Mr. Pollo chef now doing a pop-up [SF]

Manny Torres Giminez, the chef/proprietor of Mr. Pollo, is now doing pop-ups a couple doors down at Roxy's Cafe. Mr. Pollo is still open and running but Manny himself is over at Roxy's doing a pop-up there. Noticed it as I was walking back from grabbing a soda at the Fizzary.

After several failed attempts to get into Mr. Pollo the past couple years, decided to take advantage of the opportunity and stopped in. Had a $20 four course meal with butternut squash soup, salad, bolognese pasta, and pumpkin ravioli in brown butter sauce. Everything was pretty good. Seems that he's using the pop-up to experiment with doing new things, given the Italian slant of the dishes.

He says he'll be there Mon-Sat for lunch and dinner doing what he's doing.
