Yesterday, Mpls.St.Paul Magazine restaurant critic and food writer Dara Moskowitz Grumdahl announced via Twitter that chef Erik Anderson and sommelier Bill Summerville want to do a Champagne and fried chicken pop-up restaurant. After the initial buzz piqued an interest over the local Twitter-sphere, DMG then went on to solicit the interwebs, on her blog, for a place to hold the pop-up. No word of if anything has been finalized as of right now.
Chef Anderson recently returned to the Twin Cities after a stint in Nashville and has already done a few pop ups with Summerville—who is a partner and wine director at La Belle Vie—at places like Haute Dish and Borough. The Haute Dish pop-up ran $200/person for twelve courses; the Borough pop-up ran $250/person for twenty courses. When he was a guest on her weekly radio show this past weekend, Anderson told DMG that he would like to do some more casual, cheaper pop-ups, including this fried chicken and Champagne concept.
