With a surfeit of talented local chefs and a deficit in affordable real estate, pop-ups have become one of the most reliable means of trying new cuisines and catching alumni of big-name restaurants before they themselves blow up. Rich Table, PizzaHacker, Hillside Supper Club, Ichi Sushi + Ni Bar, and Juhu Beach Club all were once pop-ups. Since our previous pop-up heatmap is now outdated, we've rounded up a fresh crop of 14 pop-ups, all of whom are currently in operation or have done an event within the last month. Check before you head over, though, as things can often change last-minute for these seat-of-the-pants operations.
We know we probably missed some great pop-ups (they're not always easy to track!) Please share your favorites in the comments, and we'll consider them for future editions of this guide.
