Restaurant Associates Hops on Street Food Bandwagon
The company tasked with handling Capitol Hill’s catering needs is giving pop-up dining a go, rolling out a food truck-inspired program expected to take over the Dirksen Café from July 14 to July 18.
The “food truck station” will not feature food provided by an actual mobile vendor, a spokeswoman for the Architect of the Capitol told HOH, but will mimic the myriad offerings served curbside all over town.
“To be clear, there will not be a DC/local food truck in the Dirksen Café!” the congressional aide stressed after a since-deleted tweet announcing the culinary shake-up piqued our interest.
“The menu will change daily, and the cuisine will be similar to what you would find at a food truck,” Team AOC asserted. HOH tried to pry a few of the planned menu offerings from our contact, but we were told the carte remains in flux.
The weeklong promotion kicks into high gear on July 14 at 11:30 a.m.
