Best Pop-Up Popper-Upper

Steven Reaume

Staff Pick

See POP info at the bottom of the Checker Bar page at

There are all sorts of talented pop-up folks in town, including Nate Bonkowski and his team at Cook's Crossing, Dorothy Hernandez and Jake Williams of Sarap, the globetrotting Tunde Wey, and a host of other characters. So imagine our surprise to see our favorite emerge from an actual brick-and-mortar kitchen. It's Reaume, the guy who helped develop Grand Trunk Pub's upscale grub is now curating weekly pop-ups, called POP, upstairs at Checker Bar, and even introducing his own NOODL pop-ups above Grand Trunk.
