Pop-up eatery preps for finale before moving to permanent home
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Tonight a pop-up diner is taking over the Dixie Grill in downtown Wilmington for one night only before heading for a new, permanent home in the Brooklyn Arts District.
Two years ago Canape started as a one-night-only dinner in Mana. Throughout the last year it has continued with weekly pop-ups at San Juan Café.
Canape’s goal is to end its pop-up days with a bang and show customers what they can look forward to when the business moves into its new home on N. 4th St. downtown.
For tonight’s dinner they are serving a seven-course meal featuring oysters picked off of Figure 8 Island, locally-caught fish and produce from local farmers.
Canape chef Matthew Gould says pop-ups could add a new spice to downtown Wilmington.
“I think it’s awesome,” Gould said. “The big part of it that we like is that it’s a food culture and a community downtown, and if we can all kind of join together to create a really cool and fun food scene, then that’s really where it’s at.”
Organizers say both seatings tonight are already sold out.
