Chef 5 Bites: Brian Arnoff

5 Bites continues going behind the
steering wheels of DC's food trucks with chef Brian Arnoff of the
soon-to-roll CapMac DC.

Arnoff most recently worked under executive chef
David Varley at Michael Mina’s Bourbon Steak. The native of Poughkeepsie, NY, has also worked with James Beard award winning chef Barbara Lynch at Sportello in Boston, and relevant to his pasta menu, he attended Apicius, the Culinary Institute of Florence.

The CapMac
menu will include soups, salads and pastas including a signature mac n’
cheese, chicken Parmigiano Reggiano meatballs with a provolone b├ęchamel
sauce, and a 20-layer lasagna.

Keep updated on the truck's launch date — and free tastings of the CapMac n’ Cheese — on Twitter @CapMacDC.

1. Fried chicken at Henry's Soul Cafe on K Street

2. Chili cheese burger at Good Stuff Eatery

3. Skate at Black Salt.
It was perfectly cooked in butter and super fresh, and I have to
mention that it was served with roasted brussels sprouts and some of the
lightest gnocchi I have had in a long time (and I consider myself
something of a gnocchi snob) .

4. Mussels at Granville Moore's  (especially on Monday night when they are half off during happy hour)

5. Charcuterie plate at Bourbon Steak,
and it's not because along with your meat you get bacon marmalade,
pimento cheese and house pickled vegetables, but for the coppa and coppa
alone, which is amazing, perfectly seasoned and melts in your mouth.
