More Regional Southern Fare Hits BK in Truck/Pop Up Form

New, 4 comments

It looks like there's a mini Southern food renaissance taking place out in North Brooklyn. Today, the Times files on Jen 'n' Outlaw's Fish Fry and Crawfish Boil, a roving truck/performance that makes its official debut in Bushwick off the Morgan L stop this weekend (though there was already a pilot run earlier this month). They serve regional southern fare like po' boys, crawfish, catfish, and fried pickles, served on the go or on a picnic table off the back of the truck. More info here.

Meanwhile, Sarah DiGregorio filed her review this week on Honeychiles', the Southern food pop-up restaurant inside Williamsburg dive bar The Charleston. Not only do they serve New York's only french fry and gravy po' boy ("It's like a French dip, but with fries"), they also serve food that "easily surpasses the cooking at New York's many new upscale Southern restaurants." Plus, of course, they're planning on expanding with a food truck.
