Thor restaurant at The Hotel on Rivington in NY will be the temporary home to The Feast pop-up restaurant from Guerilla Culinary Brigade

We’ve seen pop-up shops, pop-up fashion shows, and most recently pop-up markets with pop-up food stands, and now NYC foodies can enjoy a sit-down, pop-up restaurant. Tonight marks the first night of The Feast, the pop-up restaurant concept by the production company Guerilla Culinary Brigade featuring celebrity guest chefs and mixologists in different culinary destinations nationwide.

The Feast’s first theme will be “Roaring ‘20s: Speakeasy & Steakhouse” and will represent a “Jazz Age” dinner party held in a 1920’s chophouse. The event opens October 21 and closes October 23, with dinner at 7 pm at The Hotel on Rivington.

Guest Chef Seamus Mullen, former owner and chef of Boquería and contestant on The Next Iron Chef, has created a menu inspired by an original menu from the 21 Club, circa 1922, a time when the restaurant was in its speakeasy glory and known as The Red Head. The pop-up menu includes amuses bouches (malpeque oysters dusted in cornmeal, roasted fennel aioli and citrus); warm smoked brook trout; dry aged New York strip steak; and a dark chocolate arbequina olive oil mousse. New York’s own mixologist Ben Demarchelier (Brasserie Cognac, Monkey Bar, l’Oubli) has also designed a varied cocktail menu to enjoy while listening to the live swing band and other performers. Reservations are required.
