Before opening new concepts, chefs and restaurants tend to test the water in Charleston with highly-anticipated pop-up nights. It gives audiences a chance to learn about the food and teams behind the food an opportunity to look into their potential guests. As various events come up on the Lowcountry calendar, we'll add them here. Right now, look for ramen and barbecue this month and next.

If we missed anyone, let us know, and we'll keep the list up to date.

Forthcoming St. Phillip Street restaurant Seed from siblings Jill Schenzel and Macready Downer previews its menu with two ticketed tastings, a cocktail menu takeover, and late night a la carte offerings at hip hangout Faculty Lounge.

DATES: Wednesday, March 9 with seatings at 6:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Tickets found here

Brisket master John Lewis pairs up with chef Damon Wise for a late night Tex-Mex feast. For life-changing enchiladas, tostadas, and Texas barbecue, reserve Friday to visit the pop-up from 8:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. at Butcher & Bee. Prices will vary and beer, wine, and agua frescas will be available. This is the last time for a Lewis barbecue fix before his restaurant opens.

DATES: Friday, March 11, from 8:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m.
