Caribbean pop-up coming to EatsPlace on Georgia Avenue Fri. & Sat. Nov 3 & 4


If you like Caribbean food, or just want to try something new, swing by food incubator EatsPlace on Georgia this Friday and Saturday for Littles, their latest pop-up. It's a Caribbean spot from Brooklyn-born chef Terry Tomlinson who learned to cook from his Jamaican mother and grandmother. They'll have meat, vegetarian and vegan options, plus drinks, beer and a kids' menu. Here's more from EatsPlace, sounds pretty tasty:


WHAT:  Littles: Caribbean Pop-up at EatsPlace  
WHEN:  Friday and Saturday, November 3 and 4, 2017 starts at 5:00pm - kitchen closes at 9:00 pm

Warm up with Caribbean dishes from the Littles pop-up at EatsPlace. Imagined through the creative and innovative lens of Chef Terry Tomlinson and his wife, Littles brings alive the spirit and flavors of American and Caribbean cuisine in a rich fusion. At Littles, the plates are designed to be shared. This pop-up's goal is simple: to source the best authentic Caribbean and local ingredients, that can be enjoyed with good friends, conversation and music!

One of Chef Terry's missions is to make Caribbean food healthful for the body and soul and embrace vegan diners. In addition to classic curry and jerk meats, there will vegan entrees and sides.
