The Workshop Partners with Lloyd Taco Trucks
This Sunday, Oct. 6, at 6:00 p.m., Chef Edward Forster, founder ofÂ 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, â€œBeet It,â€ prepared by Chef Forster via Lloyd the III. The dish will be pork based and feature products from Oles Farm and Leonard Oakesâ€™ 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.
â€œItâ€™s a pretty exciting second event with two of the coolest kids in town,â€ said Chef Forster. â€œItâ€™s great for the concept to be able to showcase cool, modern â€˜fine dining-ishâ€™ food made off an atypical location/restaurant.â€
Chef Forster said that the point of The Workshop is to showcase just that â€“ food doesnâ€™t have to come from white tablecloths made by someone with a toque, or served on china, or with chairs at all. He doesnâ€™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.
â€œMaybe 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,â€ said Chef Forster. â€œThe point is that food can be whatever you want it to be that day, an evolutionary dining experience, and dining out should be fun.â€
Well said, Chef!
