Correction: No toast for the masses at Larkin Square's Wed. fete

CORRECTION: Kevin Gardner says he just learned that this is not a public event, and offers his regrets. So if you go there, unless you were already on the invite list, you will not get toast. A prior version of this item said otherwise.


Outside Buffalo, the restaurant world's new darling is pop-ups - chefs doing one-night menus in other restaurants or unsual locations. When Five Points Bakery gets its toast menu cranking at Larkin Square on Wednesday, with six heavy-duty toasters firing at once, it'll make pop-up history.

It's a one-night-only deal as part of the cermonial opening of the plaza, at Seneca and Swan streets, from 5-9 p.m. Five Points partner Kevin Gardner said.

"Everything we do, it'll be hot off the presses," Gardner said. Their setup can make 24 slices of toast per cycle, meaning they'll try to keep the line moving. For only $3 (less than at the Five Points Bakery itself), eaters can try toast combos aimed at pairing with adult beverages, Gardner said:

Extra sharp cheddar toast with French St. Agur blue cheese and Frank's hot sauce, whole wheat with homemade spicy garlic free-range egg mayonnaise, hardboiled egg and fresh ground pepper; vollkornbrot (100-percent rye sourdough) with raclette cheese and organic sauerkraut.
