When we last checked in with playful, inventive French chef David Féau, he was at his February Coin de Rue pop-up at Red Medicine, serving dishes like carrot candy and foie gras bonbons with black truffles.
On Thursday at the Michael J’s Pizzeria & Bar space in Chinatown, Féau will start his Chinese-influenced Coin de Rue 13ème pop-up (the 13th arrondissement of Paris is largely Chinese) with a new arsenal of prix-fixe dishes like an East-West raw shaved carrot salad, clay-pot-baked Alaskan halibut, and a spring lamb stew with Medjool dates, rainbow chard, Picholine olives, and potato gnocchi. Foie gras shows up with a forbidden rice lettuce roll as a supplemental selection.
The menu is $49 for three courses, with supplemental dishes for $18 and the option of a $20 wine pairing. There will also be bar bites available a la carte, as well as classic cocktails from barman Garrett McKechnie (The Raymond 1886).
Coin de Rue 13ème, 643 N. Spring St., April 16-18, April 23-25, and April 30-May 1. The bar menu will be served from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., and dinner seatings are from 7 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. For reservations, call 213-604-3421.
