Less than a week after it was announced that NYC’s “best” barbecue restaurant would be collaborating with burger chain Shake Shack, it has been confirmed that another of the Big Apple’s essential grilled meat specialists will be arriving in the Big Smoke — for a mini summer residency.
Eater has learned that Fette Sau, a Williamsburg “pioneer”, will pop up at Hackney’s recently opened Mare Street Market from Friday 13 to Sunday 15 July.
It is Fette Sau and founder Joe Carroll’s first pop-up in the U.K. Caroll will join Mare Street Market’s creative food director Gizzi Erskine to create an a special menu for the weekend. The “Fette Sau x Mare Street Market” nine-piece menu will unite the NYC restaurant’s Texan-meets-NYC-deli style fare with Mare Street’s so-called “farmed and fired”-style cooking, which Erskine has been keen to state has a focus on produce from east London.
The menu will include Fette Sau’s smoked beef brisket, pork ribs and burnt-ends-baked beans. While Mare Street Market’s contribution will include house beef and pork sausage links, chilli and apricot barbecue sauce, and a dry meat rub infused with dark-roasted coffee from the Market’s resident roaster Flying Horse.
Brooklyn Brewery, the main partner in the event, will be in charge of refreshments: So, Brooklyn Lager, Summer Ale, Scorcher IPA and Sorachi Ace.
The pop-up kick offs Brooklyn Brewery’s summer residency at the soon-to-open outdoor terrace at Mare Street Market.
