Austin Mecca Franklin Barbecue Popping Up in Chicago Next Month

Stay tuned for more info—Franklin's San Francisco popup sold out in under one minute.

Franklin Barbecue

One of America's most line-inducing destination restaurants is coming to Chicago in less than a month. Franklin BarbecueJames Beard award-winning chef Aaron Franklin's Austin barbecue mecca that's famous for its hours-long lines that only President Obama can skip, has its own Twitter handle, and prompted a 13-year-old to brave the line for people for $50 a pop, is popping up in Chicago for three days in a series of event collaborations with Land & Sea Dept., an e-blast confirms. Mark July 2-4 on your calendars, as a recent Franklin popup in San Francisco sold out in under one minute.

Exactly what the events will hold is currently unknown, as Land & Sea Dept, the folks behind Longman & Eagle, Parsons Chicken & Fish, Lost Lake and most of the food and beverage concepts in the new Chicago Athletic Association Hotel, haven't responded to multiple inquiries. Stay tuned for details and ticket info.
