Chefs Sarah Pinkin and Elizabeth Payne enjoy great success with their Frenchie French food cart and will give everyone another chance at tastes in a pop-up appearance at 521 B Broadway in Sonoma on Thursday, Jan. 18.
On the pop-up menu will be roasted root vegetable soup, chicken tortilla soup, Vietnamese skirt steak salad, salmon Niçoise salad, goat cheese, fig jam and arugula baguette sandwiches, and a ham, brie and Dijon mustard baguette. 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Catch it while you can.
Not only that, but Frenchie will soon open in permanent digs at the site of the old Shone’s Market on Broadway, most recently occupied by Love and Lovely Studio. Their plan, according to Pinkin, “is to make a general store featuring Frenchie grab-and-go picnics, lunches and dinners.”
Says Pinkin: “We will also be selling cool local food products and hopefully beer and wine. A great spot to grab a picnic for the Plaza or a quick lunch or dinner for locals.”
Pinkin formerly worked at Mondo Café and served as chef at Murphy’s Irish Pub several years ago. Payne was chef and instructor at Ramekins Culinary School and at Williams-Sonoma. They hope to open before May 1.
