Roughly a month after Mid-City restaurant Milkfish closed, it is returning to its original pop-up status. The Filipino concept from chef Cristina Quackenbush is popping up at Killer Poboys' (219 Dauphine St., 504-462-2731; www.killerpoboys.com) Dauphine Street location May 2.
Quackenbush first launched her pop-up in 2012, hosting events at some of Adolfo Garcia's restaurants before moving on to Marigny bar Marie's (2483 Burgunday St.) and a long run at Who Dat Cafe (2401 Burgundy St.) before she and her husband Dean Lambert secured the Mid-City location. Quackenbush closed her Carrollton Avenue restaurant in March, after a two-year run at the spot, where she fostered other like-minded business ventures from pop-ups around the city.
Milkfish also will pop up at the new Broad Theater (636 N. Broad St.) in Mid-City on Saturdays.
The event at Killer Poboys, which also started as a pop-up inside the Erin Rose bar, includes a five-course tasting menu with optional wine, beer and cocktail pairings.
