The Jackdaw is Popping Up Tonight

Get out of the house, people.

Posted By on Mon, Jan 25, 2016 at 3:17 PM

It’s been a whole lot of time indoors. I almost committed family-cide (that’s a real word, right?) when I went to get the honey and it came crashing down on my foot because it was stuck to the door of the cabinet. How does that even happen?

I need to get out. You need to get out.

Most of us are realizing that somehow we’ve managed to eat every single thing in the refrigerator over the weekend. My advice? If you can get your car over to a main road, head to Broad Street, take a quick turn on Summit Avenue and stop in at Lunch tonight, Jan. 25.

The Jackdaw, which is former Graffiato sous chef Ian Merryman’s Chinese-influenced pop-up, will make an appearance at 1213 Summit Ave. from 5:30 p.m. until the food runs out.

You can expect riffs on traditional Chinese cuisine such as dumplings with lapcheong 'nduja sausage and shrimp with apple hoisin sauce, congee with a soft-cooked egg, bonito flakes and pepitas or beef noodle soup with adobo broth, enoki mushrooms, chili noodles and leek flowers. You probably couldn't make any of this at home even if you did have the ingredients. I know my leeks aren't flowering.

Prices range from $8-$12 and for more details, follow this link to the event's Facebook page.
