Here’s the synopsis of “Chef,” the new film from writer/director/actor Jon Favreau: “A chef who loses his restaurant job starts up a food truck in an effort to reclaim his creative promise, while piecing back together his estranged family.”
Good early reviews, and an IMBd rating of 7.7 seem promising.
But another really good reason to check out the Atlanta premiere of “Chef” presented by Taste of Atlanta on Tuesday night is that it benefits the Legacy Lives On Fund of Atlanta food truck pioneer Terry Hall who passed away in February. Hall owned the Happy Belly food truck and is survived by his wife and two small children.
The evening at CineBistro Brookhaven includes the screening, tastes from Atlanta food truck owners, beverages and a live streaming Q&A with Favreau and film critic Pat Travers after the movie. Tickets are $50 per person.
