Much in the same way we’re bringing our favorite North Brooklyn restaurants to the Lower East Side for our B+B Bazaar this Saturday, a Bushwick bar is importing a Lower East Side chef into its kitchen. Kings County Saloon (yes, they of the smallest penis contest and clown antics) just announced a series of pop-up dinners with Sandy Hall of Black Tree.
We’re psyched, because the seasonal sando shop with the killer beer list is one of our favorite under-the-radar spots on the Lower East Side (and yes, we consider it under-the-radar even though it appeared on Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives — don’t worry, there’s nothing Guy Fieri about this mellow little place).
From Nov. 5 to Nov. 8, Hall will be serving dishes made from whole-roasted duck and pig, and then, on Nov. 9, the pop-up will wrap up with a luau ($25) featuring suckling-pig sliders and prochetta, a tiki punch, boilermakers, and “Waikiki Jello Shots” — plus live music performances by High Waisted, Las Rosas and The Mystery Lights.
Here’s the menu.
Beef Stew ($13)
Braised short rib with cheddar, herbs and chives
Duck Tacos ($10)
Pulled leg, smoked cherries, chive pesto and cilantro
Duck Bahn Mi
Leg, rillettes, liver mousse, spicy aioli, pickled carrots, cilantro
32-ounce Pig Porterhouse
