Local artisanal sandwich and salad concept Mendocino Farms is thrilled to announce that they’ve partnered with renowned Cassia Chef Bryant Ng of the recently James Beard nominated Rustic Canyon Family of Restaurants to create a limited time only sandwich offering benefiting The People Concern, a non-profit devoted to helping improve the lives of those who are food insecure, homeless or victims of domestic violence.
Chef Bryant’s Lemongrass Chicken Sandwich with Chickpea Curry Sauce will be available at both Mendocino Farms local outposts (La Jolla and Del Mar) from March 12th-25th giving San Diegans the opportunity to get a taste of one of Los Angeles’ most recognizable chefs without having to deal with the headache of LA traffic. Chef Bryant has won numerous culinary accolades including Food & Wine Best New Chef in 2012. At the helm of Cassia, he’s witnessed the restaurant become a critically-acclaimed dining darling, receiving a James Beard semifinalist nod in 2015 for Best New Restaurant and three stars in the New York Times.
Inspired by Cassia’s popular Chickpea Curry served with clay oven-baked flatbread, Chef Bryant’s thoughtfully conceived sandwich features shaved, roasted Mary’s free-range chicken, scallion and lemongrass relish, fresh herb salad and fontina cheese, served on rustic white bread. For added flavor and texture, Chef Bryant has added a layer of provolone on the outside of the bread and a side of chickpea coconut curry for dipping.
100% of proceeds will go directly to The People Concern.
