Pop-Up Restaurants Give Chefs Creative License

Dinner Lab, Facebook

A pop-up restaurant will appear somewhere in Milwaukee this Saturday.

The concept has been around for a while. The idea is to introduce diners to new and different cuisines from chefs whose work they may already be familiar with. 

But a new twist on the pop-up concept adds a social layer to it. Dinner Lab is a New Orleans-based company which sets up pop up restaurants in cities around the country – especially focusing on markets besides giants like New York and Los Angeles.

The sixth one to take place in Milwaukee is this Saturday night, at a location yet to be announced. Edie Feinstein and Brian Bourdainick of Dinner Lab joined Lake Effect's Bonnie North and food contributor Kyle Cherek in the studio.

Dinner Lab’s Milwaukee event with Chicago chef Gabriel Moya will be this Saturday night at a location to be announced.
