Pop-up suggestion for Los Angeles/Long Beach/Northern Orange County

I've never tried a pop up. I'll be in the Los Angeles area the last weekend of this month. What can people suggest would be nice for $40 or less per person? One of my anticipated dining partners does not like spicy food.
Free or cheap corkage is a plus, but not mandatory.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

  1. Might help us if you can clarify your definition of a "pop up" (or Pop-up - you spelled it two different ways in the same post!). I've only seen it used in one other post.

      Sorry, I've been reading about it. I thought it was fairly common term.
      So LudoBites would have been an example of a pop up restaurant.

        Thanks for the link. It was rather testy but I finally got it to go through.
        Pop-up - Very interesting concept. A restaurant chef and crew that come in and do special menus just for a short run of time, then close down and re-appear somewhere else with possibly/probably new menus, etc. in a new venue.

        This will make the IRS folks crazy trying to keep track of them. Love it!

    2. Check out Taste Kitchen. Prices change with each different chef.

        Test Kitchen, not Taste Kitchen... (link is correct)
