Back by popular demand, Decadence Gourmet Cheesecakes founder and chef Lee Mathis is set to put on a second pop-up restaurant from a food cart outside Peach Street Distillers, 144 Kluge Ave.

Scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 5, the restaurant will be open from 5-7:30 p.m. or until food runs out.

For one night only, Mathis created a theme menu called “Cheeze’s,” in which he will serve eight types of gourmet grilled-cheese sandwiches with dipping soups and habanero-jalapeno pickles. Soups will be sold separately,too, and there will be vegetarian options. The price range is $6-$9 per food item.

“It will run the heat gamut,” Mathis said, with more mild options than his first pop-up restaurant — En Fuego — which opened and closed on Nov. 14.

Spicy options will definitely be available, however — sweet potato ghost fries with Trinidad scorpion dipping sauce, jalapeno tomato soup and sandwiches with some kick are listed among more subdued food options.

Mathis added that he was “blown away” from the attendance at En Fuego, with close to 70 people showing up for his first attempt.

“The Flaming Burgers were a big hit,” he said.

For Cheeze’s, Peach Street will be open as well, serving local spirits in its tasting room.

This event will be the last of the year for Mathis, though he noted more to come in 2014.

“I want to do it monthly,” Mathis said.
