Last month, we brought you news that Ezra Malmuth and Nathan Barnett, who have been cooking together since they started a barbecue club in response to their school installing a vegetarian salad bar, planned to wheel a food truck onto the street. Their concept was Stick it to Me, a mobile kitchen serving gourmet food on a stick.
And now the friends are ready to make their debut -- at a tacky sweater party.
Specifically, the guys will set up at the Atomic Cowboy (the subject of this week's review), 3237 East Colfax Avenue, on December 17, where they'll offer a menu of fried mashed potato balls, waffles with fruit compote and Korean BBQ short ribs on a stick.
"We're doing quick easy eat food for the event," says Malmuth. "We'll have salads and stuff, too, when we're out during the day."
