In one year, the local duo behind the roving Korean restaurant haenyo has made a splash without need for a brick-and-mortar home. Tonight and tomorrow, chefs Irvin Seo and Collin Morstein celebrate their business’ first anniversary by popping up at Fells Point cocktail bar Rye.

Cuisine served will include yukhoe, a Korean version of beef tartare; tteokbokk, a spicy, stir-fried rice cake dish; and shrimp served with kimchi dumplings, among others—all made with fresh ingredients from Karma Farm in Monkton, Liberty Delight Farms in Reisterstown and Rettland Farm up in Gettysburg. The food should pair well with fine cocktails made by the pros at Rye, each of which will be based around “traditional Korean flavors,” according to the event listing.

Reservations aren’t required; just look for the pair at the back of the bar. Those who enjoy these sorts of pop-up engagements will be happy to know this is the start of a series happening at Rye, according to The Sun.

6-11 p.m. both nights, Rye, 1639 Thames St.,  (443) 438-3455, Facebook event
