UPDATE: Thu., July 12, 2:36pm –- Since posting this story, we connected with chef Josh Galliano, who divulged a couple more details.
He says he has the location secured for the fried chicken pop-up restaurant, but he’s working to get promotional flyers designed before he announces it. The special culinary opportunity will only be offered for one day – Mon., Aug. 13 - because the restaurant he’ll be operating out of isn’t open that evening.
Galliano is working on the rest of the menu now, which will consist of snacks, five appetizers, five entrees and pies for dessert. There also will be drinks created specifically for that day, ranging from “classic to homage to the food of the night to more modern,” he says.
More as we learn it.
If you’re a fan of fried chicken, you’ll want to clear your calendar on this date: Mon., Aug. 13. At a yet-to-be-announced time that day, St. Louis chef Josh Galliano will be launching a pop-up restaurant to serve the summertime staple at an also yet-to-be-announced location in St. Louis.
Galliano announced the project this morning via his Twitter handle, @cookingkid, with this tweet:
Just a heads up - my fried chicken pop-up restaurant will be a reality on Monday, August 13! Details to come soon.
The local food scene has been anxiously awaiting the former Monarch executive chef’s next move since the Maplewood restaurant closed in March. Galliano’s talents in the kitchen have garnered a local fan base, and the national scene has taken notice as well. This year, he was one of four St. Louis chefs to make the James Beard Awards semifinalist list for Best Chef: Midwest, and he won Food & Wine’s People’s Best New Chef, Midwest.
More details on the pop-up restaurant as we receive them, and, of course, at @cookingkid.
