Union Kitchen Pop-Up at The Bird - 5pm-9pm

Union Kitchen is, well... a kitchen. But what if a kitchen was more than the sum of its parts? More than the counters, sinks, and appliances that fill a space? What if a kitchen was the idea that a person’s life shapes the way they cook?

Union Kitchen is that idea. We cook from who we are. We train others to do the same. When we make a meal to share with you– we share our very selves.

Food is meant for more than survival. It tells us a story. It’s a story carved on wooden boards and written with folded steel. Food is scrawled in searing heat and revised with measured time. It’s a story poured from uncorked journeys and seasoned with aged strife.

Combining local traditions with those from back home, Union Kitchen will bring Hmong flavors to American palates – and forge a new expression all our own.

Chefs Yia Vang and Chris Her of Union Kitchen will be serving a special menu from 5pm-9pm.  Beer, wine and cocktail pairings available.  Reservations and tickets are not required for the pop-up.
