Still jonesing for an El Jefe Cubano? Animal is hosting another pop-up, inspired by El Jefe, the food truck from the movie "Chef."
But this time, in addition to selling Cubanos in front of the restaurant, BBQ masters Aaron Franklin and Adam Perry Lang will be in the kitchen for a special El Jefe Austin Midnight Dinner.
The two will take over Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo's kitchen April 13 and 14. The menu details have yet to be released, but we're expecting smoked meat, and lots of it.
Dinner will include multiple courses and is priced at $85 per person.
Franklin's new cookbook, "Franklin Barbecue: A Meat-Smoking Manifesto," will also be available for purchase during the pop-up.
Call (323) 782-9225 for reservations.
435 N. Fairfax Ave., Los Angeles, www.animalrestaurant.com.
