Service Description

Today I propose a relatively new trend. More and more restaurants, established and aspiring, are considering a pop-up restaurant and more and more guests are getting excited about these unique dining experiences. Pop-up restaurants showed an 8% increase in trend growth on the National Restaurant Association’s Movers & Shakers list for 2016. According to the association’s “What’s Hot” survey, nearly 60 % of respondents say pop-up restaurants are still a viable trend. Here’s a brief history. In the 1960's, the term supper club referred to traditional restaurants that also served as exclusive social clubs. They would present themselves as elegant events, even if the price was relatively affordable. Eventually, the term underground restaurants became synonymous with supper clubs. These were closed door restaurants where famous chefs would cook food out of their home for the masses - or at least, for those who were in the know about the event. The restaurant industry is buzzing with pop-up restaurants. Yet, many in the industry have no idea what they are. Pop-up restaurants, as the name suggests, are temporary restaurants that are housed in a non-traditional setting for a set length of time. I find people dine at pop-up restaurants because the thought of it seems glamorous and adventurous, and chefs often try new culinary ideas and techniques in pop-up forums.
