Taylor Knapp pours a cup of black locust tea for Jessica Melendez of Southold at a PawPaw pop-up dinner last June.

Last year, we included the PawPaw pop-up dinners among the coolest things to happen on the North Fork.

Now being planned for two seatings on Saturday nights and costing $10 less per plate, PawPaw is even cooler in 2016. 

The brainchild of North Fork chef Taylor Knapp, the 16-seat weekly dinner features mostly local items, many of them foraged, and the menu is dictated by season. Knapp prepares the meals while his fiancée, Katelyn Luce, runs the front of the house. It’s held each week at The Cheese Emporium by Bruce & Son on Main Street in Greenport.

The couple is now taking reservations, which are required, for the new season, which kicks off April 2. Seatings are for 6 and 8 p.m. and can be made directly at pawpawpopup.com. This year the price has been lowered to $55 a plate.

If you feel like salivating at some point between now and the first pop-up of the year, check out the photos below from our editor’s June 2015 feature PawPaw.
