Popping Up All Over Boston

From the cronut to the kale craze, it seems that every week there is a new culinary trend to hop on to. The great thing about living in Boston is that it is such an innovative culinary landscape; there is always something new and exciting to try. One trend to take advantage of this fall is the pop-up shop. Pop-up shops are relatively new to the food scene and offer a one-of-a-kind experience for attendees. 

Usually put on by collaborating chefs or restaurants having a themed dinner, the pop-up shop has taken on a unique meaning in Boston. Some of the most exciting pop-ups going on in our city right now include the Bagelsaurus at Cutty’s in Brookline and the Stacked Donuts and Trademark Tarts pop-up that has been seen at restaurants (like Mei Mei!) throughout the city.

These events are great opportunities for start-ups to gauge their spot in the culinary scene and perfect their menus before officially opening locations. And these pop-ups have shown a high success rate thus far—Bagelsaurus is opening its first location in Porter Square, Cambridge this fall, and I know I am personally waiting on Party of Two Catering to give a permanent home to Stacked Donuts and Trademark Tarts. 

These pop-ups aren’t only delicious additions to Boston, but they are also a great way to showcase local artisans and small businesses.  Mom and Pop-Up in Fenway is the perfect cohesion, with a rotating mix of local restaurant and craft events. Some of these events have included a Ramen pop-up from the chefs of Sweet Cheeks Q and a punk rock record pop-up with the folks at Tres Gatos in Jamaica Plain. 

The month-long pop-ups have been receiving lots of buzz for their weekly events hosted by the ever-popular Toscanini’s ice cream shop of Cambridge and Union Square Donuts of Somerville. Dubbed the Done Zone, fans have been lining up every Saturday night to sample a donut sandwich filled with a scoop of Toscanini’s ice cream or a donut kabob from the infamous donut maker. Unfortunately, the last Done Zone was this Saturday, Oct. 11, but there are still some exciting events to check out before the pop-up ends next weekend.

The month of pop-ups wrapped up with a farm stand and miniature pies of all kinds from Treats on Washington. We can’t wait to see what The Fenway has in store for future pop-ups over at 1377 Boylston!
