This summer, NYC is ready to pop.

Right now, city eateries — serving everything from Japanese katsu to Indian street food to oysters — are opening new spinoff shops in food markets, within other restaurants, on rooftops and even inside skating rinks.

Citing a dismal year of lockdowns, ever-changing regulations, staffing issues and a lack of institutional investment, pop-ups offer chefs the opportunity to express their pent-up creative energy without the risks associated with a traditional brick-and-mortar space.

“These kinds of pop-ups are nice [because] you don’t think so much about the long term,” said chef Nir Sarig, who founded the Middle Eastern pop-up Eti. “So you allow yourself to be bolder and to take more risks.”

Whether you’re craving a cheap sandwich or an upscale three-course meal, check out these seven pop-up restaurants that are absolutely worth braving the summer heat for.
