Chef Pete Vazquez Brings Sunday Supper Club to Stein's


by Brad Rhines

Pop-up restaurants keep popping up all over New Orleans, with the latest venture, Hush Supper Club, serving its first meal last night at Stein’s Market and Deli on Magazine St. While most pop-ups are devoted to a particular dish - ramen noodles or burgers, for example - the globe-hopping chef behind Hush Supper Club refuses to be fenced in by such conventional expectations.


Dante's Kitchen Brings Ramen Revolution to Coulis with Noodle and Pie


by Brad Rhines

Throughout the city - and across the country - fine dining chefs have taken to the task of elevating junk food favorites like burgers, pizza, and tacos to suit the tastes of a more sophisticated audience.  This week, a new pop-up restaurant in the Coulis kitchen, called Noodle and Pie, is tackling ramen, that dorm room staple made hipster famous in recent years. The staff from Dante’s Kitchen is taking over the Prytania St. breakfast-lunch spot on Sunday and Monday nights, selling steamed pork buns, bowls of handmade noodles, and slices of homemade pie.


Vegetarian Food Pops Up at Tsai


by Ben de la Cour

Burgers and pizza are highly successful pop-up fare in New Orleans, but now it's the veggies' turn. Scheduled to operate out of Esplanade Avenue's Dragon's Den for at least one week, Tsai is New Orleans' newest (and only) pop-up vegetarian restaurant. The name, which means “vegetable”, “dish” as well as “cuisine” in Chinese, is the brainchild of Karen Wang & Aron Chang, two Taiwanese-born chefs living in New Orleans. This week, NoDef went down the bamboo shoot, and asked Wang about  the operation.


Drivin' 'Em Patty

MVBurger's Pop-Up Popularity



UPTOWN - While waiting in line outside Slim Goodie’s Diner on Magazine Street for an hour in the rain on Sunday night, there's a common refrain: “This burger better be damn good." And with a name like MVBurger (Most Valuable Burger), the bar for said burger is raised all that much higher.
