The weather is getting warmer and you probably want an excuse to leave your apartment this weekend. That’s why we’re highlighting a couple of particularly exciting pop-ups that are only around for a certain time. For more ongoing pop-ups around NYC, check out our guide to the newest projects.
The former CDC of Win Son, Calvin Eng, is set to open a new Cantonese-American restaurant in Williamsburg in the fall of 2021 called Bonnie’s. Before that happens though, he’s testing some of his dishes by popping up at restaurants around the city. The next one is happening at Golden Diner featuring a golden lava French toast stuffed with salted duck egg custard and sweetened condensed milk on top - Bonnie’s version of a cha chaan teng dish. All of the proceeds from the $10 dish benefit Asian American Pacific Islander Women Lead, an organization committed to advocating for the safety, survival, and leadership of AAPI girls and women-identifying individuals. You can order delivery or stop by Golden Diner for golden lava French toast from 5-10pm on Saturday, March 27th.
Two of the chefs who participated in Ursula’s queer pop-up series (Tony Ortiz and Zacarías González) recently started a month-long residency at Winona’s on the border of Bed-Stuy and Williamsburg. Their menu includes seasonal Mexican and Cuban food, as well as wine pairings from Amigxs - a collective of hospitality professionals working to fund emerging chefs. Follow Tony and Zacarias’s Ediciones Project for more updates on the residency, and make an indoor or outdoor reservation for the pop-up here.
