Two upcoming pop-ups on the horizon for all you underground dining fans: First off we have a pair of fried-chicken dinners and a fried-chicken brunch at Rebel (1760 Market Street) this weekend from Evan and Sarah Rich — the same former Coi chefs who’ve been doing Chef’s Night Off at Radius.

The a la carte brunch, featuring a fried chicken sandwich as well as shrimp and grits and sardine toasts, will run from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, September 11. Then, the Riches will be serving dinner that night at Rebel from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m, and again on Monday night. See the menu below.
