140 years ago, France gave us the Statue of Liberty (although there’s debate on who the face is modeled after). And now, they are blessing New York City with yet another gift in time for Bastille Day Weekend: Mustard! (and no, it’s not Grey Poupon).
Luxury mustard makers Maille will be bringing a mustard bar to New York City in the form of a food truck from July 11th to 13th. Originally, La Maison Maille held the unique responsibility of supplying King Louis XV of France with his official stash of vinegar and mustard. Their NYC visit is part of a bi-coastal summer road trip where they will be serving up authentic dijon mustard in complimentary tastings of five different varieties. In addition to free samples, the MMM will also give New Yorkers a chance to compose their own palette of Dijon flavors. The truck that will be serving cornichons of Maille’s mustard, called the Maille Mustard Mobile (MMM), is even eco-friendly.
The times that the Maille Mustard Mobile will be in Manhattan are as follows:
• Friday July 11, Flatiron, 5th Ave between 22nd and 23rd Street (12:00 pm – 6:00 pm)
