Mason Dixie Biscuit Co. will make its public debut with a pop-up this Saturday and Sunday at Dolcezza’s Union Market factory. Expect to find biscuit sandwiches with stuffings like Benton’s bacon, fried egg, cheddar, and maple aioli as well as fried chicken, bacon, honey, and cayenne. The menu will also include biscuits with various spreads like stone fruit and herb jam and hazelnut honey butter—plus sides like collards and macaroni salad. (Main dishes will go for $4.50 to $8 and sides will cost $2.) Chase it down with sweet tea and blueberry thyme lemonade.
The Union Market pop-up will go from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. During that time, you can also get some southern gelato and sorbet flavors like blackberries and cream, sweet corn, and yellow peach Southern Comfort. Dolcezza and Mason Dixie Biscuit Co. also collaborated on a sundae—or “copetta”—with sweet corn gelato, black raspberry jam, and biscuits. You can also have it served as a biscuit ice cream sandwich. Take that, doughnut ice cream sandwich.
Founders Ayesha Abuelhiga, Mo Cherry, and chef Jason Gehring are in the midst of a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for a Petworth pop-up which will eventually lead to a permanent establishment. So far, they’ve raised slightly more than $12,000 toward their $27,500 goal.
