The pop-up of a pop-up donates a meal for every $12 spent.
The Migrant Kitchen’s residency at Time Out Market New York this weekend is actually a pop-up of a pop-up presently operating with the cooperation of a group of bars on Stone Street. It’s an ongoing initiative led by Nasser Jaber and his business partner Dan Dorado. While Dorado was working as the chef de cuisine at Ilili, a Lebanese restaurant in Nomad, Jaber had been running his own place on the Lower East Side, where his refugee dinner program ultimately fed thousands and garnered international attention. All of the dishes sold this weekend will amount to a meal in need for every $12 spent. Check out the full menu below and you can read more about the history of the program and its Time Out Market New York extension here. You'll be able to find the pop-up on Time Out Market New York's first floor.
