90s Nostalgia Is On The Menu At San Diego's Freshman Year Pop-Up

March 11, 2021

1990's nostalgia will be on the menu at chef-driven comfort food concept Freshman Year, initially launching as a pop-up at Atypical Waffle in San Diego's North Park.

From Alabama native Logan Kendall, who was previously the Director Of Culinary for Chefs Roll and Executive Chef for the restaurant group behind Streetcar and Suckerfree, Freshman Year launched this past weekend as a temporary pop-up cooking from Atypical Waffle's repurposed Airstream trailer in North Park. The eatery will start off as reoccuring pop-up concept until Chef Logan gets his restaurant permit and can operate on a more permanent basis. Eventually he hopes his restaurant will be a shared incubator space for young cooks to help them get their concepts off ground.

Freshman Year will offer a handful of specials each week inspired by classic comfort foods of the 1990s. Think adult Bagel Bites, Uncrustable French toast, unique Pop Tarts, brunchy Hot Pockets, stuffed biscuit sandwiches, French toast McGriddles, as well as classic soft drinks concoctions like cereal milk lattes and Capri Sun Cold Brew in partnership with Coffee & Tea Collective.
