Choi, who served as a consultant on the film, sent Jon Favreau, the film’s star (as well as director and writer) to a French culinary school in preparation for the role.
From 8 p.m. until 11 p.m. at Pot Lobby Bar, Choi will serve Cubanos from the film’s El Jefe food truck for $7, guava cheesecake and El Jefe cake for $3 each, as well as offer drink specials on beer and mojitos.
As a special incentive, the first hundred guests to arrive at the pop-up party will receive a limited edition Chef movie poster designed by Robert Downey, Jr.
Finally, music will be provided by DJ Mattheu Schreyer, the film’s music supervisor.
Chef is screening in select theatres across the country as of May 9th, and also features Sofía Vergara, Oliver Platt, Dustin Hoffman, Amy Sedaris, among others.
