The Workshop Partners with Lloyd Taco Trucks
This Sunday, Oct. 6, at 6:00 p.m., Chef Edward Forster, founder of The Workshop Buffalo, will team up with Lloyd Taco Trucks for his second pop-up restaurant offering in a to-be-announced location on Elmwood Avenue in the Elmwood Village. The first 100-150 people to arrive will have the chance to purchase a special dish within the theme, “Beet It,” prepared by Chef Forster via Lloyd the III. The dish will be pork based and feature products from Oles Farm and Leonard Oakes’ apples and cider. The cost is $10, cash only. The exact location of the event will be announced about one hour before the start time via social media.
“It’s a pretty exciting second event with two of the coolest kids in town,” said Chef Forster. “It’s great for the concept to be able to showcase cool, modern ‘fine dining-ish’ food made off an atypical location/restaurant.”
Chef Forster said that the point of The Workshop is to showcase just that – food doesn’t have to come from white tablecloths made by someone with a toque, or served on china, or with chairs at all. He doesn’t yet know where the concept will go, since he may switch it up at any time, which is part of the beauty of it.
“Maybe the next one will be an eight course BYO, or a soup kitchen idea where you get a one pot avant-garde soup and it feeds someone in need as well, or a cocktail party outside on ice skates,” said Chef Forster. “The point is that food can be whatever you want it to be that day, an evolutionary dining experience, and dining out should be fun.”
Well said, Chef!
