Twin brothers Edward and Anthony Charles hope to open an Italian restaurant together someday, and they’re taking a pop-up path to help build finances and a following. The vehicle is Gemellis (based on the Italian word for twins), which offers a set-price, family-style Italian feast, and the latest edition is coming up on Aug. 9.

Edward Charles is sous chef at the Uptown bistro Lilette, and that’s where he’s been hosting Gemellis dinners periodically since late 2012. These dinners have always been on Monday nights when Lilette is normally closed. But Lilette is now on its annual summer break through Aug. 13, so this next Gemellis will take over the restaurant for a primetime slot on Friday night.

The setting at Lilette is stylish, but the Gemellis format is laidback, with four courses served family style on shared platters. Wine is included in the $60 price, and dinner begins at 6:30 p.m. Here’s the menu.

For reservations, e-mail gemellispopup@gmail.com or call (504) 432-1380.
