DC’s Next Food Truck – Lobster Rolls!

Yesterday’s Judging Restaurants post reviewed the Sauca food truck. While there were mostly positive comments, my favorite one included a link to a New York Times article about about a Lobster Roll truck coming to DC:

Susan Povich, a proprietor of the pound, which in addition to live Maine lobsters sells prepared lobster rolls at the Brooklyn Flea and at its storefront operation on Van Brunt Street in Brooklyn, said that the company would be starting its southern strategy on April 30 at the Azalea Garden Festival in Bethesda, selling lobster rolls from a tent.

Ms. Povich and her husband, Ralph Gorham, have purchased a truck from which to sell rolls in the District, Ms. Povich said, and they will be starting that business in early June, as soon as the vehicle is “totally tricked-out.”

I can’t express in words how happy this makes me.

But if you can’t wait until June H Street, NE’s Liberty Tree currently serves a terrific lobster roll.

    Wow. Awesome. Another great NYC trend (the food truck, some REALLY good ones in Manhattan now) working its way to DC … now if only a few of these trucks would occasionally stop by Columbia Heights, etc.!

    Maury Povich’s daughter? Had to google – apparently yes:

    Also, Martha Stewart did a show on the Brooklyn Flea and the lobster rolls were one of the vendors she featured…

    Another item featured from the Brooklyn Flea were Maptote bags. Since I’m a map geek I had to check them out and got a few of their Washington DC totes:

    Hey Guys! We’re really excited to be bringing our lobster rolls to DC! We’ll keep you posted as to our actual launch date, but we will be at the Landon Azalea Festival, The Virginia Wine Festival, and the Capital Pride Festival. We’re looking forward seeing all of you out there…

    A special thanks to the Prince of Petworth for the mention!
