Why, do you ask? Pat’s Steaks has been running a guest chef series, serving vegetarian “cheesesteaks” from Sally Eisenberg and Italian Cubano-like sandwiches from Marc Vetri. Next up in the guest chef series is Jose Garces, known for restaurants like Amada and Garces Trading Company.

More from Foobooz:

Garces will be serving the JG Cheesesteak, a steak sandwich made with Pat’s ribeye, served with provolone fondue, To-Jo wild mushrooms, caramelized onions, black truffles. The sandwich will $10 and all proceeds will benefit the Garces Foundation. As if getting a cheesesteak created by Jose Garces wasn’t enough of a reason to head to Pat’s on Monday, one lucky cheesesteak customer will receive two tickets to the Garces Foundation’s benefit. The tickets are valued at $300.

Stop by Pat’s on Monday, March 14 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. to give this specialty sandwich a try.
