The 5pm Post – Uncurbed: DC’s 1st Traveling Food Truck Restaurant

From a press release:

The District’s first traveling restaurant opens in Georgetown December 13th through 17th

Uncurbed is a traveling restaurant that brings the enjoyment of the food truck experience off the curb and into various vacant spaces. The first Uncurbed DC will feature a BBQ Bus Holiday House Party in a vacant second-story space at 2805 M Street NW.

Jeff Kelley of Wonky Promotions explains, “Uncurbed was born out of a desire to bring vibrancy to vacant spaces through a combination of great food, local art, and lively entertainment. By joining forces with food trucks to cater food service at these events, we are partnering with
people who care deeply about engaging their customers in meaningful and innovative ways. Che and Tadd at BBQ Bus epitomize this thoughtful approach.”

The restaurant will feature a menu of smoked ribs, pulled pork sandwiches and other BBQ and comfort food classics regularly served by the BBQ Bus food truck.

“We opened BBQ Bus because we love cooking and sharing good times with family and friends,” said BBQ Bus Chef and owner Tadd Ruddell-Tabisola. “Uncurbed gives us the opportunity to share those passions with guests in a relaxed, house-party environment.” Uncurbed is a production by Wonky Promotions and verdeHOUSE, a DC based company that activates vacant space with temporary users.

  • Great! Hope it’s open for lunch. Always looking for more Georgetown lunch options.

  • Very cool idea for bringing life to vacant property. From their website it looks like they are using vacant properties owned by a specific developer? I wonder if the city’s Temporary Urbanism initiative has anything to do with this.

  • Hi Julie! verdeHOUSE (@verdehouse / is proudly behind the activation of this property. vH creates value out of vacancy by connecting temporary users to unused property. 2805 M is owned by Foxhall Partners and is being leased by Streetsense. We will be activating many more vacant properties throughout DC with Uncurbed and other uses!
