Good news for the celiac crowd: Toki Underground will host a gluten-free pasta pop-up with Michelin-starred chef Mark Ladner of New York City’s Del Posto.

Come November 6, diners can get a taste of Ladner’s Pasta Flyer, a fast-casual concept that promises to deliver Italian-style bowls of gluten-free noodles “as fast as a bowl of Japanese ramen.” The menu features three pasta shapes—screws, elbows, and tubes—which can be sauced with pesto, alfredo, or marinara, and topped with proteins such as a truffled egg. In addition to the bowls, you’ll find veggie burgers from Del Posto pastry chef Brooks Headley.

Lunch and dinner will run from 11:30 to close. As with past Toki pop-ups, space is limited and no reservations are accepted, so better queue early.
