The pop-up will offer French-inspired café cuisine, craft brews and a curated selection of wines. The name pays homage to the original culinary training café at Bok.

The eatery will feature long communal tables along with other furniture made from repurposed pieces found within the school.

Le Bok Fin will be open Thursday through Saturday from 6-11 p.m. and Sunday from 1-6 p.m., weather permitting. The entrance to the restaurant is on Mifflin Street close to 9th Street.
