Food trucks are not the only culinary trend making its push from New York and LA. This weekend only Bill Kim of Belly Shack and Urban Belly and Jason Hammel of Nightwood and Lula Café (in partnership with Intelligentsia) will be let loose in the Logan Square Kitchen space to create their version of a "pop-up" restaurant (a temporary eating place set up in the site of another business).

Instead of noshing on sub-par festival food at the Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival, walk-up and enjoy summer picnic favorites from Kim or Hammel’s coffee and donuts themed treats. All menu items will range from $2 - $5 (cash only) and are designed to travel (seating will be limited). Check out the full menu below.

Kim and Hammel are using this opportunity to experiment and “test drive” some unique dishes that take them beyond what they may serve at their bricks and mortar restaurants. With their strong reputations, our bellies will happily oblige.

The kitchen is open from 11am to 5pm on Saturday, July 24th and Sunday, July 25th and is cash only.
