Up-Island heads downtown next week as chef and farmer Chris Fischer opens a popup restaurant in New York city. Mr. Fischer, the chef at the Beach Plum Restaurant in Chilmark, is converting the old Bowery street subway station into Fish and Rose. The restaurant will be open for three weeks beginning Dec. 10 every night for dinner through Dec. 30. Food will come from the Fischer family’s Beetlebung Farm and other Island farms, as well as from farms in New York, he said.
Mr. Fischer is bringing the Beach Plum crew with him, including sous chef Lee Desrosiers and pastry chef Olivia Pattison.
The abandoned subway station at 10 Kenmare street once served as the old Bowery stop on the J-line. With its traditional white tile of the city’s subway system, the station is now an event space.
