In Todd Kliman's weekly chat, a reader asks what the critic thinks of the recent slew of "pop-up" restaurant events at places like Living Social, which he sees more as pricey soft openings. Kliman, essentially, agrees: "They're essentially soft-openings, but very, very public soft-openings...The appeal for the diner, I would think, is simply to get in before the masses and have something to talk about for a few weeks."
