ANNIVERSARYWIRE — On April 2, Market Street cafe Brasserie Gigi welcomes its first birthday with specials from chef Frank McMahon (a savory gougère amuse-bouche) and sister restaurant Peninsula Grill's pastry chef Claire Chapman (madeleines). The Gigi Martini will be offered for $8. Celebrate in French flair.  [EaterWire]

MEALS ON WHEELS — Prohibition's chef Stephen Thompson is taking a break from the whisky-soaked bar to start a food truck. The food is influenced by flavors of Asia and Latin America — think steam buns and fried paella rice. Mobile kitchen Dashi is already on the road and usually parked in the Morris Sokol lot (510 King St.) Thursday through Saturday evenings. Post and Courier chats with Thompson about his truck and somewhat controversial logo.  [P&C]

CHEF SHUFFLES — Opening Stars Restaurant chef Nathan Thurston has worked as a consulting culinary figure and caterer for over a year, but now he has a shiny, new website to flaunt his skills. Thurston Southern recently launched with praise, photos, and services. [EaterWire]
