Former Indaco executive chef Michael Holler will debut his Mexican-inspired pop-up Albatross Bar at Renzo on Father’s Day, Sunday, June 20. Grab your dad and head to Huger Street for three types of tacos, an octopus tostada and churros, which will be available from 11 a.m.-3 p.m.
According to the Georgia native, who will run the pop-up with Sam Schultz, Albatross Bar is a “love letter to the 24-hour taquerias of Buford Highway in Atlanta.”
“Buford Highway is like the big, big version of North Charleston Rivers Avenue in Atlanta. You can find any type of food that you want there,” Holler said. “I’m missing some of that, so I figured let’s see if we can bring some of that to Charleston.”
At the inaugural pop-up, Holler and Schultz will serve three types of tacos: adobo braised brisket, carnitas Michoacan-style and grilled maitake mushroom (vegetarian). There will also be a cucumber salad, black mole with warm tortillas, octopus tostada and churros for dessert.
Albatross Bar is starting out as a pop-up, but Holler hopes to eventually land a permanent location.
“From here, the plan is to ideally find a spot on the peninsula,” he said, “but it might live as a pop-up for a while.”
