boston food truck dig out

BOSTON, MA – When Nemo rolled into town, a number of restaurants managed to stay open despite the feet of snow and the driving ban. For the city’s food trucks, though, the driving ban made service temporarily impossible – and even after the ban lifted, there were huge piles of snow taking up most of the trucks’ usual parking spots. Things are slowly getting back to normal, but the trucks have had to get creative and work together over the last few days in order to push forward.

In a last minute truck/restaurant partnership, for example, Roxy’s Grilled Cheese took over the kitchen at Trina’s Starlite Lounge on Saturday night, an arrangement that was put together “in a couple hours,” according to Roxy’s owner James DiSabatino, who added that the place was “packed,” and the evening was “so much fun.” They served up the usual selection of grilled cheese sandwiches, fries, and tomato soup.

As for getting back on the road, DiSabatino reports:

“The storm has really sucked for us. Most of the city spots have snow banks that extend ten feet into the road. The city still insists it’s up to us, so I guess we’re going to try and shovel it and send the city an invoice for a new back if I need one afterwards.”
