Kaki Lima Is Heading to New York City

by Marc Hurwitz

A beloved pop-up restaurant that features Indonesian food is saying farewell to Boston.

According to an article in Boston Magazine, Kaki Lima is moving to New York City this summer, as co-owner Peter Gelling is returning to his career in journalism and has taken a job there. Gelling and chef Retno Pratiwi--who hails from Jakarta--started the business approximately five years ago, with the couple offering street food items at various pop-ups along with such longer-term gigs as KO Pies at the Shipyard in East Boston and Wink and Nod in the South End. Gelling and Pratiwi do promise to pop up again in Boston at some point and also plan to have one more dinner series in the city before heading to New York in June.
