Lauded cocktail den Dutch Kills gains a pop-up eatery from former doorman Chris Faga (a self-taught cook) and partner Natalie Blake (a trained chef). The pair will dispatch plates to drinkers at the spot's stately mahogany bar and wood booths. Pad the boozing with snacks like a slow-roasted-pork sandwich on a Portuguese roll, a build-your-own grilled cheese and a root-vegetable summer roll, plus outré drunk-food creations, such as a reinterpreted BLT made with the tomato-and-bread salad panzanella in a molded bacon "cup."
