This Thursday's menu will be a collection of street foods found across Asia--sometimes with an MSF twist. Helping to deliver this will be Carlo Espinas (Filipino; currently working at Bar Jules and formerly chef of Piccino), Danny Bowien (Korean; currently working at Bar Tartine and Good Evening Thursday) and Chris Ying (Chinese; Co-Editor of Meat Paper and formerly of Foreign Cinema and Downtown).
MSF Profits will go to the Chinatown Community Development Center's Food Pantry which provides groceries for 190 Single Room Occupancy Tenants each week. "The food distribution is special to Chinatown CDC because many tenants are willing to volunteer. The elderly and teenagers work side-by-side and get acquainted at the same time."
