Big Bad Pop Ups to Return

Posted By on Fri, Jan 16, 2015 at 11:24 AM


Oxford super chef John Currence is bringing back the Big Bad Pop Ups at City Grocery

The pop up restaurants are set by theme, with menus of low-cost small plates designed by City Grocery folks and visiting chefs: 

Monday-Tuesday, January 19-20
The “Sleepy Dragon Project”
City Grocery Restaurant Group previews a American-Chinese menu they have been toying with.

Monday-Tuesday, January 26-27
“Mumbai, Mississippi”
Chefs Vishwesh Bhatt and Asha Gomez, of Atlanta, make Southern-influenced Indian street food.

Monday-Tuesday, February 2-3
“Second Line 662”
Chef Kelly English previews dishes from his Oxford location of Second Line, set to open late spring 2015.

Monday-Tuesday, February 9-10
“The 132 Foot Journey”
City Grocery welcomes neighbor and friend Corbin Evans of the Oxford Canteen for a taste of North Mississippi “Alley Food.”

The first Big Bad Pop Up, in 2013, was a time-filler of sorts. Currence put together the series while City Grocery was being renovated. This year's pop ups, the third, will benefit the University of Mississippi Medical Center Children's Hospital Fund.
