WEST THIRD— Large Marge, a pop-up that takes place at Son of a Gun on Sundays, commenced this past weekend with Courtney McBroom and Leslie Behrens, both of whom hail from NYC's Momofuku Milk Bar. With six courses and a slew of cocktails, the duo is hoping to turn the pop-up concept into a brick and mortar some time in 2015. In the meantime, Large Marge returns to Son of a Gun this coming Sunday, November 23, with a $45, 4-course prix fixe available at lunch. Check out the food and menus below, and see the Tumblr for updated information.
