BETHEL, CT — The chefs at Daily Fare will be serving up Ethiopian cuisine for one night only as part of a “pop up” restaurant in downtown Bethel Monday during the chamber’s annual Bethel Restaurant Week.
About 20 restaurants throughout the downtown, as well as the Stony Hill corridor, will be participating in the event now in its fourth year.
“It’s a great way to promote the restaurants and all that Bethel has to offer,” said Robin Grubard, co-owner of the Daily Fare, a breakfast and lunch eatery located in the train station. “We’ve done pop up events before and we thought it would be a great way to participate in restaurant week.”
Grubard said she fell in love with Ethiopian food after she and her husband adopted an Ethiopian child about five years ago. Besides Ethiopian delicacies, Grubard said the event will include traditional music and two seatings, one of which is already booked.
“If it’s really popular and we have a big enough wait list we’ll hold another event in a few weeks,” she said.
Past pop up events that Grubard has held include pop up children’s cooking classes. Future ideas include a chocolate and wine paring night, she added.
