Here's the hour-long line for Cubano sandwiches at the El Jefe pop-up last night at Animal, hosted by Jon Shook, Vinny Dotolo, Roy Choi, and Jon Favreau. While diners inside were treated to a $75 tasting menu of bites inspired by the Chef movie, outsiders were at least afforded the chance to get a Cubano sandwich.

Anyone passing by Fairfax on a weekday will know that lines form pretty regularly when Supreme issues a rare sneaker, but this time around, the foodies won the line game. According to Tien Nyugen, who was on site, there was a line around the block at 7 p.m. Also, how about that Choi-Shook-Dotolo superteam?
