corn, & Red Onion tossed in a Grain Mustard Vinaigrette, and desserts prepared by Katy Priore who owns Bark Chocolate.

The dinner will be BYOB, but soft drinks and tea will be sold in addition to the platters which will come in three sizes. Make plans to stop by for some meaty goodness.

BBQ Pop Up | June 6, 2013 Starting @ 6:30pm | Garden Café 5310 Junius St, Dallas
