Ambitious young chef Manny Torres Gimenez of Mr. Pollo fame has just expanded his pop-up operation a few doors with a second, pasta-focused affair at Roxy's Cafe (2847 Mission at 24th). As Chowhounder Dude Swenson reports, the Roxy's deal is four courses for a ridicuous $20, and one example menu was a butternut squash soup, followed by a salad, and two handmade pastas: a bolognese pasta, and pumpkin ravioli in brown butter sauce. The expansion makes sense given Gimenez's resume he was previously on the line at Quince and SPQR. Gimenez remains at Mr. Pollo as well, and is dividing his time between the two. [Chow via Scoop]
