The folks at Uncle Wolfie’s Breakfast Tavern have announced the first of a series of pop-ups meant to help showcase (and test) some of the menu items which will be making their official debut at their forthcoming restaurant, The Wolf on Broadway [read more about that here].

The pop-up is scheduled for Friday, June 10 from 5 to 8 p.m. at Uncle Wolfie’s, 234 E Vine St and will feature a menu of casual lunch items – including creative starters, salads, sandwiches and desserts – developed by Executive Chef Kristen Schwab and Sous Chef Val Bartram.

The pop-up will be walk-up only (no reservations are being accepted). If there happens to be a wait, you’ll be notified by text when there’s a table ready for you. In the meantime, you can enjoy a cocktail outside or peruse the goods at Orange and Blue Co.
