Last Friday, Chef David Stein made the first of what he hopes to be many lunchtime openings of his food truck Go Fish! in the Navy Yard. By the corner of Fifth Street and First Avenue, the brand-new and brightly colored truck raised its grate to serve delicious, mostly seafood offerings. The truck was supposed to make its Navy Yard debut on Friday July 15 but was delayed a week due to a permitting problem.
Go Fish is scheduled to be in the Navy Yard for lunch, Friday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. from now until, “Hopefully through Christmas,” said Stein.
Stein has a rich culinary history beginning in 1987 when he graduated of the Culinary Institute of America, he also hold a BS in Culinary Management from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. “I am very excited to work in the Navy Yard, years ago I cooked at the MGH here and just fell in love with the neighborhood.”
“I have heard that there is some push-back in the neighborhood [about the food truck operating in the Navy Yard] and I look forward to meeting with members of the community and to address their concerns,” said Stein. “I try to be sensitive to the businesses around me, for instance, I don’t sell any water or sodas only house-made iced tea and lemonade so as to not compete with local convenience stores,” Stein then pointed across the street at Tedeschi Food shop on First Avenue.
Stein also stated that, somewhere down the line, with the help of the community, he would like to mix his two biggest passions, cooking and music with a blues brunch to bring neighbors together for some great food and entertainment.
