Unicorn, Olivar Pop-Up News; Nick's Lands a Chef

CAPITOL HILL— Pop-ups sure are making news today. First, word of a congee pop-up coming to Seattle this Spring by three industry guys, one of whom is Irbille Donia of the Irbille Edibles pop-up at Olivar. He says his Filipino pop-up is returning Monday February 25 and will continuing on the last Mondays of every month. He also says he is looking to expand to other restaurants around the city. On the other side of Capitol Hill, Manu Alfau (pictured) is holding his first Dominican pop-up at Unicorn this Sunday, February 24 from 6:30 to 10 pm. He says if things go well, he'd like to do it twice a month or weekly if possible until his sandwich shop, La Bodega, gets off the ground. Check out the menu! [EaterWire]

BALLARD— After several months without a chef, Nick's Off Market finally has one. The Ballard bar has hired Erick Eriksen, whose Bainbridge Island-heavy resume includes: Local Harvest, Islay Manor, Maggie Bluff's and Palisade, and Oceanaire. [Ballard News Tribune]
