Trendy rooftop spot Bok Bar, perched eight stories high atop the former Bok Tech building at 8th and Mifflin Streets, reopens for for a third season on Thursday, May 25 — and they’ll be serving up dumplings and a slew of pop-up dinners all summer long.
Bok owner Lindsey Scannapieco has snagged bar manager-turned-dumpling-maker Hayden Mink to run foodservice at the bar as Humble Dumplings. Mink will serve up rice bowls and pork and veggie dumplings, as well as crisp, tender scallion pancakes, a dim sum staple, folded and filled with pork belly and pickles — “very yummy and a bit different,” Scannapieco says.
She’s also planning several one-off food events, like a midsummer feast in the form of a ticketed dinner with Noord’sJoncarl Lachman, Fond’sLee Styer, and Josh Lawler of Farm & Fisherman — Scannapieco describes it as “a Nordic feast featuring aquavit, lots of fish and salad, a maypole and flower crowns.”
Check out the full Humble Dumplings menu, and visit Bok Bar Wednesdays from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m., Thursdays from 5 p.m. to 12 a.m., Fridays from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m., Saturdays from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m., and Sundays — family day, when dogs and children are welcome — from 12 p.m to 10 p.m. starting May 25.
