POP-UP RESTAURANT: Bob’s Kitchen, the trendy vegetarian restaurant tucked away in Paris’ Marais district, will host dinners by The Fat Radish during fashion week.

From Sept. 26 to Oct. 2, chefs from the vegetarian eatery on Manhattan’s Orchard Street will serve up some of Fat Radish’s signature dishes. Cucumber soup, chanterelle mushroom ceviche, braised spelt grain with kale pesto and a goat-cheese cake with poached plums and basil paired with wine chosen by Juan Sanchez, owner of La Dernière Goutte, all appear on the five-course tasting menu that’s priced at 85 euros, ($111.50). Guests may also sample beer from Mimi’s Beer, a fashion shop on Paris’ Rue de Bretagne that brews its own organic ale.

Former fashion executives Jenna Capano and Tara Gilson are behind the Fat Radish project. They plan to host a pop-up restaurant every month in either Paris or New York.

So what will they bring back to New York City? Said Capano: “I can say that we are huge fans of Parisian restaurants Roseval, Le Galopin and Le Dauphin.”
