Law360 quoted Bruce Bronster (Partner, New York) in an October 25, 2013 article entitled "6 Key Ingredients For Pop-Up Restaurant Deals," which offers best practices for pop-up restaurants to avoid zoning, employment and liability issues.

Bruce explains the benefit of subleasing from an existing restaurant space, saying, "You're taking advantage of the infrastructure," and noting "that can extend beyond the actual culinary infrastructure to various licenses and permits that need to be secured for operation, as well as point-of-sale and other accounting systems if they can be negotiated into a management agreement."

On the topic of obtaining a liquor license and insurance via using the umbrella restaurants existing approvals, Bruce notes that, "it may be necessary to work out a financial arrangement in which the pop-up doesn't profit from the sale to stay in compliance."
