KQprivation

If you’re living off the land, what do you do when overwintered vegetables—potatoes, carrots, turnips—begin to dwindle before the new crops in the field are ready to eat? You get creative.

KQS_Ramen-02Kensington Quarters chef John Boswell is cooking up something different at the restaurant tomorrow night. From 6 p.m. until 9 p.m., the upstairs loft space of the restaurant will become a Ramen pop-up.

The menu will include two Ramen dishes: pork Ramen ($14) and vegetable Ramen ($12). Aside from the soup, there will also be steamed buns and small charcuterie plates. For drinks, Kensington Quarters will be serving sour beer, Basque sidra, and natural wine.

No reservations are needed for the pop-up; simply walk on in and get your noodles.
