The Scoop: Food truck chef keeps foot on solid ground at brick-and-mortar restaurant Nosh

November 28th 11:11am, 2011

060711_gsfBrian Hardesty (pictured at left) has been hired as the executive chef at Nosh, the bistro located inside wine shop Starrs in Richmond Heights. As reported by Byron Kerman for St. Louis Magazine, Hardesty will be splitting his time between the restaurant, located at 1135 S. Big Bend Blvd., and his burgeoning food truck biz, Guerrilla Street Food. Last spring, Hardesty resigned from the top kitchen spot at the now-defunct Terrene to devote himself to his meals-on-wheels operation.

How will Hardesty juggle helming the kitchen at Nosh and keeping a hand in food truck affairs? “With a full staff on the truck and in the restaurant, I won’t be on the truck for daily service,” explained Hardesty. “Instead, I will get more time to create dishes for the truck in the prep kitchen.”

Hardesty is planning a complete menu overhaul at Nosh, a restaurant that has seen several chef changes as well as a move from its original Maplewood location where it sat for less than a year. So, can customers at the brick-and-mortar eatery expect to see some items from the Filipino-inspired Guerrilla Street Food menu? “No, completely separate [menus],” Hardesty confirmed.
