Chefs seek commitment, not a one-night stand
Mar 24, 2015 9:00 am

Diners may be attracted to pop-up food events because of their ephemeral, fling-like qualities. But the chefs who advertise these casual culinary encounters arent always looking for just a one-night stand. Writer Rachel Signer examines how these seemingly one-off meals can lead to something more permanent.

That’s one thing that’s so attractive about the Mission Chinese pop-up going on now at Frankie’s 457 in Brooklyn.
