Northern Spy’s Kale Salad Is Pulling an LCD Soundsystem at This Burger Pop-Up

It’s been a month and a half since Northern Spy Food Co. left the East Village and took its coffee seltzer with it (luckily, we snagged the recipe). Now, its lovely space on East 12th Street is coming back from the dead one last time. Fleishers Craft Butchery, the other company co-owned by Christophe Hille, is doing a pop-up burger joint there next weekend. And just like LCD Soundsystem, Northern Spy’s beloved kale salad is making an unexpectedly swift return.

Friday, April 15 to Sunday, April 17, Fleishers will be cooking up patties made with its local, sustainable, pasture-raised meats, which you know and love from burgers like the one at Red Hook’s Grindhaus, named best in the city by Village Voice readers. The menu, below, will feature three varieties of burgers (including a bacon, egg and cheese number) as well as beef-fat fries and Northern Spy’s kale salad. (You know, to cut all the beef fat.) Beer, wine, and brunch bevies will also be served.

You’ll want to bring friends to this: for every burger downed at the pop-up, Trinity Lower East Side‘s soup kitchen gets six ounces of pasture-raised beef.

Classic American Burger – $12
Classic blend of NY State pasture-raised beef with American cheese, special sauce, red onion and lettuce

100% Grass-fed Burger – $13
NY State grass-fed beef with lettuce, tomato and onion

The Bacon Egg & Cheeseburger – $15
Made from NY State pasture-raised beef & bacon blend, sunny fried egg, American cheese

Beef Fat Fries – $6

Northern Spy’s Famous Kale Salad – $12

Fleishers Burger Pop-up, 511 East 12th Street, April 15 to April 17; Friday from 5:30pm to 11pm, Saturday from 11am to 11pm, Sunday from 11am to 4pm.

Pour One Out (a Coffee Seltzer, That Is) For Northern Spy Food Co.

On Saturday, the weather took a brief and unexpected turn into iced coffee territory and I found myself craving the city’s most delicious and instantly effective caffeinated beverage: the coffee seltzer at Northern Spy Food Co. But as fate would have it, the seven-year-old brunch standby had closed just days earlier. Somehow I had missed the heads up, a couple of weeks prior, from owners Christophe Hille and Chris Ronis.
