Pizza hot spot Emily's becomes even more of a destination when, once a month, Adam Kuban takes over with this pop-up. The founder of the defunct pizza blog Slice specializes in thin, crispy bar-style pizza. The menu rarely changes and includes pies like the classic Margot-rita, Love Supreme (sausage, green peppers and red onion) and Hot Supreme (sausage, pickled jalapeños and red onion), with vegan options too. The pop-up has drawn a rabid following since launching last year, with tickets selling out as soon as they're available. If you're a fan, or want to try a slice, Kuban recently released dates for his next pop-ups: Feb. 27, March 19, April 16, May 14 and June 18 (later dates TBD). Tickets go on sale the Saturday before at noon. Sign up for the mailing list to be the first to know, and keep a lookout for news on a brick-and-mortar location in the works. When all else fails, you can check out the pop-up's Instagram (@margotspizza) for drool-worthy photos of pies. 919 Fulton St., Clinton Hill,

Wunderkind Flynn McGarry has been drawing buzz since he was 11 years old, when he started a supper club at his parent's house. Since then, he's launched a monthly pop-up restaurant in Los Angeles, was on the cover of New York Times Magazine and was named a 30 under 30 Zagat Los Angeles honoree and one of Time's 25 most influential teens (twice). Now New Yorkers can see what all the fuss is about with the 16-year-old's pop-up chef's counter Eureka NYC at Creative Edge in the West Village. Reservations to the 12-seat, 14-course tasting menu were tough to score when the weekend pop-up first launched in September, but seats have recently been released up until Dec. 13, and a seven-course lunch has been added. $80 for lunch, $160 for dinner with an optional $80 wine pairing (includes tax and gratuity); 639 Washington St.,

Prepare to be surprised. Bo Bech, of the famed Copenhagen restaurant Geist, is turning his culinary sights on New York City. He is in the midst of looking at spaces for a new restaurant here, but first, New Yorkers can get a taste of the modern chef with his new series of pop-up dinners, The Bride of the Fox. Details are tantalizingly scarce: Dinners will be announced one date at a time, with the multicourse menu and location revealed later (the meal might be served in a gallery, home or restaurant). Diners can request a seat by emailing with their name, number and number of guests, and the lucky few will be picked by random. Starts Nov. 16,
