Jon Favreau tweet ‘n’ deleted that he’d be hosting a pop-up based on his fictional cubano food truck El Jefe from his new movie Chef. The would-be pop-up is is apparently erecting itself at Roy Choi’s Line Hotel restaurant Pot Lobby Bar. The now-disappeared tweet read:
“@RidingShotGunLA is doing an #ElJefePopUp@theLineHotelLA 5/15 8-11. If you thought his #cubano looked good in Chef, wait til you taste it.”
But a rep from Pot Lobby Bar in Koreatown confirmed to the Los Angeles Times that the event was indeed on. Ten bucks says the twist is the little kid from the movie assembling the cubanos.
