Hungarian Butcher to End Popups as Chef Moves On to Ray Ray’s Hog Pit
The Hungarian Butcher will end its popups this week as the chef, Dan Varga, has accepted a position in the kitchen at Ray Ray’s Hog Pit. Varga posted on Facebook on Sunday, announcing that the Hungarian Butcher will cease operations at Platform Beer Co. and Tatoheads Public House on Saturday, September 30.
“I hope your experience with my food left you with an excellent impression of Hungarian dishes as well as a full stomach,” Varga said in his announcement. “Thank you for supporting Hungarian Butcher and believing in the food I created.”
“All hope is not lost,” he continued, revealing that his father and sister would be taking over the kitchen at Tatoheads and will continue cooking up Hungarian food under a new name: Laszlo’s.
Varga began his Tatoheads popup in May, showing up from 4 to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, and bringing his sausages, charcuterie and sandwiches to the bar’s patrons. He’ll now fill the role of Culinary and Culture Manager at Ray Ray’s Hog Pit, a barbecue restaurant that operates a food truck in Clintonville and established its first physical location in Westerville back in July.
Varga will hold a closing celebration at Tatoheads this Friday, September 29.
“Please join me for a celebration on Friday as I “Pass the Spoon” to my father and sister,” he said. “Please show them the love and support you have shown me.”
