Movin’ on up…to the food truck in the sky!

Check out this article from the NY Times about food trucks servicing high-rise buildings in New York.

Apparently a few high-rise buildings have invited local food trucks to ride up their freight elevators to set up shop in the building. Initially, this idea was pretty exciting to me. Get on board with the food truck! Expose more people to different food!

but…

When I think about the food truck “movement”,  I think about community, about meeting a new friend in line, about getting outside and exploring your neighborhood. Hauling the truck up on the elevator just doesn’t mesh with those ideas.

but…

I also get that a big advantage of a food truck is to take the food to the people and open up access in areas where it doesn’t make sense to have a brick and mortar restaurant.

I’m conflicted but I suppose the bigger picture is that more people are getting to eat interesting food and that can’t be bad, right?

(maybe I’m just jealous ’cause the food trucks don’t come to me at work! hint, hint  Taco Sherpa and Famous Naters!)
