A recent Grub Street article mentions how pop-up restaurants based upon FOX TV’s fictional Bob’s Burgers restaurant have now sprung up in both Los Angeles and New York City.
In December 2016, an official Bob’s Burgers pop-up restaurant set up shop in Los Angeles for ten days. The temporary restaurant featured an exhibit of artwork inspired by the popular cartoon show, as well as a menu that offered a different type of specialty burger each day. The event was a major success that drew lots of hungry diners.
Now, a year later, a new Bob’s Burgers pop-up restaurant will be open in Manhattan from December 18th through December 24, 2017. Each of these creative pop-ups was orchestrated by chef Alvin Cailan, the owner of the Eggslut restaurant group.
As with the pop-up restaurant in LA, the Bob’s Burgers pop-up restaurant in New York City will feature a different specialty burger on each day of operation. The pop-up will be operating at the Chef’s Club Counter restaurant at 62 Spring Street in Soho.
The Chef’s Club Counter is a unique spot where talented chefs from around the world take turns running the kitchen.
For example, the Dark Side of the Shroom Burger is topped with shiitake mushrooms, pineapple and teriyaki sauce. The Don’t You Four Cheddar ‘Bout Me burger is topped with four types of cheddar, bacon, onion and lettuce.
Other burger toppings at the Bob’s Burgers pop-up in Manhattan will include items such as goat cheese, caramelized shallots, arugula, pineapple and shiitake mushrooms. Each burger is served with a side of fries, and a commemorative sticker and key chain, with a price tag of $20.
