Queer Pop-Up Series Comes To Brooklyn

Eric See, a queer chef and the owner of Ursula in Crown Heights is launching a new pop up series with six New York chefs taking over the premises in the coming weeks. Find out who and when.

Eric See, a queer chef and the owner of Ursula in Crown Heights is launching a takeout series at his New Mexican cafe this month, where six different NYC-based chefs will be taking over his restaurant in a series of pop-ups.

Speaking about the new series See said: “I have a lot of queer friends who have food businesses or restaurants that have had to pivot entirely or they lost their businesses... the motivation for this [series] is to buoy the community and bring some of that ideology back into this space.”

Diners can expect everything from tamales and pelmeni, to carrot flan and lumpia in the coming weeks.

Here's the line-up of pop-up dinners:

February 15th & 16th: Woldy Kusina
