Chris Long, ex sous chef of Boulder's Black Cat (and a former line cook at Charlie Trotter's) and Cyrus Stroker, a former manager of The Kitchen, also in Boulder, have given up the restaurant business to further their careers in trucking.
Sort of. Seems the two have teamed up to bestow
earth muffins Boulderites with street food from a truck they've named the "Green Gringo." According to the website, the Green Gringo is a "Boulder-based day-glo food truck with a mobile kitchen that serves high quality street food favorites like slow-cooked pork tacos, chile-rubbed beef brisket sandwiches, soups, fresh cut sweet potato fries and warm doughnuts."
The Green Gringo will begin pimping street eats at 9 p.m., Saturday, October 31 on the southeast corner of Pearl and Ninth Streets. Green Gringo will dart around downtown Boulder on a daily basis. And just to keep things interesting, its exact whereabouts can only be pinpointed via "street tweets" at www.twitter.com/thegreengringo. Don't bother looking, though, until 11 a.m., which is when the windows open for business.
