It's been a year since the now-permanent pop-up bar Better Days debuted in Brickell. And our favorite longtime pop-up announced the opening of a second pop-up called Bareroot, launching tonight.
Think of it as your new go-to place for reinterpreted "trashy bar food." But instead of the grease and grime, expect chef-made dishes with high quality ingredients. The menu boasts small, handcrafted-bar bites best described as "food you can't help but love." Pair them with a few beers from the bar and you're good to go.
A sneak peak into the menu looks something like this: Loaded guac and chips; flour chicharrones with salsa and hot sauce; a handful of pintxos including potato, meatball and fried chicken topped with cheese, pickles and their awesome sauce or danger dust; and Reese's cups with almond butter and serrano jam.
Robert Errichetti, former chef de cuisine at Loba, and longtime friend Sam Parrish are the pair behind the new pop-up. After graduating from college, Errichetti and Parrish were cooking for friends at a party when they realized their potential as a duo. They built Bareroot from scratch, creating a pop-up kitchen concept and a catering company.
The two like reinvention so don't expect to see the same bar bites every Friday while they're at Better Days.
Bareroot first appeared at the bar during the one-year anniversary soiree. That's when the pop-up bar decided to make the pop-up resto a more permanent fixture.
