Morris Grilled Cheese Is Off to Paris

Here's your first look at the frenchified version of the Morris Grilled Cheese truck, due to hit the streets of Paris next month. Michael Jacober, who is also opening a brick-and-mortar restaurant project this fall in Brooklyn, tells us that organizer Anna Polonsky invited Morris to come to France shortly after she tried one of the truck's grilled-cheese sandwiches during last month's Le Fooding festivities. He couldn't believe it at first, but early next month he and chef Chris Austin will participate in a two-day street festival that brings together the "crème de la crème of food trucks" from all over the world. Of course, the actual truck won't be shipped over: Le Fooding is renting a cream-colored step van and is even manufacturing a neon sign to match the New York truck's original version. "The next time we have some event in Paris," Jacober says, laughing, "we'll have our 'Eat' sign ready to go." [Earlier]
