February is the month of pop-ups with tonight's dinner at Aster kicking things off. Aster, the latest project from the Daniel Patterson Group lead by chef-owner Brett Cooper (previously of Outerlands) is a sneak-preview of the highly anticipated Mission restaurant.  

The seven-course prix fixe menu is $75 with an optional $35 wine pairing, service is inclusive and runs for two more weeks (February 16th & 23rd) so get it while you can!

What: Aster - An upcoming collaboration between DPG and chef-owner Brett Cooper

When: Mondays in January and February; additional dates 2/16 and 2/23 

Where: Coi Restaurant, North Beach - 373 Broadway 

Decor: On my last (and first) visit to Coi, I remember the space being very unique; the dining room was all white and I wondered how it would work for a more casual pop-up. Upon arriving we noted that the dining room was no longer all white, it had been redecorated (and not just for the pop-up). There was a playlist of classic songs in the background and the guests and service team seemed to be enjoying themselves.
