After months of anticipation, the day is finally here: Our 6th annual Food Truck Derby will roll into Bridgehampton this afternoon, from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m.
Finally, we get to resume our favorite summer posture: Standing in a field full of food trucks—eating, drinking, and saying hello to both old and new friends.
One of those old friends we can’t wait to see is Noah’s on the Road. A North Fork favorite food truck brought to the world by Noah Schwartz, executive chef at his eponymous restaurant in Greenport, Noah’s on the Road joins us today for its 4th Food Truck Derby. We can’t imagine our Derby without them and their delicious, thoughtful food.
We spoke with Noah’s on the Road about how they are preparing for the Food Truck Derby, what they’ll be serving, and what they’re most looking forward to about the event. Here’s what they said.
Edible East End: How did the story of your food truck begin? When did you get started?
Noah’s: We are based on the North Fork, specifically Greenport at Noah’s, there was a lot of demand to bring Noah’s food to the local vineyards. Thus a Vintage Airstream became our mobile kitchen. We started in 2015.
Edible East End: What is your favorite part of owning a food truck?
N: Meeting new people, being able to always change the menu, and the ability to take the business “on the road.”
Edible East End: Is there anything you think people would be surprised to learn about owning and operating a food truck on Long Island?
