Marin Jumps On the Pop Up Restaurant Bandwagon

    Even San Francisco's fair sister to the north, Marin, is embracing the pop-up restaurant trend.

    And by embracing the trend, we mean duplicating the Mission Street Food idea.

    Marin's Theresa & Johnny's restaurant hands the keys over to a guest chef at night after the restaurant closes.

    The guest chef, skilled in a particular type of food, then creates a unique menu, with all the items being served up for under $10.

    The restaurant then remains open until the cook runs out of food.

    Leslie Burnside, the owner and chef of Theresa & Johnny's, said she has had two succesful events so far.

    "We're still trying to figure it out," she told the Marin Independent Journal. "We want people to come in, have a good time, have good things to eat and not break the pocketbook."

    The best part is that all the proceeds go to a local non-profit organization.
