Austin Texas pop up restaurant scene is tiny but growing. The nationwide trend has found steady footing in New Orleans, New York and other cosmopolitan cities but we’re still struggling to find an identity for what will surely be a phenomenon one day. On Monday November 12th 2012, the team behind MILA in New Orleans, Slade and Allison Rushing are taking over the kitchen at Foreign and Domestic to put on a 6 course feast. MILA is one of our very favorite NOLA restaurants. Their 3 course lunch for twenty bucks is one of the best bargains in a town filled with great lunchtime deals. If you go Monday night it’ll set you back a hundred but you’ll get a copy of their brand new cookbook Southern Comfort as part of the bargain.
