Matt and Nic Patrizi, the brothers behind Patrizi’s, the Italian pasta food truck, are expanding with a new trailer focused on Cajun food. Vic & Al’s will open in Scoot Inn sometime in March. The duo is converting Jalopy’s old truck into a kitchen.

The Cajun array will be based on cochon de lait, slow-roasted suckling pig. The meat will become the base for many dishes like gumbos, rillettes, and boudins. The truck will also work on making items, like cheese, in-house. Scope out the full menu below, and look out for daily specials.

Similar to Patrizi’s, which opened in 2013 at Butterfly Bar, Vic & Al’s will include 85 seats at tables, with hosts and servers. Update, February 5: Nic Patrizi reached out to clarify that Vic & Al's will include indoor seating within Scoot Inn. The name comes from the brothers’ grandparents restaurant in Beaumont during the 1940s in Beaumont. The only other food truck on the Scoot Inn grounds is comfort food Hot Mess. The food truck is no longer there.
