Logan Square Kitchen to Host "Gypsy" Pop-up Restaurant

2011_7_gypsy-event.jpegDuring next weekend's Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival, the shared-use event space and sometimes dining destination Logan Square Kitchen will be taken over by Gypsy, a pop-up restaurant whose menu will riff on the flavors of street food from all over the world. Chefs Oliver Poilevey and Scott Jambrosek, of La Sardine and Le Bouchon, are behind Gypsy, which follows in the footsteps of Bill Kim (Urban Belly, Belly Shack) and Jason Hammel's (Lula Café, Nightwood) street-food-inspired LSK pop-up that fed last year's fest.

The (cash-only) Gypsy menu will feature fried risotto balls with romesco sauce; duck tacos with pickled onion, cilantro and citrus; and vegetarian crepes. For dessert, choose between peanut butter and jelly ice cream or mojito sorbet. Or, if this extreme heat has managed to stick around, just get both. Dishes are designed for takeaway, although the LSK does offer some on-premises seating. Pints of local craft beer will be available for $5; red and white wines will cost $5 and $8 a glass.

Logan Square Kitchen is located at 2333 North Milwaukee Avenue.
