Chief Brody’s Banh Mi Truck + Jason Sobocinski Sock it to Homelessness

9 Oct

As a continuation of his Guest Chef Series, Chef Greg Martell from Chief Brody’s Banh Mi food truck will be teaming up with Chef Jason Sobocinski from Caseus in New Haven and Black Hog. They’ll be manning the food truck together on October 15 from 11-3 at the corner of York and Chapel. At that time they will not only be serving up their regular awesome menu, but will also have a special Banh Mi from the food-genius mind of Jason Sobocinski. But, this isn’t the first time these two chefs have worked together, oh no. Martell actually used to work the Caseus food truck!

Oh, and there’s an extra incentive to order that special sandwich: Chief Brody’s will donate $2 from every purchase to Columbus House Inc. who serves the homeless and those in risk of being homeless. In addition, they will be a Sock Drive going down. Just bring a pair of new socks in and you’ll be entered to win some great swag from Caseus, Ordinary, Black Hog, and Chief Brody’s.

While you might not recognize the name The First Kitchen, you might remember the location.  Just a few months ago Saigon Cafe had opened in that spot on 80 Atlantic, offering Stamford some authentic Vietnamese.  Unfortunately, we waited too long to try it out, and now it’s gone, but we have First Kitchen in its place.
