Burgers will be popping up this weekend at the former Northern Spy space on East 12th Street

After six years, Northern Spy's owners decided to call it quits this past February. However, the space at 511 E. 12th St. between Avenue A and Avenue B will be put to use again this weekend.

Here are details via the EVG inbox...

Fleishers Craft Butchery is running a pop-up burger joint for one weekend ONLY, at the former Northern Spy Food Co. space today through Sunday. (Northern Spy Food Co. partner Christophe Hille is also CFO and an owner of Fleishers — hence the utilization of the NSFCo space for one last time.)


• Classic American Burger $12
Classic blend of NY State pasture-raised beef with American cheese, special sauce, red onion and lettuce

• 100% Grass-fed Burger $13
NY State grass-fed beef with lettuce, tomato and onion

• The Bacon Egg & Cheeseburger $15
Made from NY State pasture-raised beef & bacon blend, sunny fried egg, American cheese

• Beef Fat Fries $6

• Northern Spy's Famous Kale Salad $12

•Beer, Wine and Brunch Cocktails will be available

And, these burgers are for a good cause: for every burger Fleishers sells at the pop-up, it is donating 6 oz of NY State pasture-raised beef to Trinity Lower East Side's “Service and Food for the Homeless” kitchen on East Ninth Street and Avenue B.

All that NY State sourced food reminds of this recent read that sometimes, it just ain't so At Tampa Bay farm-to-table restaurants, you’re being fed fiction

9:25 - thanks for posting that.
Great read - I've suspected as much all along.

Yes, right @9:25
Anybody claiming food comes from "NY State" is BS'ing us.

I am outing myself as old and out of touch but doesn't a "pop-up" of this ilk fly in the face of common sense and decency? As in, if product/service was that good and that worthwhile, why not just sign a proper lease somewhere and do business and stop with the annoying popping up here and there.

The burgers sound great, but here is an even better cause: give the business instead to the hardworking food folks who dare to sign leases and put down roots and be part of this community. Not some fly-by-night outsiders who decide to "pop-in" for a weekend. Westville East has great burgers for example. Yes I know the people behind this popup are the same behind Northern Spy. Don't care. Point still stands.

$12-$15 for a burger?! Stop this madness. Too expensive.

So pop up food places can serve cocktails without a licences? I knew something fishy (or beefy) was up when our good neighbors at Northern Spy closed shop weeks after securing a liquor license.

I am surprised they are allowed to do pop-up food there. Doesn't the kitchen have to be inspected, etc.?
