Best Pop-Up (Dinner) 

Pink Zebra

Let's just come right out and say it: Pink Zebra wants to be the Japanese equivalent of Mission Chinese Food. It's a five-nights-a-week pop-up with a hipster vibe that engulfed a forgettable restaurant, serves things like beef tongue with toasted pepitas popcorn with crispy pig ears, but chef Jesse Koide is also the guy running the show over at Lung Shan while Danny Bowien gets his NYC locations going. Only 10 lucky diners get Pink Zebra's omakase treatment on a given night (five seats, two seatings) but the izakaya menu is strong and changes often. It ain't cheap, but clams with lamb chorizo and black garlic shoyu are worth the splurge.
