If you’ve missed the last couple of pop-up dinners at Butcher & Bee, don’t worry. They’ll be doing more of them and regularly too. The Nguyen family will be back for Vietnamese dinners, most likely doing them every other Thursday. The next one is Feb. 16.
Owner Michael Shem-Tov is committed to giving the pop-up dinners an ethnic flavor. To that end, he recently took a road trip to Moncks Corner to the only German restaurant in the area (correct me if I’m wrong) called Carolina Doener, which doesn’t sound very German. Chef Andre Beyer serves up housemade brats, sauerkraut, and doeners in his small café, and he’s agreed to come downtown for a pop-up dinner on his only day off. If you want to try some of his brats, braised cabbage, and sauerkraut, make plans to stop by Butcher & Bee on Sun. Feb. 12. The dinners are alacarte. You stand in line, order from the menu, and try to find a seat.
They are taking reservations for the German dinner too. Call or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Other dinners to note: Vegan Valentine’s Dinner on Feb. 14 and in March they’ll have a series of Lowcountry Gullah-Geechee pop-ups. I’ll share more info as I get it on that one.
