On behalf of Maine Shack owner and New England native, Drew Ryan, we are excited to announce Maine Shack's Pop-up at Fat Kat Slim’s on Wednesday, February 12 from 4:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.  Drew is collaborating with some of his long-time friends from the music industry in Nashville to bring the traditional taste of New England to the Music City. 

Maine Shack is Denver’s newest fast casual sensation inspired by New England-style seafood joints, brought to life by Maine Native Drew Ryan. This beloved and critically acclaimed shack offers a traditional taste of Maine, with seafood and ingredients sourced directly from the Gulf of Maine, including fresh lobster from Greenhead Lobster Company that is wild-caught by a  dedicated fleet of lobstermen and women. The same goes for the clams, which come from Ipswich, MA and both are flown from shores of Maine and picked up personally by the Maine Shack team every other day.

The pop-up will feature a menu of Maine Shack favorites, served counter-service style, alongside a limited menu of Fat Kat Slim classics. The pop-up menu is scheduled to include:

Six-styles of Lobster Rolls, each served with 4oz claw and knuckle meat on a butter toasted New England frank bun, including:

Maine Shack Roll with mayo and drizzled butter; 

Connecticut Roll with lobster poached in clarified butter; 

Brown Butter Roll with lobster poached in brown butter; 

Fancy Roll with cucumber, celery, herbs, lemon, mayo and Bibb lettuce; 

Naked Roll with fresh knuckle and claw meat; 

Lobsterado Roll with a 4oz steamed lobster tail on top of either the Maine Shack Roll or Brown Butter Roll

Whole Belly Fried Clams with house-made tartar sauce

Steamer Clams with hot broth and butter

Clam Chowder A variety of beers from Maine

Maine Shack’s pop-up menu will be available on Wednesday, 2/12, from 4:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Fat Kat Slim’s is located at 730 8th Ave S, Nashville, TN 37203.
