This is a post by N&O restaurant critic Greg Cox:
Ninth Street Bakery chef Matt Props has teamed up with local baker Ari Berenbaum to open Day One (136 E. Chapel Hill St.; 919-688-5606), a pop-up restaurant that serves vegan fare on Saturday nights.
Seating is first-come, first-served for the dinners, which are served from 5:30-11 p.m. at Ninth Street Bakery.
Berenbaum, who owns Berenbaum’s (berenbaums.com) bake stand and bicycle delivery service, says the menu will change weekly, with occasional repeats of especially popular dinners.
This coming Saturday night, highlights of the Southern Soul menu will include chicken-fried tofu, smoky collards, vegan mac ‘n’ cheese and a hoppin’ John salad with Tabasco vinaigrette. Beverage options will include craft beers and nonalcoholic beverages. The soundtrack - naturally - will be soul music.
For more details, check Day One’s Facebook page.
