From the guy who brought you the best grilled cheese sandwich in the United States of America comes a new way to dine with your favorite food carts.
Tired of the lines? Tired of having to track down a tweet? Hoping to have a nice food-cart style meal served in a restaurant-style fashion? Well have no fear because Behind the Cart is here.
Behind the Cart is a spin on VH1 Behind the Music. The goal of the event is to host a mobile underground restaurant that serves a multiple course meal that will always end with some stories. As a local popular food cart vendor something I realized early on is that people are interetsed in the stories behind the carts. We all want to know how the GrilledCheezGuy came to be or what inspired the Creme Brulee cart to hit the streets. This event provides the opportunity to enjoy some of the local food carts best dishes while also sharing stories at the end of the dinner.
This dinner's theme is NOLA baby. When I learned about the history of the location of the dinner I knew I had to try and do a meal that was close to the roots of the place. So put on your fancy dress and head on down to our dinner that is going to be LOUD with the food, the music, and the people. We are hoping to get you on your feet hooping and hollering in praise of the good times you are going to have this time around!
