Mayhem & Stout: Fresh and Flavorful

By Danielle Bimston

Though it began as a weekend experiment at Brooklyn’s Dekalb Market in November 2011, this sandwich spot is on it’s way to the top.  At Mayhem & Stout, they’re serving up artisan slow-braised sandwiches topped with amazing sauces and fresh add-ons.

IMG_3730Since their debut, Mayhem & Stout has expanded to a brick and mortar storefront, participating in more than two dozen popular pop-up markets and events throughout the NYC area.  Maybe it’s because their sandwiches are always made to order and served on crisp, airy handmade bread that Mayhem & Stout is so successful; we can assure you, your taste buds will fall in love.

IMG_3715 Not only is their bread absolutely remarkable, but their meats are slow braised until they are succulent and fall-off-the-bone tender.  With options like Braised Pulled Pork, Short Rib & Brisket, and Braised Vegetarian “Meat” Balls, what’s not to love! Creating a sandwich at Mayhem & Stout is like finding the perfect combination of savory flavors that build upon one another to create something magical.  So, make sure you try some of their delicious homemade sauces such as Blueberry Sriracha, Horseradish Creme, or Black Cherry Mustard.

IMG_3723And, if you’re not feeling a sandwich, Mayhem & Stout’s menu includes satisfying salads, hearty rice bowls, and indulgent twists on mac & cheese, as well as desserts from Robicelli’s. Our clients have loved both the sandwiches and rice bowls for lunch in the office. Plus, there are a variety of gluten free, vegan, and vegetarian options; everyone is sure to find something they can enjoy!

Meet the New Truck On the Block: Yankee Doodle Dandy’s

This month, we’re starting a new series called Behind the Food Truck, where we meet the amazing men and women behind our favorite mobile cuisines and share their inspiring stories. At FoodtoEat, we’re lucky to have the best food trucks NYC has to offer in our family. Here are their stories.

Josh Gatewood, the southern gentleman behind Yankee Doodle Dandy’s

This week, I had the pleasure of meeting the southern gentleman behind New York’s most patriotic food truck, Josh Gatewood. Not only does Josh have making delicious southern fried chicken down to a science; he’s got an incredible story. He chose a life on food stamps and working as a fry cook over being a broker on Wall Street – all for the dream of opening his food truck.

Yankee Doodle Dandy’s, one of the newest food trucks to hit the streets, has been a long time coming. Josh admitted he spent more time thinking about his potential business than focusing on the Series 7. He would “Walk around Wall Street quizzing people, ‘what’s a better name for a chicken restaurant? Yankee’s Chicken or Yankee Doodle Dandy’s?’ ” With a stroke of luck and a $25,000 win from Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?, Josh was able to give his dream some momentum.

Josh’s perseverance and dedication has brought him to where he is today – owning one of New York’s only authentic southern food trucks. Josh is committed to making his food the best it can possibly be and it definitely shows.

Their Winner Winner fried chicken special is everything you would want in a southern dish – juicy, well-seasoned and best of all: big portions. Along with four incredible chicken tenders, it is served with a giant slice of  grilled Texas toast, homemade potato salad and their original Spirit of ’76 sauce. Words cannot properly describe how delicious the Spirit of ’76 sauce is with the chicken tenders and fries. Josh says, “People come back just for the sauce.” At only $8.50, this special is a total “winner.”

At the end of the day, Yankee Doodle Dandy’s is all about bringing southern hospitality and authenticity to New York City and hopefully expanding to other major cities. Josh said, “It was roller coaster getting here. Sometimes you have those introspective moments you feel super blessed to be doing what you’re doing.”
