Sounds like a great addition to the food truck scene. You can follow them on twitter @CapMacDC to monitor the exact launch date. From a press release:

Exciting young chef, Brian Arnoff, strikes out on his own to bring gourmet pasta to Washington D.C. Since attending Apicius – The Culinary Institute of Florence, Chef Arnoff, has worked under James Beard Award winning chef Barbara Lynch and most recently has been working at Michael Mina’s Bourbon Steak at the Four Season’s D.C. under Executive Chef David Varley and Executive Sous-Chef William Morris. He has decided to take his high level of training out on the road to give the Nation’s Capital a taste of gourmet food on the go.

The specially outfitted food truck will bring a taste of Florence to Washington workers and tourists. Items on the menu will include: soul satisfying soups, salads and pastas including CapMac™ n’ Cheese, Chicken Parmagiano Reggiano Meatball with a secret provolone béchamel sauce, and the Florentine specialty Venti –20 layer lasagna.

Chef Arnoff got the idea for a pasta food truck from the macaroni stands that lined the streets of lower Manhattan’s Little Italy in the early part of the 20th century. The bright yellow and orange truck will be patrolling the streets of Washington D.C. offering gourmet pasta dishes beginning in early November with free tastings of the eponymous CapMac n’ Cheese.

  • Safe to say that the shark has now been jumped w/r/t food truck mania.

      Not to mention the mac and cheese mania.

    ^ Agreed!!!!! Holy cow, can they stop with the food trucks already? I give this guy less than a year.

  • We spent four days in Florence a few weeks ago for our honeymoon. Generally great food there, but I never recall seeing any 20-layer lasagna on restaurant menus. (Too bad the food truck can’t recreate the excellent tagliatelle with porcini mushrooms we enjoyed several times in Florence!)

    I’ve never been to Florence, but I’ve had “this guy’s” cooking and he is brilliant. Lick your plate clean and go back for more is what I’m saying. I am really excited to have him here in Washington.
