Pop-up restaurants launch in Chelsea Market

Pop-up restaurants emerge in the Chelsea Market, bringing a variety of food and an opportunity to meet top chefs all to one place.

The James Beard Foundation created the unique idea of the pop-up restaurant and Vice President Mitchell Davis is proud to be behind this up and coming trend.

The West Village is home to the James Beard House, the original place where chefs join together to cook their specialties for food lovers.

The foundation is now expanding to the Chelsea Market through May 14th.

A café style atmosphere during the day will offer a high quality lunch and will then transform to provide an elegant dinner at night.

Free demos along with lectures from chefs and cook book authors will be available as well.

It will be open to the public from 11 am-4 pm, Monday through Saturday.

However, tickets are needed to take part in the pop-up restaurant dinner experience that will feature different guest chefs.

A ticket costs $75 per meal.
